Secure Waste Containers

Our shredding bins and secure waste containers ensure you don’t have to leave all of your surplus documentation lying around while you’re waiting for Datashredders’ mobile paper shredding services to call. We’re able to provide a number of different waste container types, ensuring you have the right size and style container for your needs.

How do I get a secure waste container?

If you choose a recurring scheduled shredding service from us, you’ll be given the option to choose one of the following, which will be delivered to your premises by one of our shredding operatives.

Shredding Bags

Nylon shredding sacks

Our sturdy nylon shredding sacks are a perfect option if you’re short on space for a permanent console. These are supplied with security ties, ensuring once the sack is full the confidential waste is inaccessible until its collection.


Lockable shredding wheelie bins

Our wheelie bins provide a secure, high-capacity destination for your confidential waste. Choose from three sizes:

120-litre lockable shredding wheelie bin
H95cm x W50cm x D55cm; approx. capacity 45-50kg shredding

140-litre lockable shredding wheelie bin
H107cm x W50cm x D55cm; approx. capacity 55-60kg shredding

240-litre lockable shredding wheelie bin
H108cm x W60cm x D75cm; approx. capacity 75-85kg shredding

Lockable Office Consoles

Office-style shredding cabinets

If you need a shredding console that fits in slightly better with the décor of an office, these key-lockable 50cm x 50cm x 90cm shredding cabinets are perfect. Staff simply slide their confidential paper waste into the slot at the top of the console into a woven polypropylene sack (easily changed once the console becomes full). Our office-style cabinets are available in grey and beech varieties.

Non-containered waste?

Don’t worry if you’ve got a large amount of shredding that’s not in your waste container – perhaps in an archive that’s inconvenient to access. Just let us know and your shredding expert will be happy to fetch it and shred it along with the rest of your confidential documents.

Do I need different containers for different types of shredding?

With a Datashredders waste container, there’s no need to sort your waste paper – you can store any confidential or non-confidential paper based items, including diaries, books, cardboard folders – literally anything made from paper or card.

We can also collect other items that may need shredding securely including media, hard drives, mobile phones, plastics, x-rays and uniforms.

What happens when you come to collect the shredding?

When we visit your premises to collect the shredding from your waste container, you needn’t lift a finger – just direct us to your container and we’ll do the rest.
