Confidential Waste

Confidential waste consists of documents, digital media and other items such as uniforms that need to be treated and disposed of securely. Whether they’re commercially sensitive or are covered by General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), you can trust Zest Recycle to handle your confidential waste with the utmost care and responsibility.

Confidential Waste Disposal

The safest and most secure way to handle confidential waste is to use an approved supplier that meets the relevant standards of accreditation and approval, such as EN 15713. All our security shredding supply chain partners are vetted to the highest standards, giving you complete peace of mind when you choose us as your waste management partner.

We can offer on-site secure shredding solutions where a mobile shredding vehicle attends site to carry out shredding under client observation. Or we can provide off-site shredding with full supply of the appropriate secure shredding bags or consoles and a collection schedule which suits your business. All paper is recycled (with potential closed loop opportunities) and all confidential waste is handled in line with the waste hierarchy, meaning we aim to recycle or recover as much confidential waste as possible.

Whether you require a one-off, ad-hoc secure destruction or regular collection service for your confidential waste, at Zest Recycle we can tailor our service solution to work for your business’ specific requirements.

We work with companies across the UK to help them dispose of their waste. So don’t leave your confidential waste disposal needs to chance, give us a call.
