How do you dispose of confidential documents and information?
Every organisation, no matter how small its administration, creates confidential information in hard copy and the preferred way to dispose of it is often to use the office shredder..
If you’re administering any type of business and you’re not sure if you need a paper shredding service – look for yourself. Have a rummage through your general waste or recycling bins at the end of a busy working day. We are sure that you will find sensitive material in there that should have been shredded.
Once you’ve established that you need a document destruction process in place, the next step is to decide on the scale.
- Small office shredders have their uses when volumes are very low but when paper shredding requirements escalate they just can’t cope.
- To ensure 100% compliance with Data Protection legislation keep it simple – call Paper Shredding Services and get all your sensitive material professionally shredded on-site.
- We also recycle 100% of what we shred so you can be sure your doing your bit for the environment too.
