Paper Shredding

We may be living in the digital age, but the paperless home or office is still far from a reality and demand for our paper shredding continues to grow. Since the introduction of GDPR and the rise in reported confidential data breaches, paper shredding is required more than ever. 

Shredding confidential paper documents is essential for businesses and organisations with the latest data protection law. Any document containing sensitive information should be destroyed when no longer needed and within regulation timeframes – even if it’s just a scribbled note of a customer’s address.

Our secure and cost-effective shredding services are a quick and easy way for your business to meet GDPR data destruction requirements, and we’ll provide you with a Certificate of Destruction for your Chain of Custody records.

On-Site Paper Shredding

Our mobile shredders, which are securely integrated into our bespoke shredding vehicles, can handle 3 tonnes of paper shredding per hour. This is the equivalent of around 600,000 sheets. This whole process is done on-site at your premises and can be witnessed by a staff member of your choosing if you so require. Find more detail on our mobile shredding service here.

Off-Site Paper Shredding

Our off-site paper shredding service is very affordable and after collection, the shredding takes place at our high-security depots. Here, our industrial shredding machinery can handle over 10 tonnes of paper per hour – around 2 million sheets. Find more detail on our off-site shredding service here.

Industrial shredding machines are a world away from the small office shredders you can buy in the shops. Our shredding machines shred your documents into very small particles, and also mix the fragments up with particles from other sources, ensuring your confidential data is irretrievable following destruction.
