Giving back to the environment

All the shredded paper we destroy is recycled into tissue products.

Implementing a confidential waste disposal policy and choosing a professional shredding company to deal with your business waste will greatly reduce the chance of a paper-based security breach.

Why is confidential shredding so important?
It Helps Prevent Identity Fraud – Any documents with personal details on them can be used by someone to steal an identity.
