We can supply wooden cabinets, 120-1100 litre lockable wheeled containers, simple "bag and tag" systems, collection by archive box, collections on pallets or provision of our closed, lockable, high volume containers of 23 cubic-yard to 35 cubic-yard capacity. Regardless of the system we develop for you, we promise that your confidential documents will never, EVER come back to bite you!

YYou can be confident that the material will be securely collected, shredded and responsibly recycled when the container requires emptying. We can collect either on request or on a fixed schedule to suit your own requirements and we can provide a range of collection service levels to suit your own offices, factories or warehouses.

Our collection service is performed by uniformed staff who carry photographic ID and have been security vetted to BS7858 standards. Collections and the shredding process follows a strict procedure, allowing a full audit trail to the requirements of EN15713 which ensures your material is destroyed quickly, securely and diligently.
