What do I need to know about paper shredding services?
There are several decisions you need to make when you decide on your business’s paper shredding services.
It’s not just about how much shredding costs, you need to think about the logistics in your business, the level of security you need, and how it will help you comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
So, here’s what you need to think about when it comes to paper shredding services…
Storing your waste
Bags– For confidential waste in businesses where there is no public access, having a flexible bag service and collection whenever necessary is useful.
Lockable consoles– For businesses where there is public access on site, a large number of employees, or where sensitive data is held (such as in dental surgeries or legal practices), having lockable consoles keeps that data secure.
Deciding on the right paper shredding services
Each business needs to decide which service is right for them. Here are the choices…
One-off shredding– Perfect for the spring clean or annual office clear-out. We understand that our clients need to do this from time to time, so we don’t set a limit in the number of one-off collections.
Regular collections– Ideal for any business or organisation which needs regular assistance to keep on top of confidential paper waste.
Off-site shredding– Your confidential waste is taken in a secure van by vetted staff to our secure shredding facility and shredded to fine particles. You get a certificate of destruction and an audit trail so that you can prove your commitment to GDPR.
On-site shredding – Also known as mobile shredding, this allows businesses with sensitive data to see those documents shredded in front of them on their own site. This is useful for business such as care homes, solicitors, and accountants. You also get a certificate of destruction and an audit trail so that you can also prove your commitment to GDPR.
How you can choose the right paper shredding company

- Look at their current clients. Are they in a similar industry to yours or are they of a similar size with similar challenges? Shredding companies which are already servicing businesses similar to yours will understand the challenges you face.
- Get testimonials from clients. Look at their ratings on independent review sites.
