Information accumulates every day with each printout and copy we make. Due to the sheer volume, most organisations no longer find it effective to shred using normal office shredders. Anyone that has one knows, office shredders are slow and cumbersome to use. As a result companies are left exposed as staff casually discard documents in the closest rubbish bin.

Our industrial destruction equipment provides us the capability to destroy in ten minutes what could take up to ten hours using conventional office shredders. We ensure that all confidential material stays exactly that – confidential.

So, what should and should not be shredded? Any information that may provide competitive or destructive power to an individual and/or competitor or that can be used to commit fraud must be securely destroyed. Documents obviously vary by industry however documents that should be destroyed include: Internal Memo’s, Quotations, Financial Records, Employee Records, Client Files, Correspondence, Payroll Records, Medical Records, Legal Records, Letterheads, Business cards, any documents with Signatures, etc.
