The Challenge

A stunning 18th century luxury hotel on the outskirts of Leeds, Oulton Hall offers spa and leisure facilities and has two amazing golf courses.

The hotel was looking for paper shredding in Leeds and we were approached by the hotel to advise them on paper shredding all their confidential documents. Over a period of 6 months the hotel had accumulated over 50 boxes of receipts, invoices, accounts and many customer documents. The hotel was concerned about confidentiality and these boxes, now no longer required, needed to be destroyed.

The Solution

We agreed a date and time for one of our shredding trucks to arrive on site to remove the boxes. Upon arrival it was very clear that the 50 boxes, was going to be much greater! It turned out that the hotel had over 400 archive boxes once everything had been counted and boxed up!

This was not a problem for Shredco UK, and all the paper documents were collected and destroyed. With a signed proof of destruction document provided for their GDPR records. The hotel need to keep a record to prove that the documents were securely destroyed by an approved local Leeds shredding company.

The hotel was informed that GDPR asks businesses to take action and destroy paper documents that are not longer required for internal or legal accounting processes. This could be as soon as 1 week when a hotel guest has left the premises.

Moving forward, the hotel agreed to schedule regular shredding collections on a monthly basis. Good for house keeping and staying on top of the archive documents.
