Taking steps to securely destroy data in documents and files is something that we have all become accustomed to doing. From on-site paper recycling to taking your unwanted documents to a recycling centre, it’s easy to understand the benefits of ensuring that files and folders are not left laying around - and the security risks of not doing so. But what about electronic media - why is it just as vital to ensure that you take the same precautions?
Welcome to Shred-on-Site, the UK’s leading independent paper shredding and on-site document destruction company.
We specialise in secure, confidential document shredding services. As principle members of the BSIA we've built a reputation for exceptional customer service, delivering unrivalled value for money through our highly trained personnel and state of the art technology. We carry out secure paper shredding and document destruction services across a wide range of industries from small SMEs and private households through to large blue-chip organisations.

Our three processing facilities in London, Manchester and Bicester support branch offices nationwide.
Paper currently makes up around 20% of all the waste that we throw away in the UK each year. It’s a resource that we use widely, from offices to hospitals and schools and - despite the fact that there are lots of alternative options available for disposal - much of the paper waste we generate still ends up in landfill. Given the urgency that exists to switch to a more sustainable way of living and working, what can be done about it?
Working with an on-site shredding provider that is BS EN 15713 certified is an essential part of ensuring that you are getting a reliable service that will keep your business compliant. This is a standard that relates to both service delivery and customer satisfaction and provides reassurance that you’re getting the right level of support where the destruction of confidential information is concerned.
