It’s increasingly common for businesses to be aware of the different impacts they are having on the world around them, whether this is environmental, financial or social. Businesses waste huge volumes of recyclable waste every year, so as companies reduce their waste and begin to realise their corporate social responsibility to recycle paper waste, then this can create a large reduction in unnecessary waste.
In-house recycling policies
Part of recycling paper is encouraging your staff to take responsibility in regards to recycling as much as possible. Provide secure lockable capsules to store paper that is no longer needed – this means that employees are increasingly likely to keep their desks clear, and reduce the risk of confidential information being left out.
Workplace data security risks
Workplace data security is a risk as well as facing outside threats. Often data breaches occur in-house when different staff members should be restricted to different levels of information depending on their role, but this is compromised. It’s important to provide a secure storage solution to reduce the risks internally, which is why Shred-on-Site offers multiple secure storage solutions to meet a variety of needs.
Shredding and recycling combined
Recycling is not something that companies need to worry about organising uniquely within the company. In fact, recycling can cause security risks if confidential documents are simply put into unsecured recycling bins without being shredded, as this means that this data is able to be accessed and retrieved by unauthorised parties.
Secure recycling options
Within your security policy, there is room to ensure that your business is also recycling all that you can. On-site shredding providers like Shred-on-Site will take away shredded waste to be compacted and recycled at a designated recycling plant. This helps businesses to make sure that they are being as green as possible whilst providing the most secure way of getting rid of confidential paper waste.
