  • First, get a good estimate of how much paper you’ll have to destroy. If you can estimate a rough number of boxes, bins, pallets, or loose weight, your shredding service provider can provide you with a quote quickly. If you need assistance in estimating, take a photo of the containers you need to shred and our experienced team can help. You don’t need to remove staples, plastic wallets, paperclips, or things like lever-arch folders; we can shred those too.
  • Secondly, decide what service you feel comfortable with. All of our services are totally secure, but we understand that, sometimes, the added peace of mind of on-site destruction is a must, especially for first-time customers. We can also shred bulk materials off-site and can accept pre-booked deliveries of bulk materials to our destruction centres in Norfolk, Manchester, and Harlow.
  • With that information, our shredding specialists can provide you with a no-obligation quote. We dispose of large amounts of paperwork regularly, shredding over 60,000 tonnes every year. We have the experience to take on jobs of any size.
  • Arrange a date. Our team will provide a range of suitable dates we are in your area and we’ll get you booked in. Once collected, we’ll issue you a digital Waste Transfer Note, and a Certificate of Destruction once shredding is complete.
  • Unlike other shredding service providers, Shred Station operates with a strict Zero to Landfill policy and will recycle 100% of your shredded paperwork at UK mills. We are also a CarbonNeutral® certified company, helping with your ESG goals.
