Why use our Peterborough confidential waste service?

  • Disposing of your confidential waste responsibly is a way of safeguarding yourself against identity theft and fraud. You do not want your sensitive information falling into the wrong hands.
  • Documents such as bank statements – with your address, full name and other personal details – can easily be fished out of the waste paper bin and used maliciously. People with the right skills can even recover information that has been deleted from a hard drive.
  • This is why it is important to destroy any waste that could compromise your security. Professional shredding companies like Datashredders are the most convenient way to do this. We have the equipment needed to render your data unrecoverable, whether it is in document format or electronic, and we can do it in a fraction of the time of an office shredder.
  • Your documents do not need to be sorted or easily accessible – our friendly staff will take care of everything, minimising time and labour for you. Just put it in one of our provided polypropylene sacks or secure waste containers and we’ll shred it all, no matter the size of the job.
  • We will present you with an individually numbered Certificate of Destruction after each job. This records the weight of documentation shredded and the date and address of collection. It confirms that your sensitive data has been destroyed to European Standards BN EN15713.

Our media destruction service completely destroys electronics, rendering any data unrecoverable. The resulting waste is incinerated at Energy from Waste plants and used to generate electricity for homes across the UK.

Commercial Paper Shredding in Peterborough

Commercial shredding is a legal obligation for any business and a way to keep your business safe. Data protection laws are in place to protect the personal information of clients and employees. Failure to dispose of confidential waste securely could have severe repercussions for your business.

Whether you have a few documents or thousands of pages, we can meet your requirements. We will provide you with a secure container for you to place your material in.

One-Off Shredding in Peterborough

We provide a one-off clearance service to businesses or private individuals with a lot of clutter they’d like cleared. Our staff will come to your premises and shred what can be shredded and recycle what cannot. We will securely destroy your confidential material and remove anything else that you want to get rid of. What may have been causing you nightmares for months is all in a day’s work for us.

Hybrid Work Services in Peterborough

Our hybrid-working solution to shredding came about in recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is designed for businesses with hybrid workers who may take confidential business documents home with them. We developed this service to ensure that company data stored in the homes of employees can still be securely destroyed. Your employees can either drop their confidential waste at the office for us to collect, or we can visit their homes.

About Peterborough

Peterborough is a cathedral city with a population of around 202,110. It was included in Northamptonshire until 1974, when it became a part of Cambridgeshire. The marshy Fenlands to the east of Peterborough lie below sea level. The archaeological site, Flag Fen, shows evidence of Bronze Age and Roman occupation.

The railway in Peterborough is on the major East Coast Main Line between London and Edinburgh and is thought to have contributed to population growth in the area in the 19th century. During that time, Peterborough became an industrial centre for the manufacture of bricks in particular. Today, its economy relies heavily on financial services and distribution.

The Anglo-Saxon settlement of Peterborough, Medeshamstede, was the site of a monastery, which is now Peterborough Cathedral, or the Cathedral Church of St Peter, St Paul and St Andrew; the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Peterborough.
