Confidential Shredding & Recycling
Amenities Environmental Services provides both off-site and mobile shredding services and a full audit trail so that you can demonstrate full due diligence. We also provide a full range of containers for the secure storage of your confidential waste.
Every organisation has a legal responsibility to dispose of confidential material separately from normal waste.
The Data Protection Act 1998 states that data held by an organisation must be kept secure and disposed of safely, ensuring confidential and personal information is destroyed. Any company that handles personal or private data is legally required to take all reasonable steps to ensure that privacy is protected.
When confidential information needs to be disposed of, the most secure method is the complete destruction of the document.
Document shredding allows companies to destroy documents quickly, efficiently and economically. Once documents have been shredded, they can be recycled with no risk to the company.
Various forms of shredding can be arranged, including video evidence of the destruction taking place.
A certificate of destruction is issued in all cases for customer records. Amenities insures that the entire process it correctly documented with waste transfer notes issued upon collection of your confidential waste.
Shredding & Profipacks
Amenities offers document shredders for every need. They shred paper, credit cards, CDs and DVDs in strips or particles.
This is the safest option for shredding sensitive documents such as bank statements, tax documents or personal information directly at a desk in the workplace.
The data protection legislation requires that organisations shred confidential documents. But a document shredder is a good investment in security also for the home office.
