Confidential waste

Some material is not for public consumption, which is why you need Viridor to destroy it

We work to the highest standards set up by BSIA Code of Practice BS:EN 1513:2009 for information destruction. We are also certified to international standards ISO9001 and 14001, ISO5001 and OHSAS18001 for quality, environmental and health and safety management by the British Standard Institute (BSI).

We monitor our confidential waste sites 24/7 via CCTV. Our collection vehicles are fitted with heavy-duty security locks and immobilisation equipment. If that wasn’t enough, GPS tracking allows us to pinpoint exactly where the trucks and vans are at any given time.

Once your confidential waste has been shredded and/or pulverised, the end result is barely recognisable and so fragmented it can often be recycled immediately. Any material that can’t be recovered will go for incineration or disposal at one of our own sites. For a peace of mind, we will give you a ‘Certificate of Destruction’ for your records.

We offer DataSafe secure destruction, which provides secure guaranteed collection, shredding and disposal of confidential materials by vetted security personnel in specialised facilities.
