Confidential Shredding Services Quote

Confidential waste services are required for businesses who regularly deal with physical documents. The government, for example, advise keeping tax returns, invoices and other financial documents for six years. This adds up to a big backlog of documents that you need to store. When it comes to disposing of them, you’ll probably be desperate to save space. That’s where confidential waste collection is a must. But these aren’t the only documents that will require confidential document shredding.

Old customer details and company documents will eventually need disposing of. You can find a reliable, cost-effective solution by shopping with Direct365. Our knowledgeable team can advise you of how much shredding you might need, when and how often. For one off services, we can organise the visit and give you an accurate date on when the collection will be and how to prepare. Most customers need regular servicing, and our team can explain the cost and timings when you call. For a reliable commercial shredding service, choose Direct365.

What Types of Commercial Shredding do we Offer?

Regular Shredding - We know many businesses need a frequent paper shredding service. These types of contracts are our bread and butter and allow us to regularly attend your premises and dispose of your confidential waste, giving you the confidence that you’re complying to UK data protection laws. Doing this protects your staff, customers and reputation.

One Off Commercial Shredding - Our confidential document shredding service isn’t just for frequent, regular customers. This service is ideal for those one-off jobs that come around every now and again. Our one-off service allows you to pay for exactly what you need, and leaves you with no commitment to an ongoing commercial shredding contract.

On Site Shredding - Most of our customers are looking for their service to accommodate on site shredding only. While we offer off site collection too, our focus is giving you exactly what you need. For on site shredding, our shredding experts attend your property and unload your confidential waste and take it away directly from your premises. Each vehicle shreds your documents there and then and disposes of that waste quickly and discreetly.

Off Site Shredding - Our off-site shredding service allows staff and employees to have shredding picked up away from the main business premises. Whether this is because of extensive working from home, or other situations, these one off or permanent shredding solutions cover all bases.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of documents can you shred?

All paper documents can be disposed of with our shredding service. Because it is completely confidential, we can accept any types of documents you need disposing of.

Where will my documents be shredded?

You can trust Direct365 to ensure your waste remains confidential, with your waste being shredded and disposed of in a safe, secure and discreet way. Because we use different services across the UK, to ensure you get the best price, the destination of your waste will differ. But each collection will be recycled, reducing your carbon footprint.

What are the requirements for business to keep information?

The one big legal obligation is the UK Data Protection Act, the new version of GDPR in Europe. This states that businesses mustn’t keep customer data without a relevant reason. With both digital and paper records, when it relates to customers, you must have good reason to keep the information. And when you dispose of it, you can't just dispose of it with our general waste service. When it comes to keeping documents such as accounting paperwork, tax returns and invoices you should keep these for six years. Depending on the size of your business, there could be a lot of documents that need shredding each year as they lapse in relevance. That’s how regular collections can help.

How much does commercial shredding cost?

The specific cost of confidential document shredding varies depending on multiple factors. The main two are where your business is and how much you have to dispose of. While we can’t give you an accurate price here, all you need to do is fill out the form towards the top of the page and one of our team will get back to you with a price within 24 hours.
