Regular Office On Site Shredding


How does regular business shredding work?

It’s all very simple. We start with a conversation to work out how much paper you actually need shredded and how often. From there, we get a shredding contract across to you and we dispatch some consoles to your offices. These are lockable boxes that elegantly fit in with the rest of your office furniture, in which people will just drop their papers through the console’s slot.

Generally, most companies like to tie in to a fixed schedule (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) or something more specific – and with that information our shredding operators arrive on the pre-appointed date to carry out your paper shredding.

Our vetted and uniformed operators will empty the contents of your console and shred all the confidential papers in our state of the art, mobile shredding trucks. And here’s the best bit: your team needn’t worry about staples or paperclips. Our trucks are fitted with cross cut shredding equipment, which is capable of shredding up to 2 tons per hour! We encourage our customers to watch their confidential shredding being done whilst posting pictures of the truck across various social media channels.

Once your paper shredding has been completed, our operators will provide you with a Declaration of Destruction on the day, and shortly after, we email you a Certificate of Destruction. Please keep these for your files, as it’s a much-required paper trail as proof of compliance with data protection best practices.

That’s all there is to it, it’s just that simple. See our paper shredding pricing and be sure to contact us for a more specific and tailored service. Also read our reviews to see what our other customers say about us.

“Following our organisation’s decision to change the method in which we handle confidential waste, we looked into the various companies that supply on-site shredding and found Total Shred to be the most cost effective and competitive in the current market…”
