Shredding


A flexible confidential paper shredding service that’s European Standards and Data Protection Act compliant and ISO Quality Accredited. All backed up by 30 years’ experience and a dedicated personal service.
 
Identity theft costs the UK £1.7bn every year. Worryingly, most of the information that funds it is obtained through hard copy paper sources which are disposed of in a relaxed manner by businesses. 
 
Every business has a duty to protect the information they hold about their customers and employees under the Data Protection Act 1998. A serious breach can result in a fine of up to half a million pounds. So making sure confidential or sensitive documents are properly destroyed – in accordance with current legislation - is crucial. Read on for more information about how our confidential shredding service can help you avoid costly and damaging issues or get in touch to arrange your free consultation and we’ll come up with a programme to suit your specific needs.
