When shredding archives in boxes, we recommend shredding both the box and its contents, especially if personal information is written on the outside of the box. This saves you the time and hassle of emptying boxes before shredding. It also improves confidentiality and reduces the risk that any sheets of paper with sensitive information may stick to the inside of the box, causing a security breach if found and read when the box is reused.
Our industrial shredders can destroy lever arch files, ring binders and box files. However, these files add to the contamination of our shredded paper and this limits our recycling options. We ask that customers limit contamination to a max level of 3% by weight.
Unfortunately not. Due to security and health & safety reasons only our core shredding personnel are allowed access to our secure shredding unit. We will, however, provide you with a Certificate of Destruction to confirm that your documents have been shredded.
