As you can see above, we can shred many materials. We can shred plastics, metals, ceramics, photographic paper, uniforms, textiles, digital media storage devices, and confidential paperwork. 100% of paper we shred on your behalf will be recycled at UK paper mills, and where possible, we recycle many other materials too. Unrecyclable products are either turned into refuse derived fuel or are incinerated to generate energy for the National Grid. Absolutely nothing we shred goes to landfill.

If you’re still wondering “what can I shred?”, or are unsure that we can shred the materials you have, get in touch today.
