3 things to consider when searching for a Paper Shredding Service

Words by Cynthia Vanzella

In today’s world, commercial privacy is paramount. Cupboards and boxes filled with old documents represent a risk of data violation if they get thrown away or end up in the wrong hands. Sensitive information needs to be safely stored and, when the time comes, safely destroyed.

Here are three things you need to consider when searching for a confidential paper shredding provider:

  • Security

A secure, GDPR-compliant paper shredding service is vital for every business, big or small. And, in this day and age, technology can ease your peace of mind.

At First Mile, each confidential paper sack is individually scanned before being collected from inside your business by a uniformed DBS-checked driver.

The sacks are then transported on our GPS tracked and CCTV monitored vans to our depot, where the paper is shredded within 24-hours at our BS15713 accredited facility. A free certificate of destruction is provided.

  • Transparency

As with any service, clarity and credibility are crucial when choosing a new provider.

First Mile offers very competitive prices and no minimum collection for confidential paper shredding or confidential data recycling. Both services are on demand, so you’re not attached to any contracts. And, of course, there are no hidden fees.

  • Environmentally responsible

Taking care of the planet is just as important than taking care of your business. Once your confidential paper is shredded, a reliable recycling service can turn it into new products such as newspapers, tissues and brand-new copier paper. Good for you, good for the environment.

First Mile ensures that all shredded paper is 100% recycled into paper goods and nothing is burned or ends up in the landfill. Our secure collection vans run on electricity, so your confidential paper recycling request leaves no carbon footprint on the planet.
