Secure Document Shredding

Derwent Recycling Services offer a secure document shredding service throughout Cumbria. We can help you to protect your company from security threats and compliance failure.

Why shred your documents?

  • Security - In every business, confidential documents are generated by almost every employee, from payroll information to employee medical records. Many documents contain private information that could be a security risk in the wrong hands.
  • Compliance - Document destruction compliance is now a legal requirement. All private information contained in documents must be destroyed in a way that ensures it cannot be recreated. Secure shredding is the most effective and preferred method.
  • Identity Theft Prevention - Identity theft has already grown to become one of the most costly security risks that businesses now face. It’s a threat which can quickly destroy business reputation and security. 
  • Save Time & Money - Even if you currently handle you shredding in-house, cost savings can be made by outsourcing your document destruction to Derwent Recycling. Time is money. When document shredding in-house, employees have to set aside valuable work hours to separate paper, remove paper clips, staples and actually carry out the shredding – time which could be better spent. Derwent Recycling Services can do the same task in minutes with no disruption to your business.

Using a company such as Derwent Recycling Services who deal with confidential document shredding, will ensure that you never have to worry about your confidential documents again, so you can concentrate on other aspects of your business.
