We offer shredding services for large and small businesses whether they operate from a small office or industrial premises or large office buildings or manufacturing plants.
Any business that keeps records of company finances, staff details, estimates, quotations or proposals, invoices, customer and supplier details, bank statements and any other sensitive data. Actually the vast majority of businesses and organisations in the UK should shred their data.
Our clients come from a wide variety of small and large businesses belonging to all industry sectors including healthcare, local government, legal, financial, marketing and travel.
Our heavy duty shredders and shredding trucks can shred almost anything whether made from paper, metal, plastic or textile. These include:
Printed promotional material (brochures, flyers, leaflets), digital storage devices (hard drives, flash drives, CDs, DVDs, USBs), customer and supplier databases, printed letters and emails, financial documents (invoices, accounts, budgets, bills, receipts, statements), marketing plans, medical and dental records and notes, employee application forms, personnel records, ID cards/badges, CCTV tapes and CDs, uniforms and branded personal protective equipment (PPE), headed paper, business cards, student records, mobile phones.
Basically any printed material or digital device which contains confidential information such as name, address and phone number should be shredded. Also anything that can be used for identification and security such as uniforms, ID badges and branded merchandise.
We supply office style lockable waste cabinets/consoles as well as lockable wheelie bins for storage of confidential documents and material. For clearouts we can provide shredding bags. All our storage containers are provided free of charge.
When it comes to location, there are two kinds of shredding:
Our mobile shredding trucks can visit and carry out shredding of your confidential materials at your business premises. This can be done at predetermined, scheduled times or on an ad hoc basis. You can witness the destruction of your materials and will be issued with a certificate of destruction/recycling on completion.
Our mobile shredding trucks can visit your business premises and transport your confidential materials to our shredding depot in Glasgow. It will be transported in our secure collection vehicles then shredded and baled for recycling on the same day. Our customers are welcome to visit our depot to witness the shredding process and will be issued with a certificate of destruction/recycling on completion.

It depends on how much sensitive data is produced and stored by your business but we can visit your premises as often as required either to a predetermined schedule (weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly or annually) which is a great way of minimising risk or on an ad hoc basis.
All the material we shred is baled by us at our Glasgow shredding depot and delivered directly to UK paper mills for recycling.
