Learn more about Confidential Waste in England
All contractors must be vetted under a specialist security screening beforehand to ensure they are compliant to quality, environmental and security standards to ensure maximum security whilst the documentation is being cleared, transported, unloaded, destroyed and finally recycled. It is not difficult to get it right however if you get it wrong then the consequences are potentially very difficult to resolve.
Early in your selection process, ask the company about their confidential waste shredding options, their confidential waste collection and disposal process, their certification and affiliations, and how long they have been in business. You may also want to ask if all shredded material is recycled, especially if you have worked hard to encourage recycling within your business. An environmentally-responsible paper shredding company will send all shredded material to a secure recycling partner. Furthermore, it is also important to know how the recycler handles your paper as your documents should be in a secure environment.
