what happens To the materials

At the EN15713 and ISO9001 accredited site, your materials are now securely destroyed and completely harmless.  Following the secure shredding the materials are  fed into a large "Mill Sized" baler, churning out bales that weigh between 400kg and 500kg.  Once there is enough to fit on an articulated lorry, the materials are taken to a paper mill, usually in the East Midlands or Lancashire, where they are turned into paper towels and similar products.

TIP: If you do use an office shredder, you cannot recycle the shredded paper afterwards.  paper recycling requires there to be a strand of fibre long enough to reconstitute with other strands and office shredders take the paper down so small it is good for nothing but landfill or to be burnt as Energy For Waste.

how we Transport AND SHRED the materials

Using our methods and sites in compliance with the European Shredding standard EN15713, your materials are kept in our operative's secure custody as they are transported to the secure, GPRS tracked vehicle.  From there, they are transported immediately on the vehicle back to the high security of the EN15713 accredited depots, where they are emptied out, ready for immediate secure shredding by a static industrial shredder capable of processing up to 6 tonnes per hour rendering your materials completely safe.

TIP: Sometimes a document shredding company will tell you the only way to shred is Onsite  WE OFFER BOTH, so we will be able to advise you in a professional and balanced way, which is the best method for you to use.  From a security perspective and from a cost perspective.
