A Greener, more Secure Shredding and Recycling Service
Apparently some 12.5 million tonnes of paper and cardboard are used annually in the UK (source: recycling-guide.org.uk). The same source also states that recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if it was made from raw materials. That is why it is good to know that when your obsolete office paper is shredded with Box-it Central, it is then baled, and taken away to a specialist facility that recycles your office waste into new paper based products such as tissue paper and office paper for example.
Our environmental credentials are regularly assessed in line with ISO 14001, and the impact our business activities have on the environment is something we take very seriously at Box-it Central – recycling wherever possible, planning our journeys, and using renewable energy – our solar panels here at our Leamington Spa document storage and shredding facility being a good example of this.
The problem with general paper and cardboard recycling services is that they are not secure, and this makes them rich pickings for criminals, competitors and prying eyes in general. Using our professional office paper shredding services gives you the peace of mind that your confidential documents are being destroyed in a highly secure environment. This applies to all our shredding services, whether using onsite or offsite confidential document destruction. Your paperwork is also shredded promptly, very often as soon as we take delivery of it – so it is not at risk by being left hanging around.
And, of course, we issue Certificates of Destruction supporting the requirements of the Data Protection regulations, which you keep for your own company records as evidence that a document has been destroyed.
