Secure shredding
Business shredding services

Whether you are an SME or a larger organisation, you are likely to handle confidential information, which means you will require business shredding services. By using our service, you can rest easy that your business is complying fully with data protection law by securely destroying you and your customers confidential data.

By ensuring your confidential documents are regularly collected and shredded, it’s easy to keep on top of them and prevents them sitting in the office longer than necessary. We offer both an ad-hoc service to those who don’t regularly produce confidential material and a bulk uplift service for large clear-outs. All of our collections are carried out separately from the rest of your waste and recycling by a dedicated and trained team.

Why it’s important

It’s so important to schedule business shredding services – if you don’t, you are risking a data breach and a potential fine for failing to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Aside from that, it’s important that your customers know that their information is safe with you. At Changeworks Confidential, we not only securely destroy confidential papers, we recycle them too – so it’s a win-win for your business and the environment.

What are the UKSSA Standards

We are members of the United Kingdom Security Shredding Association (UKSSA), which is the only UK-based association dedicated to rigorously enforcing security shredding operational standards.

UKSSA members must comply with a Code of Practice and are regularly audited to ensure they meet the required standards. Being a UKSSA member demonstrates that our customers’ data is 100% safe and regulated.
