Shredding Console Colours

Posted by angus carnie on Sunday, January 4, 2015, In : Shredding Consoles 

We love our shredding consoles and although beech/granite is still by a massive margin our top seller followed by grey/granite but my favourite is richmond oak and we do have a few organisations that insist on these and I can see why.


It will be interesting in 2015 to see if the trend continues but the choice is there and customers do like this option!

Confidential Waste Bin

Posted by angus carnie on Sunday, August 24, 2014, In : Confidential Waste Bins 

In the UK today data protection for businesses is absolutely crucial with fines for breaching the Data Protection Act now increased to £500,000. Plus the breach is widely publicised in the press and on the internet. Companies that have been fined include many high profile organisations and hospitals but lots of small companies too!

Fortunately they are fairly inexpensive solutions available.Having a proper system is the key to compliance. One of the best ways is to have a designated lockabl...

They need to be strong as we know in the real world that customers will put items on top of them such as printers, files and so on and these weights will be there for a long time. We only use 18mm wood as we know through years of experience that is the thickness required.

Why recycling is important

Posted by angus carnie on Sunday, April 13, 2014, In : Recycling 

We believe recycling is crucial in business in the UK today for the following reasons: 

Staff recruitment and retention

A recycling scheme creates a good impression to prospective employees if the business cares about the environment and of course the wider community. Employees like to be involved in green initiatives.  And for the fairly minor cost of a few office recycling bins most businesses can adopt a green recycling scheme for paper, cans, card board very easily.

Customer perception...

If your customer wants a shredding console in green or red or white with a walnut top why not give them want they want.

Confidential Waste Bins

Posted by angus carnie on Saturday, January 4, 2014, In : document shredding consoles 

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 poli...

For example we know that end users WILL place often heavy items on top of these units for long periods of time that is the most common failure of cheap imported cabinets is that the weight for the these items has to be transferred to the side of the cabinets and not the to...

Depending on where your closest provider is located, it may be an inconvenience to drop off your materials for destruction.

Document destruction usually by shredding is an industrial process used to destroy sensitive documents by usually cross cutting into unreadable small pieces. There are two main reasons why document shredding is important: to prevent breaching the Data Protection Act and to correctly dispose of confidential information or data. Document shredders can range in size from a small electric machines to a large industrial units.

Identify theft is a multibillion pornd industry that is often connecte...

New sales ploy

Posted by angus carnie on Wednesday, March 27, 2013,
More and more we are seeing  urgent requests for security consoles and lockable bins - what seems to be happening is the big operators are immediately removing their bins and not waiting to complete the notice period. I think the theory behind that is to see if the smaller shredding companies can install the consoles very quickly or if they fall at the first hurdle 
Interesting technique to retain business

Having been in this industry for over 10 years you pick up a bit of knowledge on the way! So my mission was to redesign console sacks to make them stronger and last longer and hopefully cheaper! But not loose all the aspects we like about them.
