We offer a Security Shredding Service for confidential documents, which are securely shredded to security level 3
Personal information may include names, addresses, phone numbers and credit card details, these can be found on Utility Bills, Bank statements, Cheque book stubs, credit card slips, Credit card statements, Wage slips, Old credit card paperwork, and back up CD’s.
At Castles we offer a secure security shredding service for sensitive and confidential documentation. You can simply call into the office, collect one of our special secure shredding sacks with a numbered seal, pay your £5 and take it away.
Take as long as you like to fill the bag with your paperwork/documents/CD backups to a maximum weight of 17kg and seal it yourself.
Return the sack to us during normal office hours, and then we will guarantee to shred the contents in our industrial shredder within 2 hours and issue a Certificate of Destruction for your records, if required.
The shredder feeds the shredded paperwork directly into our own baler, which compresses the paper with a force of 52 tonne. It produces a mill size bale (H 1.1 x W 0.75 x L 1.45 cm) which is then sent to the paper mills to be recycled into other paper products, so providing a closed loop recycling solution.
If you are unable to collect the bags during the normal working day, we are able at an extra cost, of £1 per bag, post out the bags to you for filling. We are able to offer a collection service of the filled bags, price quoted depending on collection address.

Security shredding information
All the confidential waste is destroyed to a high security level. The means the paper is shredded to particle standard (5.80 x 50) which complies to the DIN 3257-1 standard security level 3. Once the paper is shredded, it will be bailed on site and then sent to the paper mills in north Kent to be turned into a piece of paper again.
Almost every business, small or large generates lots of documents and company archives containing sensitive, confidential information. A company has a duty of care to look after the information while they are holding it and then a duty of care in the way it disposes of the information.
The destruction of this information can become necessary for any number of reasons, after several years. For business we can arrange the collection of a larger number of document cartons, crates or security bags if required, this can either be a one off or on a regular basis, please contact us for more information.
