Secure Destruction Benefits

Secure destruction for businesses is a requirement of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Every piece of data is valuable, no matter how old and companies can’t afford to keep every digital or physical information and just deleting the file or putting it in the bin doesn’t secure confidentiality. Therefore, secure destruction whether it be shredding, granulation, shearing or baling processes is the one way to guarantee that once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

With a third-party secure destruction service, it takes time off the employees physically having to do it themselves. Therefore, staff can be more productive with their time. Also resulting […]

The best thing about aluminium? It can be recycled indefinitely, without ever losing its quality. As one of the most valuable commonly discarded metals – the aluminium industry in the USA alone pays out almost 1 billion dollars a year for recycled cans – it really […]

Reasons to Recycle: Lead

Lead is a widely used metal due to its dense, malleable and soft characteristics, found in everything from car batteries to paint pigment, ammunition to cable sheathing, dumbells to radiation protection!

As it is a toxic metal, lead cannot simply be thrown into a bin and sent to the landfills. When these materials are disposed of improperly, it can cause many hazardous problems, for example, the lead could leak […]
