The Benefits of Shredding Office Documents

With the current problems relating to the fly-tipping of waste, including shredded documents from companies and larger organisations in Staffordshire this year, we thought it would be a good time to reiterate how Box-It North Midlands can help small and medium sized businesses, and local organisations, with their waste disposal in the form of a shredding service.

Protect Your Information – Certain documents that you have kept in your workplace will contain personal information. This can include employee health and financial records, customer credit card details and other types of information. After a certain time you are legally obliged to securely dispose of them as part of data privacy laws. Shredding your business documents that are no longer needed is the best way to ensure your compliance with the law. The Information Commissioners Office has a wealth of useful information on document retention for businesses and is worth visiting on a regular basis.

Help the Environment – With every shredding client we work with, Box-It North Midlands ensures that the end product is recycled. We like to do our bit for the environment and want to inspire our customers to do the same. Set up a regular shredding service for your business documents and you have taken another step in the process of going green as a company.

Our team is happy to visit your place of work to collect your confidential documents for safe disposal back at our highly secure site. This can be on a regular basis or just occasionally when your need arises.

If you’d like to know more about our shredding service contact Box-It North Midlands today. We also work closely with experts on data protection both physical and digital who can offer advice and help for your business. We look forward to your call.
