Environmental advantages of shredding on-site
There are very few disadvantages of shredding on-site.
We think it’s a one of the best ways to ensure your data is kept secure and your business stays compliant with GDPR. There are also many environmental advantages of shredding on-site. We take a look at a few in this blog.
It’s obvious that shredding your confidential waste is more environmentally friendly than throwing it into the waste paper bin. Shredded paper can be repurposed. It can be made into any number of new products, including writing paper, paper towels and toilet tissue.
Did you know paper can be recycled up to 7 times? Paper is one of the world’s most recyclable resources, so it makes sense to prevent this valuable material ending up in landfill. Our on-site shredding service helps you recycle paper. Your paper is baled, taken to a paper mill and recycled, just as we do with our off-site shredding service.
When you choose a professional company to perform shredding on-site, it helps you save more than the environment. Another major benefit is that of saving valuable staff time spent shredding manually in the office. Our mobile shredding trucks can shred up to 40 times faster than a small office shredder. The manpower saved is invaluable. It also prevents you spending money on a separate contractor to recycle your paper. Instead, all paper and even cardboard is bundled together in shredding sacks or consoles to be taken away by the same company.
Shredding on-site means that all your confidential paper waste is fed directly into one of our mobile shredding trucks. This is a vehicle with an industrial shredder contained within it. There’s zero risk of any of your private documents being unlawfully used, as you can watch your materials being shredded right in your workplace car park. By shredding in our mobile trucks, energy is saved as the truck is working in real time. This means fewer trips back to the depot, saving both emissions and energy.
