Choosing to shred your documents with us also reduces your carbon footprint. All records are securely shredded, pulped and recycled to BS EN 15713 standard.

Confidential Shredding Services

Your documents are shredded in our highly secure environment, ensuring confidentiality is maintained throughout. Destruction certificates are provided as proof of your audits.

Our operations centre is located in London Bridge and is ideal for rapid access to all London based offices. Our clients are welcome to use our audit rooms here. This storage centre is fully accredited with the latest security, fire and data protection standards.

We manage a further two facilities in the Swindon area. All of our facilities are guarded by 24-hour security and video surveillance systems, ensuring that your documents stay confidential and secure, right up until the date they are eventually shredded.

Each 55L shredding bin contains a heavy-duty destruction sack that we can collect upon request or to a schedule of your choosing. All bags are individually sealed with a unique security tag, retrieved to our facilities and shredded in a confidential environment.

Start A Retention Schedule
