How do I dispose of confidential documents?

The most effective method of confidential document disposal, is making use of a professional secure destruction company. While buying a simple paper shredder for your office may seem like an easy solution, this can become tedious for large volumes of documents.  Furthermore, ‘over-the-counter’ shredders don’t always shred documents to a high standard, meaning your business’s sensitive information may still be retrievable.

When you partner with Shred-X, confidential document disposal becomes as simple as placing documents in a locked container provided to you, and letting our security-vetted professionals take care of the rest.


Can shredded paper be recycled?

Yes, shredded paper can be recycled. Once paper is unrecognisably shredded, Shred-X works with recycling partners to produce by-products from paper recycling, creating a circular paper economy.

What are Shred-X’s document shredding prices?

Costs vary based on several factors including the volume and frequency of shredding you require. For a quote tailored to your business’s needs, please reach out to our friendly team.
