Secure Shredding and Data Destruction

Fresh Start Waste provide fully compliant, confidential, secure shredding services to businesses of all sizes across the North West. We take your need for privacy extremely seriously, and our service can assist you remain GDPR compliant and reduce the likelihood of potentially damaging data breaches.

How does it work?

We will conduct a free audit where we assess the quantity of paperwork to be shredded

  1. You choose either our regular collection service or our archive clearance service
  2. We arrange a suitable date and time for collection(s) to take place
  3. Fully DBS checked drivers will collect and return to depot where it is shredded and baled to BS EN 15713 standards.
  4. Baled paper continues it’s recycling journey to a UK based paper mill for 100% recycling
  5. You will be provided with a certificate of destruction for your audit trail

Why pay for a shredding service?

Utilising our lockable containers means the moment you have a piece of paper containing confidential information you can pop it in there and it isn’t left lying around until you get time to use your noisy and potentially unreliable office shredder. This minimises the risk of data breaches and expensive data protection fines, which increased in recent years with the introduction of GDPR.

Additionally, you can be certain that your paper-free business working environment is meeting its obligation towards sustainability as 100% of shredded paper is recycled in the UK. The knock-on effect being less trees need to be felled to create new paper and thus your carbon impact as a business is reduced.

How do I store my paperwork before you come and collect?

We provide a choice of storage options including heavy duty sealable bags, secure lockable consoles which match your office furniture or secure lockable wheelie bins which are particularly useful in schools, colleges, universities, and healthcare settings as they can be easily transported around your site.

Can you do a one-off clearance?

Yes, we know archives build up and every so often you just want a clear out. In this instance we follow the approach above and will conduct and audit, agree a price and complete a competitively priced secure shredding clear out on a date and time to suit you.

How much will it cost?

We pride ourselves on offering a competitively priced, fully compliant service. We have every safety measure in place to ensure compliant and secure shredding of all your materials. If you have a quote from another company and would like to discuss we are often able to offer more competitive pricing as we are locally based in the North West as opposed to a national business who may not have vehicles and depots nearby
