What is Mobile Paper Shredding?
Within every business, there will be a variety of confidential documents that include secure information such as customer home and work addresses, credit card and passport information and driving licenses. These need to be destroyed effectively to ensure the information does not enter the wrong hands once it is no longer of use to you. The most simple way to effectively destroy your paper copies is to shred all documents and send them off for recycling through a trusted provider like Global Office Supplies.
The Data Protection Act
Not only should this be done through business security, but you also have a legal duty under the Data Protection Act to ensure that supplier, staff and customer documents are held and destroyed securely to help eliminate the risk of criminal activity and exploitation of data.
Over the years, identity theft has become more and more common, with the UK identity theft crime rate alone rising over 500% each year, costing the economy around £1.7bn in total. To ensure your suppliers, staff and customers do not become a victim of this crime, we suggest you shred all of your unwanted paper documents and store those that are needed in a secure place, only granting trusted, relevant people access.
Global Office Supplies have a secure, four-step shredding solution you can rely on which fully complies with the Data Protection Act.
Step 1 – Fill Up
Once you have gotten into contact with us, we will provide you with a secure container for you to place all of your unwanted paper documents. The size of the container will depend on the needs of your business.
From there, all you have to do is fill it up with your unwanted documents, with no need to remove paper clips or staples.
Step 2 – Collect
When your container is full, let us know and we will come and collect it for you. If you have regular waste documents, we can provide you with weekly, fortnightly or four-weekly collection. We will also give you a certificate after every collection for your records.
Step 3 – Shred
Our mobile shredding trucks allow us to shred your documents there and then, offering you peace of mind that your secure documents have been destroyed effectively. Alternatively, we can move them to a secure shredding facility straight away. It all depends on your security requirements.
Step 4 – Recycle
Now that your documents have been shredded, we will recycle them in a legal, responsible and environmentally conscious manner.
