The end of the summer term is fast approaching for schools, and it’s a popular time for a clear out of that mountain of paperwork from the last year before a new influx of students arrives in autumn. But with increasingly stringent data protection laws, it’s no longer a case of emptying out the unneeded files into a few bin liners with the unclaimed artwork and posters for the school play. Education institutions have to think ahead to plan for secure data destruction that keeps them safely within in the law. Bringing in a professional data shredding company is the stress-free solution many schools and colleges opt for, and now’s the ideal time to schedule a visit in so you get the date you want. Datashredders can book a date and time that’s convenient for you, either in term time or once your students have gone home. To get your visit booked, call the number at the top of this page.
When you start to think about the confidential waste your school or college generates, it can be daunting. Academic records, staff records, old exam papers, admin paperwork, photographs … the list goes on. And it’s not just paperwork you have to consider. Much of your data may be held on digital storage, from old floppy discs to CCTV tapes, and it all needs to be disposed of securely. Storage space is also likely to be at a premium, and that growing mountain of records is likely to be putting a strain on your admin staff.
Datashredders can take care of all your confidential waste, from files and paperwork to old digital storage, with minimal hassle or involvement from your or your staff. And booking your shredding visit now means you can relex, knowing it’s all in hand.
No need to sort
Datashredders can provide secure containers on site that your staff can use to dispose of waste. There’s no need to sort before you dump, just throw it all in, paper, files, staples, paperclips, folders, discs, drives and more, and we’ll do the rest. The containers are locked so that you have no security concerns while they’re on site, and staff have the opportunity to properly clear out their offices and cupboards.
Shredding on or off site
If you need to witness the destruction of your confidential records, our mobile shredding service can come to you. Our uniformed, badged staff will collect waste containers and take them directly to a mobile shredder truck, where they will be shredded on the spot, while you watch if you like! The secure containers are attached directly to the truck, so no one handles your confidential waste after you bin it.
Nothing shreds like our Lindner Micromat! With a throughput of 12 tons per hour, other data shredding companies can’t offer the same level of data security. This one-of-a-kind technology chews up everything from paper to laptops to hard drives to data discs and more – and items aren’t baled until they’re the size of a postage stamp. Not even the most dedicated of data thieves could piece something back together from that!
Take all the stress and hassle out of your end-of-term clear out and be ready to start the new academic year organised and confident in your data security.
