Most organisations are aware of the risks associated with not destroying confidential information, and many have a shredding policy in place to mitigate this risk. Handling this in-house can often cause more problems than removing them, especially when there are issues with the security of shredding. It can take time to shred all of your documents in-house, and it’s almost always insufficient to make sure that your business is fully compliant with all data protection legislation.

A growing number of businesses are beginning to go green after customers are beginning to expect them to take responsibility for saving the planet. Many companies are at least starting to consider more seriously the environmental impact that they are having on the Earth and how this can be reduced. Since over 12.5 million tonnes of paper is used annually within the UK alone, and less than 70% is recycled, it’s important for each of us to do what we can to reduce paper waste. An easy way for businesses to do this is to implement a paper shredding policy.
As with any sector, protecting customer data and complete confidentiality are essential. Many large companies process a huge volume of data over a period of time, increasing the amount stored in-house and filed. This also means that a large amount of paper containing confidential legal information can accumulate as data is no longer relevant, and the records are no longer required.
