Document Shredding Stafford
Stafford is a town in Staffordshire and is surrounded by a number of smaller towns such as Littleworth, Castletown, Forebridge, Rowley Park, Meadowcroft Park, Rickerscote, Burleyfields and Doxey. With the M6 linking Stafford to Manchester and Birmingham, Topwood can easily provide secure shredding services in Stafford on a weekly basis.
High Security Paper Shredding
Stafford has a long history of manufacturing including shoemaking, electrical engineering and diesel engine factories. More recently the town is a large employer in the public sector with Staffordshire County Council, Beacon Barracks -MOD Stafford, HMP Stafford and Stafford Hospital. Public sector organisations accumulate large amounts of confidential waste paper. Once no longer needed, organisations much destroy data in order to remain compliant with GDPR. For public sector organisations, high security shredding is required. All of Topwood’s mobile MDX shred trucks are fitted with state of the art shredding technology to cross cut up to DIN 66399 level P-4 (EN15713 Security level 6).
Bulk Shredding Stafford
For some companies, high security shredding to DIN66399 level P-4 is not necessary. We can provide a shredding service whereby our mobile shredders clear a backlog of waste paper and archive boxes that are filling archive rooms and have passed their retention date. For a bulk shredding service, there is no need to bag or box up your papers. We just need your papers on ground floor level and ready for our drivers to load into their wheelie bins. The shred trucks will lift up the wheelie bins, weigh them and tip the contents into the shredder. This is a popular choice for school and universities like Staffordshire University and South Staffordshire College that have a purge over summer at the end of the academic year.
Similarly with manufacturers and engineering organisations located on industrial estates in Stafford such as Tollgate Industrial Estate, Redhill Business Park and Staffordshire Technology Park, bulk clearances at the end of a financial year are more suited.
On-site shredding means your data destruction policies will be 100% compliant with GDPR. Your data can never be lost or mis-used once it is shredded in our trucks. Please refer to our FAQ Why is on site shredding the safest option.
However, the NHS example above demonstrates data breaches occur within the workplace. In fact, 85% of data breaches occur within an organisation.
By providing free on loan secure lockable receptacles and containers within your workplace, unwanted documents and data can be safely deposited without the risk of prying eyes taking an interest.
These containers are emptied by our security vetted staff as part of or our regular on-site shredding service in Lichfield.
If you currently use off-site shredding make the switch to on-site to improve your security at NO EXTRA COST.
With high security shred trucks regularly in the Potteries, and scheduled pickups along the A500 and the A50 in the six towns that make up the city namely Tunstall, Burslem, Hanley, Stoke, Fenton and Longton, Topwood are well placed to service Staffordshire and the surrounding areas.
Topwood reviewed the security arrangements for the disposal of sensitive papers from a Staffordshire-based College.
A gap analysis showed there was significant potential for data breaches. Please see our ‘How Secure is Your Paper Recycling Process Checklist’ to see how key weaknesses were identified and the corrective measures taken using an improved shredding process.
Our shred trucks have a capacity of over five tonnes for on-site purges and bulk clearances. If you are looking for scheduled regular on-site shredding we have trucks in Staffordshire every week. To help keep your workplace secure we can supply free on loan receptacles and other secure containers for the safe collection of sensitive papers prior to their destruction.
