uniform & clothing destruction
As with product destruction, the Shred-X uniform & clothing shredding solution is designed to protect your brand, and keep proprietary company material out of public circulation. Obsolete uniforms and branded clothing should be kept out of the general waste stream to prevent unauthorised use of these materials bearing your company brand and associated reputation.
Furthermore, if your company has undergone a rebrand, outdated uniforms can dilute expensive marketing strategies. Shred-X guarantees the complete destruction of clothing with our industrial-grade shredders, which are designed to destroy large quantities of material. Shred-X regularly destroy:
- Police & emergency service uniforms
- Security firm uniforms
- Corporate logo uniforms
- Designer branded clothing
- Counterfeit fashion items
Many clothing distributors and designers throughout Australia rely on Shred-X to destroy counterfeit products, unapproved samples and excess shipments, for the guaranteed security and convenience of our solution. Federal Police-cleared and security vetted personnel will collect and transport the materials requiring destruction, in an alarmed and GPS-tracked vehicle to the nearest Shred-X facility. Our facilities are locked, alarmed and under 24-hour HD CCTV surveillance. Once the materials are securely shredded, a Certificate of Destruction is provided as confirmation of the complete chain of custody which has been maintained. Shred-X also offer witnessed destruction should this be required.
We can customise this service to suit your needs, providing you with tailored shredding solutions. To learn more about our clothing and uniform shredding service, please contact Shred-X today.

Why Uniform Destruction is important
Anyone who holds a branded uniform or piece of apparel has the power to represent your brand in the public eye. Back in 2017, Toll lost a major client as a result of an ex-employee falsely representing the values of their brand in the media. This individual was recorded delivering racist statements at an ex-parliament member, while wearing his former employer’s uniform.
As significant as it was for Toll, the implications of not destroying unneeded uniforms can be far worse than losing a single client. A negative representation of your brand could cost your business a significant amount of revenue – enough to halt your business’s operations.
To ensure your business isn’t put at risk of being falsely represented, defamed, or otherwise tarnished in the public eye, it’s essential you destroy all uniforms and products no longer needed. And for the most secure destruction possible, book Shred-X for an onsite destruction service.
