Secure Shredding Services for Government & Public Services

When you are entrusted by the public to provide government services, you are entrusted to do everything you can to protect the confidentiality of their private information. And as a government organisation, there are legislation and regulations, practices and procedures to help ensure the security of your information.

We can help take your privacy protection to the next level with world-class document and hard drive destruction services, and workplace privacy policies designed to help you and your colleagues keep private information out of the wrong hands.

With more than 500,000 customers, 19 countries, and 170 locations world-wide, Shred-it is the best-practice in information security and workplace privacy for government and government-funded organisations.

Wherever you do business, you’ll find Shred-it nearby.
