Confidential waste information

Confidential waste information

Disposing of confidential waste in a paper recycling bin or with general waste is not secure.

The Data Protection Act 1998 requires all businesses that hold personal information to have adequate security measures in place. All data should be properly protected at all stages during the process of destruction.

We can provide a confidential waste paper collection service, which guarantees that all the material is securely managed and recycled.

There is a choice of three different containers for the collection of office reports, old invoices, computer records, archived materials, and financial reports, for example.
