Frequently Asked Questions

We follow a six-step security protocol to help keep confidential information safe every step of the way. We require a barcode scan at every touchpoint to track our chain of custody and our employees have Certified Information Security Professional designations. This means that they undergo rigorous training to learn how to protect confidential information.

Our fleets are GPS-tracked so we know where your documents are, and we lock our containers and trucks to keep information safe in transit. Our secure, monitored facilities help protect your information before it’s destroyed. When the process is finished, we provide customers a Certificate of Destruction to guarantee that we destroyed and recycled your documents.

Another option is that Shred-it installs locked consoles in your facility. All documents that need to be destroyed are deposited in them. Only a Shred-it security-screened expert removes your documents from the locked consoles. Your documents are destroyed at a secure location or on site at your premises, depending on your requirements. For each service, we provide you with an official Certificate of Destruction for your records, as proof your documents were securely destroyed.

For some customers, an on-site shredding service is a preferred option. Whether it’s because of corporate policy or for the peace of mind that comes with seeing confidential documents destroyed in-person, Shred-it offers an on-site mobile shredding service.

Here’s what you can expect from our mobile shredding services:

  • Our Customer Security Representative comes to your location
  • We empty your secure, locked consoles and deliver their contents to our mobile shredding truck waiting on-site
  • All documents are shredded while the truck is on-site
  • You receive a Certificate of Destruction verifying your confidential documents have been securely destroyed
  • Far more effective, and virtually impossible to reconstitute, is the crosscut shredder used by professional information destruction organisations to reduce confidential materials to fine pieces of confetti. Shredded paper is then compacted under massive pressure into solid bales ready for transportation to a recycler.

    All shredded paper is recycled, baled and shipped to trusted recycler partners, alongside shredded digital media, too. The shredded paper is turned into consumer paper products for a second life. As a result, millions of trees are saved every year.

    There are many hidden costs of using an office shredder. (Finance, reputation damage). Shred-it experts recommend outsourcing document shredding to avoid data breach risks, human errors, and minimize cost and time.

    While using an office shredder may seem like a simple solution for disposing of confidential documents, there are several pitfalls. Time spent shredding can distract employees from more important tasks and can quickly add up to hundreds of pounds in labour costs. Plus, most office shredders do not utilise cross-cut shredding technology, meaning documents are shredded into long strips which can be easily reassembled.

    Partnering with a secure document destruction company gives you peace of mind that your confidential information will not fall into the wrong hands.

    The GDPR stands for The General Data Protection Regulation, providing new legal requirements for how organisations collect and store the sensitive data of people in the EU.

    Organisations must destroy sensitive information when it is no longer needed. Shredding confidential documents is one of the Information Commissioner’s Office recommended measures for securing personal data.

    Shred-it’s full suite of secure shredding services can help your organisation to remain compliant with the GDPR. Our Data Security Survey is a crucial first step to ensuring vulnerable areas of your business are identified and our certificate of destruction is a key asset to proof of the document's destruction.
