FAQs

Why should we employ a document shredding & recycling company?

There’s never been a better time to rely on Simply Shred & Recycle. The truth of the matter is every business /organisation has information that is confidential in nature and would be of interest to others. All this data could cause considerable damage if it were to fall into the wrong hands. Add to this the bevy of requirements outlined in the Data Protection Act, as well as European and Government regulations, it is imperative every business/organisation has a system in place today. It is now the law to have a secure method in place.

Does Simply Shred conduct background checks on its employees?

Yes all Simply Shred staff are security screened. All of our Customer Service Representatives also undergo rigorous background checks, are bonded and insured.

What type of shredding do you do?

Our shredders utilise a crosscut shredding process, reducing paper to criss-cross cut pieces of confetti. These criss-cross pieces of paper are cut to approximately 8mm, which provides far greater security than conventional strip cut shredders.

How is the material stored?

We provide security locked office-quality consoles free of charge. These consoles are designed to blend into any office environment and are located strategically throughout your offices. The material is contained in specially designed bags within these consoles, and only the designated contacts within your organisation has a key to access these consoles.

Is the shredding process secure?

Yes. Our document shredding services are done, right on-sight. The contents of the consoles are placed directly into the shredder.

What if I only need to use your service one time or for annual clean-ups?

No problem. Whatever your requirements, from daily activity to annual purges, we are happy to meet your needs.

We have an in-house office shredder so why would I need your service?
