What are Document Shredding Services?

And that’s why you have been searching online for document shredding services and found yourself here.
Document shredding services are designed to help companies and households safely destroy their archive documents. Conforming to BS EN 15713 legislation all documents would be safely and securely destroyed so that they are no longer legible.
There are two main types of document shredding services available:
One-Off Document Shredding Services
A one-off document shredding service is ideal for smaller companies that only need to destroy confidential waste every once in a while. Once a year clear out, an office relocation or just a ‘spring clean’.
Whether you have just 1 box, 5 boxes or you have been a hoarder and have 15+ boxes, Shredco UK will destroy your documents and provide you with a certificate of destruction as proof conforming to BS EN 15713 legislation.

Regular Document Shredding Services
A regular document shredding service is perfect for larger companies with more employees. Shredco UK will provide a lockable container free of charge to locate in the centre of the office. This container is used to place all unwanted documents with sensitive information.
At regular intervals, Shredco UK will collect and destroy the confidential waste. Only 1 staff member and Shredco UK will have access to the container with a lockable key. Depending on the amount of waste generated, Shredco UK can schedule weekly, bi-weekly or monthly site visits. After each visit a certificate of destruction will be given for your records conforming to BS EN 15713 legislation.

What documents should you be shredding?
Anything that has sensitive information on such as a name, telephone number or address should be destroyed when no longer needed. If any information gets into the wrong hands it can be used to open bank accounts, obtain credit cards, order goods to taking over existing bank accounts or take out mobile phone contracts.
Here’s a list of some of the most common documents your must shred and destroy:
- Invoices, receipts & purchase orders
- Bank statements
- Utility bills
- Insurance policy documents
- Employee records
- Email print outs
Identity theft and fraud
In the wrong hands, it is easy for fraudsters to use details about you, your staff or customers for their own rewards. According to a report by Experian in 2016, fraud costs the UK economy £193 billion each year. This equates to more than £6,000 lost per second every day. Fraudsters only need 3 pieces of information to steal an identity and access accounts, take out financial loans or credit cards. All fraudsters need is a name, address and date of birth. That’s why document shredding is important to ensure all information is safely destroyed.
