SHREDDING has helped one North East company report bumper business.

Washington-based Premier Waste Management has reported an increase in business since it launched a secure paper shredding operation just under two years ago.

The company say they are shredding about 62 tonnes of paper each month and collecting a further 50 tonnes per month of mixed recycling from small businesses in the area.

 The service is there so that businesses are able to securely dispose of confidential paper documents such as customer records and contracts.

The shredding process renders the documents unreadable and the bales of the shredded paper are sent to paper mills and recycled into tissue.

 Graeme Carter, commercial manager at Premier Waste, said: “Every company has material that they need to keep secret: staff records, customer files, company plans, etc.

 “Sending your confidential paper for shredding and recycling has a much lower carbon footprint than land-filling or incinerating the paper.”

 Businesses are able to select the frequency of their paper collections and those that opt for regular collections can also dispose of other recyclable materials such as drinks cans, cardboard, old electrical equipment and toner cartridges that are donated to The Butterwick Hospice.
