As a London business it is your responsibility (and legal obligation) to ensure you safeguard your customers and employees against identity fraud by disposing of all personal information securely using a reputable paper shredding service. It is advised that you employ a specialised, licensed company such as Waste Paper Solutions to carry out these duties on your behalf. We have over 10 years industry experience working with businesses in London and our friendly knowledgable staff will help you set everything up. You can of course shred your sensitive documents ‘in house’ – but the advantages of using a professional commercial shredding service such as that provided by Waste Paper Solutions are hard to ignore….
If your business is audited or investigated it is nearly impossible to prove you have securely disposed of paperwork yourself. Our paper shredding service will ensure this is taken care of professionally and thoroughly. We provide a paper trail that complies to Data Protection guidelines so you are completely covered at all times. This means Waste Transfer Notes (kept at Waste Paper Solutions Head Office for a minimum two years) and destruction certificates for every single collection carried out by us. Hundreds of businesses in London already use our paper shredding service – we would love to welcome you on board.
Shredding paperwork yourself can be very time consuming, and low quality desk side shredders can be very temperamental. Our London paper shredding service can usually be carried out for roughly the same cost as a small shredder. It also includes all certification for your records. A certified document destruction service is important because, even if you have disposed of the paperwork yourself securely, there is no way to prove this in the event of any audit or investigation. Our certification is the reassurance to your clients that their information is in safe hands.
As a business in London you have a legal obligation to recycle or reuse all waste produced as a result of your operation. This means even if you are shredding your documents internally, if you are then throwing the shredded paper in the bin you are breaking the law as you have not taken all necessary steps to ensure it has been recycled. Similarly, if you are taking commercial paper waste to a household recycling depot or your local recycling centre then your company is also breaking the law – It is illegal to dispose of commercial waste in domestic recycle bins. You are also required to provide a Waste Transfer Note for every single bit of waste that leaves your premises. If your company is not adhering to these guidelines, or cannot produce on demand two years worth of Waste Transfer Notes, then you could face prosecution by The Environment Agency. The only way to ensure you comply with the law completely is to use a registered waste disposal company. Waste Paper Solutions take care of this beautifully and simply.

Our document shredding service is billed at £45 + vat. (Central London from £55) This includes collection and disposal of up to 10 bags or archive storage boxes and all certification for your records. Additional bags are charged at just £2 each (£3 Central London). For larger quantities we charge a flat rate of £2 per bag/box. There are no other costs and no up front charges. The price you are quoted is the price you pay. We can collect the waste as it is stored, providing it is clean, strong bags or boxes. Bags must be sealed and boxes should have lids. We can also arrange to deliver our own heavy duty bags for you to use to ensure maximum security in transit. These are provided free of charge (excluding postage) and include security tags. Please call 0203 086 7843 or email email@example.com if you need to order bags.
Every piece of paper we collect is treated as confidential. It is taken to a secure commercial shredding compound where it is weighed and logged on to our system. It is then loaded on to conveyors and destroyed either by pulping or shredding. The finished ‘pulped’ paper is then baled and ready to be recycled. The process is recorded from start to finish by way of a ‘paper trail’. This is required by law. Once your paperwork has been destroyed you are sent a certificate of destruction. Our shredding service takes care of everything for you, from collection to disposal.
First and foremost, there is the security of your staff, customers and the business itself. By disposing of sensitive documents using a reputable commercial shredding company, client details, quotes and information pertaining to your employees you are essentially safeguarding your company from potential fraudulent activity against it.
However, it does not stop there. Most businesses we talk to are completely unaware of their legal obligation to carry out these duties and have no idea of the implications if they are caught not doing so. If you have no idea what a waste transfer note is, or have never heard of the waste hierarchy then you need to read here.
Not only can you be fined and prosecuted for failing to adhere to strict guidelines set out under the Data Protection Act – but you can also be heavily fined by the Environment Agency for simply not recycling your waste using a registered waste disposal company. Always use a licensed waste contractor and ensure your commercial shredding requirements are dealt with by an expert. If you are a London based business, there is no doubt that Waste Paper Solutions’ shredding service is the simplest most cost-effective way to deal with your commercial waste.
Simply give us a call or send us an email with your company name, postcode and requirements and we can book you in for collection. Customers in London will usually be accommodated the same week (Central London may be slightly longer).
