In the digital age in which we live the focus often seems to be on virtual information and data, protecting it and securing it. And, while that certainly plays an important role in ensuring compliant and customer friendly business practices, it’s not the only consideration. We still use large volumes of paper in our daily lives – and particularly in the workplace – which means that paper shredding still has a key role to play for a number of reasons:
Welcome to Shred-on-Site, the UK’s leading independent paper shredding and on-site document destruction company.
We specialise in secure, confidential document shredding services. As principle members of the BSIA we've built a reputation for exceptional customer service, delivering unrivalled value for money through our highly trained personnel and state of the art technology. We carry out secure paper shredding and document destruction services across a wide range of industries from small SMEs and private households through to large blue-chip organisations. No job is too big or too small. We serve local authorities and government departments including NHS trusts, both regionally and throughout the UK. Our three processing facilities in London, Manchester and Bicester support branch offices nationwide.
We are entering an era of socially responsible business that requires much more investment in ethical values and environmental considerations. Customer trust has been shaken in recent years by scandals that have revealed that some of the most “trusted” brands are actually failing their customers in terms of keeping their promises. So, it’s more important than ever before for businesses to be able to shore up consumer trust – and paper shredding is one very easy way to do it.
Despite the move towards using computers and technology at work on a daily basis, on average, any individual that has a desk-based job uses around 10,000 sheets of paper per annum. This can cover anything from printed reports or employee performance reviews, but the majority of it ends up being discarded ready for recycling, or simply thrown in the bin after use, however this poses serious security concerns under the new GDPR which comes into action in May 2018.
