Recycling makes good business sense in Shropshire

Shropshire family firm WN Shredding are on a mission.  To tackle identity theft and fraud and help local businesses avoid fines of up to £500,000 under the Data Protection Act for failing to secure confidential waste.

The firm which boasts it can ‘pulverise your privates’ offer completely secure collections of confidential papers which are sent for secure shredding at their Shifnal depot.  Their industrial shredder has the capacity to shred 2 tonnes of paper per hour!

What’s more there’s an environmental agenda here too, with the firm committed to recycling since it first opened in 1989, they have recycled more than 25,000 tonnes of shredded paper.  This works out that they have saved almost half a million trees as well as reducing landfill too.  Their shredded paper is baled on site and then delivered to UK paper mills where it’s pulped and pressed into leading brands of toilet paper such as Nouvelle – what could be more secure than that!
