On completion and setup of your new Secure Document Destruction service, one of our dedicated account representative will organise a day for the secure container/s to be delivered to your premises. Each container is securely locked as part of our Quality Assured Procedure and a nominated representative of your organisation will be supplied with a single Shred-X key. The Shred-X secure container remains on your premises until your next scheduled service date.
On Completion of the baling process the bales are ready to be recycled. All the graded bales are sent to paper manufactures as substitute to virgin pulp. Most of Shred-X’s recovered shredded fibre is used to manufacture toilet tissue and other paper washroom products. This process has a very positive effect on the environment, not only saving an enormous amount of energy, reducing landfill and land clearing, but also significantly reduces carbon emissions. Shred-X work with Government certified agencies in providing its customers with comprehensive Environmental Impact Statements on a regular basis detailing the direct importance of the paper fibres recovered from the Shred-X Quality Assured destruction process.
When your Shred-X secure container is scheduled to be serviced, it will be completed by one of our security bonded and police checked Shred-X personnel. On the completion of the service, Shred-X’s procedure is to ensure that a representative from your organisation signs and receives a copy of the service docket prior to leaving your premises.
The Shred-X secure container/s are then transported from your premises in a locked and alarmed secure Shred-X vehicle to our secure destruction facility. Every Shred-X secure vehicle is fitted with a GPS tracking system which is monitored in real time to ensure that your sensitive data is tracked and is safe at all times.
Once the container/s arrive at our secure shredding facility, the destruction process begins. The contents are destroyed and permanently de-identified using our industrial purpose built shredding machines. Each machine can shred a minimum of 6 tonne per hour and all Shred-X facilities are equipped with several industrial shredders, ensuring all data collected is securely destroyed within 24hrs. Once this process has taken place, you are eligible to receive a Certificate of Destruction confirming that your sensitive data has been securely destroyed and permanently de-identified.
On the completion of the shredding process the shredded residual product is conveyed to an automated baler and baled into 1.2 tonne blocks (Equivalent to 250,000 shredded A4 pages). The bales are graded to international specifications under the Shred-X Quality Assured Program. There are over 50 internationally recognised grades ranging from white ledger to mixed office coloured waste. During the baling process a small fraction (typically 3%) of the fibre is removed as “out-throws”. Out-throws consist of plastic, cellophane and other non-soluble adhesives that contaminate the recycling process.
