"In a large primary school, life never stands still. Keeping up to date with all the various activities and ensuring safeguarding protocols remain can be difficult. The confidential waste bins provided by Avena are large, secure and accessible. Our teachers know they can dispose of waste quickly and easily and we, as a school, can be sure that it will remain secure until it is destroyed"

"We have used Avena for our secure waste disposal for a number of years. The console/receptacles blend in with our office and sales environments. They are courteous and helpful whenever they attend our locations for collections. With the forthcoming GDPR regulations I had no hesitation in selecting them as our primary provider in meeting our obligations for secure waste control. They were able to understand our requirements and promptly delivered the extra consoles at our convenience.

I have no hesitation in recommending them"

"When we met with Avena we were looking for a better standard of service for our recycling needs and they have certainly not let us down. Since working with Avena we have received a great level of service, timely and consistent collections and office located recycling units that blend in with our existing furniture. We are very pleased with the product and would recommend Avena without hesitation."

"Avena‘s confidential shredding service for our business is carried out in a professional manner and causes no disruption to the working day. We have a monthly collection and at two sites. The consoles, which are provided free of charge, by Avena as part of the service are smart and in a wood effect material. This does not look out of place in our offices and certainly looks much better than the previous plastic industrial looking bins. The monthly service works well for us and the Avena collection team works quickly to empty the console in a secure manner and provides us with a certificate of destruction. Avena’s service agreement gives us the confidence that we are compiling with Data Protection and also removing unwanted paper from our office in an environmentally friendly way."

The Lively Crew Ltd 


"Avena provides us with a professional confidential shredding service. This gives us with the peace of mind in knowing that we are complying with our regulatory requirements under the Data Protection Act, understanding our circumstances and offering a tailor made solution to meet with our needs."

NFU Mutual


"Life Fitness have now used the Avena waste paper consoles for four months, and in that time we have noticed a vast difference in office tidiness and safety due to the waste being contained in enclosed consoles and not littering various parts of the office. In short, I would recommend the Avena systems for both confidential and non-confidential waste."
