The Norwich shredding depot covers a large portion of our shredding services across the country, and the depot is a constant hive of activity. It is in the shredding depot itself that Josh works as a Warehouse Operative. Josh is a very well-liked member of the team. He does a fantastic job in the warehouse, and also assists many other departments from time to time. In the past, this has included delivering hoodies for the homeless in Norwich, and even dogsitting the directors’ dogs when they have been travelling on business!
