Shredding Services Wakefield
Do you require a shredding service in Wakefield, the North West or even nationally? Wakefield Waste Management can supply options to securely disposing of all your confidential information. We aren’t limited to paper confidential shredding but can offer uniform destruction and media destruction, including hard drives, cardboard, fabrics and even some plastics (e.g. ID badges): this ensures your private information stays protected, no matter what form it’s in.
With the danger of identity theft high in the last few years, a record shredding service will provide you with reassurance which you have kept your employees’ and customers’ confidential information protected. The Data Protection Act (1998) places a legal obligation on your own business safely destroy any data that could identify a living individual. This consists of invoices, legal documents, payroll records, medical records and client lists.
You might even need to keep specific records for many years but do not fall into the trap of thinking that they’re no longer private after this date. Neglecting to fulfil your responsibilities under the Data Protection Act could lead to a fine of up to 500,000, as well as discrediting your reputation as a business.
An in-house shredder could seem like a great solution to the trouble. Yet, these are time consuming, expensive to repair and noisy. Furthermore, you still need to dispose of the shredded waste after.
