Saving the environment one shredding bin at a time!

Sensitive information can prove detrimental if it ends up in the wrong hands. The misuse of paper and other office materials also can be detrimental for the environment if not destroyed correctly.

At National Document Shredding Service, our process is not only good for the safety of sensitive information but the environment. 

Since our business formed in the 1990’s by Theo St James, we have produced millions of tonnes of shreds.

These are fed into paper recycling.

All documents are cross-shredded and reduced into tiny fragments before being transferred to a paper recycling facility. They will then be recycled into new paper products.

Astonishingly, each tonne of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic meters of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy and 7000 gallons of water.

We help businesses do their bit by ensuring the paper they no longer need gets to us. Sensitive documents and information are securely destroyed to avoid consequences like identity theft and corporate espionage.

Here are some tips to help get a shredding system going in your office:
  • The location of your shredding bin has an influence on the rate of use. If your shredding bin is in an inconvenient location, it’s importance to employees will be less.
  • Locate your shredding bin next to or close by to a general waste bin or other recycling bin so that employees are inclined to make use of it as it is convenient to them.
  • Educate staff and personnel on shredding policies
  • Motivate staff to take part in the initiatives. Tips include a ‘Shredding Hero’ award or acknowledgement at staff meetings
