On-Site Paper Shredding Services

Confidential on-site document shredding or mobile document shredding is where we bring one of our mobile shred trucks to you. Our uniformed, security vetted staff then transfer your confidential waste to the truck. The waste is weighed before the high-speed document shredders cut your files into tiny fragments. The shreds are pushed into the back of the truck and we take them away.

100% of the paper shredded on-site is baled and recycled into useful paper products.

Some standards, such as the CPNI standard for the destruction of sensitive items, stipulate documents and files must be cross cut for added security. Our mobile document shredding machines have cross cutting capability.

Once the on-site destruction is complete you will be asked to sign the driver’s electronic hand-held which displays the total kg shredded and other details. An e-receipt is then emailed directly to you with a link to download your Certificate of Destruction.

If you would like to find out more about our on-site paper shredding services call 0800 781 1066 or request a quote using our get a quote form. 

Off-Site Document Shredding Services

The collection of confidential waste for off-site document shredding is a totally safe method of paper disposal. Within hours of collection by our security vetted staff the waste is weighed and tipped directly into high security industrial shredders.

Documents and files are cross-cut and then baled. The baled paper is sent to a local paper mill where it is pulped and recycled into useful paper products. Paper shredding and recycling could not be easier!

For our off-site destruction service, collections of confidential waste can be either scheduled or ad-hoc.

This keeps your workplace free of sensitive documents and helps prevent breaches of security.

Using our own fleet of GPS tracked vehicles we make shredding collections ranging from a single archive box up to an articulated lorry load of 26 pallets (1200 archive boxes).

Many organisations believe the purchase of office paper shredders will sufficiently cope with the destruction of their confidential paper waste. Whilst these shredders are sold as heavy-duty shredders, they still require the removal of staples, paperclips, bulldog clips and other such bindings which is time consuming. In addition, these shredders cannot cope with more than a few sheets per pass, so staff waste valuable time waiting for papers to shred.

For regular scheduled shredding collections, we provide a range of lockable consoles and wheelie bins so unwanted documents and files can safely be deposited in advance of our visit.

As part of the service, we supply a variety of lockable shredding containers. Regardless of whether secure consoles or wheeled shredding bins best suit your needs our regular shredding services ensure unwanted documents can be safely and easily deposited in your workplace.

You are safe in the knowledge that prying eyes cannot view unwanted paperwork. This secures the first link in the chain of custody as the documents and files remain locked in the shredding containers until our security vetted operatives empty the contents direct into a shredder either on-site or at our secure shredding facility.

One-off Document Shredding Services

Organisations often need to dispose of large amounts of confidential paper when files reach the end of their scheduled retention period.

Whether you want on-site shredding at your workplace or off-site shredding at our secure shredding facility we can destroy anything from a single file up to bulk clearances of many thousands of boxes.

Regardless of whether your files are contained in archive boxes or loose we can handle them directly into the shredders. If you need to sort files prior to shredding, we can supply a range of shred sacks and wheelie bins that help you assemble material for secure destruction. The contents of sacks and wheeled containers are tipped directly into the cutting chamber of the shredders so there is no actual contact between the shredding crews and the documents.

As our shred trucks have a load capacity of 6 tonnes and shred rate of 3000kg per hour we can destroy on-site over 500 archive boxes in a few hours. If off-site shredding is preferred, we can collect using our own transport up to 1200 boxes.

If you would like to find out more about our one-off document shredding services call 0800 781 1066 or request a quote using our get a quote form.

  • Step 1: Arrive and park up and notify reception.
