Shredding Colchester

No matter the size of your organisation, you’re sure to handle confidential and sensitive information on a regular basis – and as such, it’s essential that you make sure what you do collect can never be compromised or end up being obtained by fraudsters.

Document destruction is a must so if you need help shredding at your Colchester company, get in touch with us today. Here are just a few reasons why a professional shredding service can be particularly beneficial for businesses.

Data protection laws

You have to make sure you’re fully compliant with any and all data protection laws, particularly now that the GDPR has been introduced, otherwise you could find your business is hit with a hefty financial penalty… which could potentially bring it to its knees. If you just throw your waste paper away in the bin, you’re not complying with regulations.


You might have an office shredder at work but this simply can’t guarantee the security that you’ll get if you do make use of a professional and reliable shredding firm. Their staff members will have been specifically trained to carry out certain tasks so you can rest assured that fraud and identity theft won’t be an issue for your business.


If you’re looking to save money, as well as time, there’s no better way to do this than by hiring a company like Avena Confidential. You can cut costs dramatically by outsourcing document destruction as you won’t need to pay employees to do it, freeing them up for other more important tasks.

More productive

Who wants to sit there taking staples and paperclips out of paper before putting items in the office shredder? No one, that’s who. It’s a waste of your employees’ valuable time, time that could be better spent working harder for your company – so give us a call today if you’d like to see a boost in productivity this year.

Documentation collection

You don’t even have to go anywhere any more to have your documents disposed of in the correct way. One of our fully trained and security vetted service operatives will come to your place of business and collect all documentation from you, before transporting it back to the depot for destruction. Our trucks all feature real-time tracking systems and are locked, alarmed and immobilised when unattended – so all documents are always entirely safe.
