Secure shredding of your confidential waste should be easy.
The vehicles we use to transport confidential material are GPS-tracked and CCTV monitored. Our drivers are ISO14001 ISO9001 certified to collect your confidential documents.
This means that they'll be in safe hands from the moment the sacks are removed from your lockable bins (which we'll also provide).
The bags are then taken to a BS EN 15713 accredited facility, to be securely shredded. This means that the facility will have the following conditions in place:
- Security screening of employees
- On site security
- Process for how sensitive information is collected, retained and transferred
- Security precautions during destruction of materials
- Management and control of confidential material destruction
- Proof the destruction process has taken place.
The paper is shredded and baled (which usually takes 24 hours), you'll receive a 'Certificate of Destruction' which confirms it's been shredded and disposed of securely.
The shredded paper is chemically and mechanically processed to produce pulp.
To remove the contamination and any other impurities, the pulp goes is soaked to remove ink and impurities.
Then it's rolled into sheets of bright white, good-as-new office paper. Where material is recycled back into the product it came from originally, this is known as closed loop recycling.
Recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if it was made from raw materials (e.g. precious trees!). As well as saving the trees themselves of course.
Embrace the closed loop process and buy back recycled office paper. You can do this online in seconds!
