An overview of what we do

Commercial Shredding

Scheduled Regular Collection Service

Our scheduled regular collection service is ideal for businesses that require a document destruction service on a regular basis. We’ll work with you to determine the frequency of collections to best suit your needs. We will then guarantee that your collections are made on time.

On Request Service

Designed to provide a secure one-off shredding service tailored to your specific needs, whether you have a large volume of archived files and confidential documents, or just a few boxes. We can also provide you with waste sacks or secure containers to help you collate your documents before we collect.

Confidential Data

We can provide you with a secure, lockable Shredding Cabinet for all your confidential waste, such as bills, contracts and employee info.

Domestic Shredding

Are you concerned about identity theft? A lack of space to store old bills, statements and other paperwork? How often do you throw confidential paperwork away? The answer is most of us do it all the time.

To keep you and your family safe, you should always shred confidential material, and this is where Shred Direct can help.

We offer a comprehensive service which includes domestic shredding. Your old paper documents, and other media, such as CDs, debit/credit cards and computer hard drives, will be securely destroyed and shredded for your total piece of mind.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

Shred Direct provides comprehensive Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) destruction and recycling services. Confidential data that is stored on hard drives, flash drives (memory sticks) and optical discs (CDs & DVDs) is a prime target for data thieves. Simply deleting old files or even reformatting discs is unfortunately not enough to guarantee that data will be properly wiped. We can guarantee it!

Document Security

Businesses, organisations and individuals have legal responsibilities to safeguard the privacy of anyone whose information they hold on a database or printed files. It is also a requirement that when these records are no longer needed they are destroyed in a safe and secure manner. Our certificated destruction service can form part of your company compliance with the Data Protection Act and GDPR.

Waste Management Services

We provide total waste management services for our clients. 

This service can range from general waste disposal to mixed recycling, fluorescent tube disposal and WEEE.

By working with industry partners we can provide a one stop shop for our customers – please get in touch and we’d be delighted to discuss your waste management requirements.

Recycling Services

Shred Direct is an environmentally friendly company and all of our shredded paper is sent to paper mills for recycling. This normally returns as tissue paper. 

We aim to sent as little waste to landfil as possible. We have also made steps over recent years to use more environmentally friendly materials such as reusable or paper collection bags instead of disposable plastic bags.

Waste & Recycling Products

We don’t just collect and recycle waste. We can provide you with a range of products that will help with the day to day waste management within your business, including:

Office Paper Recycling Containers

Businesses generate other paper waste that is not confidential, but needs to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Our office paper recycling containers provide the ideal solution for non-confidential paper waste.

Confidential Waste Bags

For added security we provide secure confidential waste bags and ties for all your confidential documents. Made of woven polypropylene they are durable, easy to store, and are supplied free of charge to our customers.

Confidential Waste Containers

Shred Direct can supply a varied range of high quality lockable confidential waste containers and wheelie-bins. 

Other Destruction Services

Shred Direct Ltd also provide a secure destruction service for computer storage media, CDs, tapes, video tapes, DVDs, Bluray discs and USB media storage devices.

This is part of our Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) destruction and recycling service.
