Confidential Paper Shredding Service in Gloucestershire by Office 5 Star
Safeguard your vulnerable information with our secure on-site or off-site low-cost paper shredding service.
All companies store information which could be a huge risk to your business if in the wrong hands and with individuals working from home now there is more at risk.
With PCI compliance becoming tougher and GDPR coming into effect 25th May 2018, identity theft in the UK costs £1.7bn and increasing year on year, it has never been so vital to protect and secure information. The Information Commisioner's Office has the power to issue penalties up to £500,000 if a business is found in breach of the Data Protection Act.
Many local Councils don't offer a commercial waste disposal service any more, including the Forest of Dean District Council.
And as a business, you are NOT permitted to either take your office waste to the local tip or to put it into your residential waste.
We are based in the Forest of Dean near Gloucester and this service is available to our local customers in Chepstow, Lydney, Coleford, Cinderford, Monmouth, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Ross on Wye as well as our more remote customers located elsewhere in mainland UK.
It's a Win Win situation
We can shred, bale and ensure that your shredded paper is recycled back into products such as kitchen paper and facial tissues.
We will work with you to implement the most suitable and cost effective shredding solution for your office. We can supply different sized consoles or wheelie bins with a lock and slot to collect your waste paper in. Alternatively we can supply secure plastic sacks which can be ordered along with your office supplies and you dont even have to remove the staples or paperclips!
All shredding is undertaken by our partner who is an accredited member of the British Security Industry Association and fully compliant to BS EN 15713:2009.
You will be issued with a certificate of destruction.
On Site and Off-Site Shredding
Choosing between on-site or off-site usually comes down to the quantity you have to shred and the confidentiality of the information.
On-site shredding will mean that a heavy duty mobile shredding truck will come to your premises and actually shred the waste at your premises. (... so cool ! )
Off-site shredding will mean that we will collect your waste from your premises at your desired time schedule and we will safely transport them to one of our secure shredding facilities with a robust audit trail.
For both options you will be issued with a destruction certificate for your records.
Good for the environment
Once your documents have been shredded, they will be taken to a secure recycling facility where the paper is then baled and sent for recycling.
For just £89.99 + vat we will supply you with 15 empty (15kg) sacks for you to fill, then we will collect at your convenience! It's that simple and it really will save you time, money and hassle. You dont even need to remove any staples or paperclips!
Very good value when you consider : -
It would take around an hour of your staff's time to shred a bag full of paper with a general office shredder
15kg of paper is equivilent to approximately 2500 sheets /1 box of A4 Copier Paper
No need to waste time removing staples
We will take away the shredded paper and recycle it at no extra cost to you. This method would also significantly reduce any employee related security breach.
We will issue you with a certificate of destruction helping you to comply with GDPR
Shredding is fully compliant with BS EN 15713:2009
