Document shredding benefits

Improved Security

You can relax with the peace of mind knowing that sensitive and confidential records are properly disposed of, ensuring your business isn't in danger of identity theft or fraud.

Managed Retention Periods

Your records management team can ensure paper documents which have surpassed their retention date are securely shredded; therefore meeting legal regulations and not taking up unnecessary office space.  

Guaranteed Compliance

By outsourcing your document shredding requirement to Storetec, you have the assurance knowing confidential records are destroyed in accordance to British Standards. Furthermore, access to shredding certificates means you can validate claims with evidence that documents have been securely disposed of.


Do you require shredding sacks & boxes?

Do you have tons of confidential paper documents for shredding but nowhere to store them? Storetec supply secure shredding sacks specially designed for confidential waste collection and disposal.

Shredding sacks can be secured with anti-tamper tags to safeguard documentation whilst being transported to Storetec’s production centre for destruction.

We also provide secure triple-walled archive boxes. 

100% Environmentally friendly

Being environmentally friendly is immensely important to us and is a significant part of our CSR policy. We're committed to reducing our environmental impact, which is why 100% of paper documentation shredded is fully recycled in the UK.

Top tip – All paper waste is delivered to a paper mill in the UK where it is recycled into newspaper prints, kitchen and toilet rolls, so you might see your documents again... but you might not be able to recognise them.  

Are you nervous about shredding? 

We always ask new clients, are you absolutely sure that your paper documents have surpassed their retention period? Legislation requires business from any sector to keep their paper records for specific periods of time. Every business has to retain financial records for HMRC, employee records for Companies House, as well as complying with the Public Records Act (FLSA). It can get rather confusing! 

If you're nervous about document shredding, archive storage might be the perfect solution for you. 

With our document storage service, you can rest assured that critical records are accessible for years to come.
