Document Destruction

Avena provide a confidential information shredding and recycling service which is specifically tailored to each individual customers' needs.

Securall System Installation 

One of Avena’s friendly sales representatives will visit your premises to introduce you to the Securall system and evaluate your company’s needs. Once a service requirement has been agreed, a convenient installation date will be arranged and the Securall units will be delivered and installed by one of our service operatives. When the service operative leaves, the unit will be ready for your staff to use straight away.


Collection From Premises 

On an agreed date, one of our fully trained, security vetted service operatives will arrive to collect the documentation from the sealed Securall unit. The documents will then be transported to the depot ready for the destruction process to take place. All our vehicles are fitted with real time tracking systems which allows us to have an instant knowledge of their location at any time. The vehicles are locked, alarmed and immobilised when unattended and automatically locked when in transit.


Destruction Process

Material for destruction is then transported back to our secure depot or destroyed on-site if this is specifically required for security. 


Full Audit Trail

To evidence the completed process a certificate of destruction is issued. This certificate accurately records and details the destruction process and is sent back to the client immediately following the destruction.



Once the documentation has been securely destroyed it is then compacted and pressed into large paper bales. These bales are sent to paper mills throughout the UK. The paper mills will process the destroyed documents further and use the material to make a wide variety of recycled products. From start to finish the Securall system provides a fully environmentally friendly service.
