Benefits of Secure Shredding

  • With mounting costs for the disposal of waste and the Government's commitment to raising landfill tax, you can ensure cost savings.
  • Breaches of confidentiality are avoided.  Any organisation not complying with the Data Protection Act 1998 may result in criminal prosecution and a maximum penalty of £5,000 plus costs in a Magistrates' Court or an unlimited fine in the Crown Court.
  • Help the environment by selecting secure shredding over landfill.  The shredded material goes directly to paper recycling facilities where it is baled and delivered to paper recycling mills.
