Paper Shredding and Document Destruction Services

Identity Fraud is a significant risk to all individuals, businesses and organisations, simply because we deal with so many pieces of information on a day to day basis.

As fraudsters continue to find new ways to commit crimes, one of the best ways to keep your identity and sensitive information safe is to shred all paper waste and destroy all media data before you throw it away.

To criminals, a discarded bank statement, utility bill or invoice could be enough to allow them to start building up a picture of you, your customers or your business, and eventually can lead to them stealing your identity. Despite increasing awareness of the threat of identity fraud, data breaches are still a frequent occurrence.

There is also a legal obligation for businesses and organisations to protect the personal data of their customers and employees, and to dispose of their sensitive documents and data in a secure way.

If this data is not disposed of correctly, businesses and organisations can face heavy fines from the Information Commissioner's Office of up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act or unlimited fines in case of FSA regulated organisations.

At Business Supplies Direct we can help you stay on the right side of the law by analysing your document and data shredding requirements. This will help us to identify the best shredding solution for you and your organisation.

Once this analysis has been completed, we’ll recommend the best solution for your business or organisation. If in-house shredding is an option, we’ll recommend the best shredder to meet your needs and budget.

While in-house shredding might be an option, it costs valuable time and staff resources, plus there’s the danger that your employees may not be aware of all the compliance issues required by the Data Protection Act.

By using our Secure Shredding service (both scheduled and on-demand) takes the risk and hassle out of proper data destruction.

We offer several different options ranging from a regularly scheduled service to on-demand purges, various secure container selections and tailored service schedules.

Crosscut shredding technology turns sensitive paperwork into confetti-sized pieces and 100% of all paper collected through our Secure Shredding Service is recycled, preventing 1000’s of tonnes of paper from going to landfill.
