Confidential Waste Disposal Norwich

  • Sensitive information can be used to cause people harm if it falls into the wrong hands. Names, addresses, bank statements and other confidential information can be used for the purposes of identity theft.
  • People with the know-how can still access files that have supposedly been deleted, erased or reformatted from hard drives. Secure shredding protects you from identity theft and ensures that your personal data is not held to ransom.
  • A shredding company like Datashredders can destroy huge quantities of material in minutes, saving you from the laborious process of using an office shredder. We can shred everything together, meaning that you don’t need to pre-sort paper, plastic, electronics, staples or plastic wallets. We will provide you with a woven polypropylene sack or secure waste container to put all your materials in for collection. Once this has been shredded, it will be sorted for recycling and re-use.
  • We will issue you with an individually numbered Certificate of Destruction that details the weight of documentation shredded and the date and address of collection. It confirms that we dispose of your confidential data to European Standards BN EN15713.

Norwich Secure Shredding Products & Services

On-Site Paper Shredding Norwich

Our on-site shredding services set us apart from our competitors. Most shredding companies can’t offer an on-site shredding service because it requires a mobile shredding vehicle. Datashredders uses high-technology Linder Micromat shredding machines.

We’ll bring our mobile shredders to your premises so that you can watch as we tip your files into the machine and shred them. This way you can be certain that your sensitive information never touches unauthorised hands.

Norwich Off-Site Document Shredding

Off-site shredding is carried out at our purpose-built shredding facility. Each of our depots are monitored by 24-hour CCTV and surrounded by high perimeter fencing to maintain security.

Off-site shredding is our most cost-effective service because we can shred in bulk.

Your sensitive documents will then be transported straight to our secure facility to be destroyed in a single day.

Commercial businesses have legal obligations to staff and clients to securely dispose of confidential data. Failure to comply with data protection laws can have severe consequences, such as large fines and a damaged reputation.

If your home office has personal bills, bank statements or sensitive records that need destroying, we can come straight to your doorstep with our mobile shredding service.

One-Off Shredding Services Norwich

Datashredders is able to offer a one-off clearance service to meet the shredding needs of all customers, both domestic and commercial. This package is for customers who don’t require regular destruction services or have a cluttered space that needs clearing. Your mess becomes our responsibility.

We will make your life simple by coming to your premises and shredding everything that can be shredded and removing whatever else we can for repurposing or recycling. All you need to do is make sure that there is nothing in the room that you want to save!

Norwich Hybrid Shredding Services

At the onset of COVID-19, society had to adapt to a different way of working. Hybrid working has sometimes made it necessary to store confidential business information in the homes of employees. Confidential waste management policies and practices have adapted to ensure that waste paper and media located off-site can still be disposed of securely.

Datashredders offers two options for businesses with hybrid workers. The first involves sacks being delivered to the employee’s house for them to fill and deliver to the office; we will then collect them for destruction along with office waste. The other involves the collection of confidential paperwork from your company’s offices and a secondary collection from the employee’s house.

About Norwich

Lying about 100 miles north-east of London and 20 miles west of the coast at Great Yarmouth, Norwich is the largest city in East Anglia and a district of Norfolk, England. It is the county town of Norfolk and the seat of the See of Norwich (an episcopal see being a bishop’s ecclesiastical jurisdiction). As such, the town has one of the country’s largest medieval cathedrals.

Norwich is perhaps one of the most complete medieval cities in the United Kingdom. Many historic medieval features still exist there, such as Elm Hill, St. Andrew’s Hall and Blackfriar’s Hall, Dragon Hall, The Guildhall and Norwich Castle. In 2012, the city was designated England’s first UNESCO City of Literature.

The Norwich area was originally the heartland of Boudica’s Iceni tribe, with the Iceni capital located 5 miles away, near Caistor St. Edmund. Anglo-Saxon settlements later sprung up in Norfolk and East Anglia in the 5th – 7th centuries and the town derives its name from one of these; Northwic (‘North Farm’).
