On the East Coast there’s a lovely holiday village called Haven Reighton Sands Holiday Park. Shredco UK was asked to help destroy all of their historic customer records that they no longer needed.
The old documents and papers had lots of customer information on them. Such as: names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, credit card transaction details etc. All of this information needs to be destroyed safely, securely, and in a timely manner.
The new GDPR rules state that when sensitive information is no longer needed to be stored for purposes such as accounting, it should be destroyed. If you can’t explain why you have such documents with sensitive information, it could land you with a big fine. 
Many holiday visitors stay for a week or two. Once they leave the holiday park, their details have to be destroyed.
Shredco UK agreed to a one off shredding service with an immediate next day site visit for the holiday park. This was at the request of the customer.
Regular Shredding Service
The customer then agreed to have a lockable paper waste container installed in their main office. This secure container was placed in the middle of the office so all employees could easily and quickly place all sensitive paper documents in to the bin.
Shredco UK visits the holiday park to shred documents on a regular basis, every 2 weeks in fact.
