At B&M, we take privacy seriously. Our secure shredding service will help your organisation comply with legislation and protect you against damaging data breaches.
We can provide a professional shredding service to meet your individual needs. Whether you want regular on-site shredding, off-site shredding or a one-off service, we will save you time and money. We also provide home shredding services to residents near to our units in Bromborough, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham.
Once processed, all shredded paper is 100% recycled, supporting your company’s recycling efforts. What’s more, we were the first shredding company in the country to be awarded Carbon Neutral PAS (2060) status.
As part the B&M Waste family, B&M Secure Shredding was launched in April 2011. With over 10 years’ experience dedicated to secure shredding services, backed up by fully certified staff and leading industry accreditations, you can trust us to manage your confidential documents.
Every organisation handles lots of sensitive information. Whether it’s customer data, financial reports or employee records; in the wrong hands it can open your business up to fraud.
We’re a registered principal member of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), as well as accredited to ISO 9001 and the BS EN 15713 standard, which covers the secure destruction of confidential material. So you can be assured our service is of the highest quality.
All of our operatives hold government enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks, and are vetted in accordance with BS7858, the UK standard for vetting of people employed in the security sector. This means that you have peace of mind that the people collecting and shredding your confidential waste are fully qualified and as trustworthy as they can be.
After shredding your documents, we will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction so that you have proof of secure data destruction.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in 2018 and dictates the policies surrounding data protection for every organisation that handles, stores or processes the personal data of EU citizens. The Data Protection Act 2018 is the UK’s implementation of the GDPR. The UK government have confirmed that GDPR will continue to apply to the UK after Brexit.
By adhering to GDPR regulations and taking steps to ensure your paperwork is shredded professionally, you are highlighting your commitment to protecting your customers and their personal information.
Our shredding facility can handle a wide variety of items including metals, plastic, fabric, ceramics, liquid, as well as paper. Our secure product destruction service will be tailored to your individual requirements, ensuring nothing gets into the wrong hands.
Caution right now is a priority for our business and clients. Communication remains crucial to update all customers about the changes to their services which the onsite team are doing regularly.
All activity which requires our teams to enter a building is paused and we ask all customers to move their containers to easily accessible locations.
Paperwork is no longer required at the point of collection. We will sign on your behalf and email if required.
PPE is used during collections (Gloves, Safety Footwear, High Vis) in addition to Nitrile gloves worn underneath normal gloves. We recommend customers to wear gloves whilst moving bins. We empty the container and return it to the place we collected it from with the lid closed.
The driver will not get out of their cab if they arrive on site and there are people present and social distancing cannot be done.
With a professional shredding service, you can rest assured that the paperwork you separate for shredding has been completely destroyed. Organisations that do not comply with GDPR can face fines of up to 4% of global turnover from the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).
Implementing a shredding service can make personal data unrecoverable, preventing access by third parties.
And remember, new and existing customers with a new contract can save up to 10% on secure shredding costs this year*. (*Ends 31st December 2020)
With all that is going on in the world at the moment, waste management continues to be an essential utility and we are doing all that we can to continue to operate as normal.
We can remotely organise audits, paperwork and health and safety documentation without the need for physical contact so that a safe and compliant service can commence imminently.
