Why use our Cambridge confidential waste service?

  • Safeguard yourself against identity theft and fraud by using a professional confidential waste disposal service.
  • Bank statements and other documents with your address, full name and personal details can easily fall into the wrong hands if not disposed of responsibly.
  • Likewise, information that has been deleted or wiped from a hard drive can still be vulnerable to people with the right computer skills.
  • Ensure that your sensitive data is rendered unrecoverable by reducing it to literal shreds. You do not even need to sort through your material; paperclips, plastic wallets and electronics can be destroyed along with paper documents.
  • Our high-capacity shredders can destroy vast quantities of confidential waste in a fraction of the time an office shredder might take to reduce just a handful of documents.
  • Place your confidential waste into one of our provided polypropylene sacks or secure waste containers. We’ll collect it, shred it, and provide you with an individually numbered Certificate of Destruction to confirm that your data has been destroyed to European Information Destruction Standards (BS EN 15713:2009).
