Confidential waste consists of personal, financial, or legal information in the form of letters and other document hard copies or sensitive information that is digitally stored on computer hard drives and electronic devices. Business data such as financial plans, copyright information and shareholder details are also considered to be the intellectual property of an organisation and therefor confidential to the business.
Confidential waste shredding services are frequently used by businesses and individuals to safely and securely dispose of sensitive information to protect company data and personal details in accordance with GDPR regulations. A strict code of conduct applies to confidential waste disposal under the Data Protection Act to safeguard against data being lost or stolen. Business can meet their legal objectives for secure confidential waste disposal by being aware of the risks involved and using a licensed waste carrier to ensure that all confidential waste is disposed of properly.
If you require a Waste Collection, simply give us a call or send an email via our contact form. Ideally we would need a breakdown or inventory of what materials you have. Once we have received the inventory we will be able to provide you with a price for the collection and disposal of your waste.

While we seek to keep hard drives intact where possible so they can be reused, we shred hard drives where required by GDPR laws affecting businesses, or by individuals who need a higher level of protection for their personal data.
Server hard drives and hard drives from company PCs, laptop computers and handheld devices can all be shredded using state of the art machinery, which allows computer chipsets to be separated from the plastic housing and shredded so that individual components and precious metals can be retrieved and sent to a materials recovery facility (MRF). We also supply inventory reports for computers that have been transported in bulk, and consignment notes to show where hard drives have been transported for processing.
For individuals seeking to protect their personal data we offer hard drive wiping and paper shredding services for our residential and commercial clients at competitive prices, securing your personal data at every stage of the waste journey. As an environmentally conscious waste carrier, we transport confidential waste to secure recycling facilities after it has been shredded to a high standard to protect your personal information.

Storing confidential documents before collection presents a risk to employees within an organisation and requires a secure procedure to be followed by all staff on site to avoid a breach in data. We make the process straightforward and secure by providing lockable confidential waste bins and secure shredding consoles to businesses, significantly reducing the risk of sensitive documents being accidentally leaked or shared while awaiting collection. We also provide lockable wheelie bins for whole paper documents, along with recyclable tamper proof sacks to provide an extra level of security.
