Since the 1998 Data Protection Act came into force, there has been much debate about the disposal of confidential information. Important bank details and personal contact details have been found carelessly and illegally dumped in ordinary bins. The solution to the proper management and disposal of sensitive confidential details is simple – use a lockable bin and employ a trusted waste management company to destroy this information.

Under the Act, businesses must have a ‘data control policy’ to ensure that secure methods are used to prevent the unlawful disclosure or accidental loss of personal data and our range of confidential waste bins can play a vital role within this policy.
