How long does it take before you collect once we’ve contacted you?
We aim to collect within 5 days. If you need a collection, please request it and we’ll accommodate.
Can you collect boxes as well?
Yes, if you already have confidential material in boxes we will collect those rather than you having to decant in to our sacks.
What happens to the paper once it’s been shredded?
After the paper has been securely shredded, the material is baled for transport and recycled into paper products.
Can envelopes with plastic windows be shredded?
Yes, paper mills will screen for small pieces of plastic during the manufacturing process and remove these before recycling the shredded paper into a new product.
