Job Spec

We were asked to collect and shred 150 sacks of confidential waste paperwork for our Client FCS Cleaning who provide a contract cleaning, waste collection and facilities management service. This confidential clearance was for one of their clients, a housing association based in Redhill, Surrey.


The sheer volume of paper at the premises filled an entire room and posed a significant fire risk to the building and had to be cleared the same week and as soon as possible!


Identity Destruction Ltd responded within in 48 hours and sent two vans to collect the confidential waste paperwork weighing over 2 tonnes and bring back to our CCTV managed shredding facility for destruction.

This job came in last minute and we had to clear the offices asap

Our shred team were despatched to the Client's workplace quick smart

The 150 sacks of confidential paperwork were collected by two members of the iD shred team in just 90 minutes

Our GPS tracked vans were loaded up with over 2 tonnes of paperwork

Back at our CCTV managed shredding facility we shredded the paperwork the very same day

This collection generated over 3 x 600kg bales of shredded paper which was sent off for recycling into over 8000 new loo rolls


The 150 sacks of confidential paperwork were cross shredded at our secure shredding facility and the paper compacted into 600 kg paper bales to be made ready recycling at a UK tissue recycling mill. These 2 tonnes of shredded paperwork were fully recycled to make over 8000 toilet rolls!


The swiftness and efficient collection and shredding of our client's 150 confidential waste sacks by Identity Destruction was on point as always. The process was seamless, ensuring our client's sensitive information remained secure and the Certificate of Destruction followed the very next day. The super quick response time for pickup and shredding was greatly valued by our client.

Clear communication as always from the Identity Destruction office ensured a smooth process and our client couldn't have been happier with getting their office space back! Overall, a commendable experience, swift, effortless and ensuring peace of mind regarding the disposal of our customer's confidential materials.

Shred-As-You-Wait Service

Thank you again to Johny and the team for an outstanding service. We had a number of old PC's, hard drives and miscellaneous data discs and back up tapes (yes, tapes!) that needed destroying securely, with certification. A super-quick, friendly service - these guys know what they're doing. Cannot recommend them highly enough!

Hard Drive Shredding

Thank you to Identity Destruction for shredding 2 laptops, an Ipad and 6 mobile phones for me. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. A great way of making sure any confidential files were destroyed safely. I was invited to watch it happen in front of me which was interesting. It was more involved than I thought as all batteries had to be removed first to prevent a fire risk, safety first. I received a certificate via email promptly after the shredding. I have recommended your services to others.

Second time I've used ID. Previously I went to their old Shopwhyke site. They are now located in Priors Leaze Lane. As before, I just turned up and made use of the Shred as you Wait service. The staff are very friendly and my files were destroyed while I looked on. A receipt and destruction certificate were emailed to me later in the day. The whole process is extremely quick and efficient. I can thoroughly recommend this company.

This is the perfect way to safely destroy any paperwork that you need to dispose of . I have just taken over a few sacks of my mother&pos;s estate . Too much to shred at home . It&pos;s also a great price and saves a lot of time

As a business we have been using Identity Destruction for 3 years and the service is excellent. We have a monthly collection of confidential paperwork. The day prior to each collection we are e-mailed a pick up time slot, the following day we receive a certificate of destruction. The team at Identity Destruction could not be more friendly and helpful.
