Looking After Paper Waste as a Small Business

14th July 2017

For a small business owner in the UK there is a pressure and, in most cases, a desire for the company that person is running to be environmentally aware and to ensure the carbon footprint is reduced wherever possible. Going ‘green’ doesn’t have to be expensive and there are a few processes that you can put in place that immediately encourage recycling within your team, boost your credentials as a brand and create a culture to be proud of.

Growing as a company is difficult but one thing you can do at the very beginning that is easy to scale and allows you to strive towards a paperless working environment in the future is to employ the services of a local paper shredding company.

One of your biggest impacts as a small business is to create paper waste, with 12.5 million tonnes of paper and cardboard through out as waste each year within the UK. Think about how much of a difference you could make to the environment if you could guarantee that all of your paper waste was shredded and then recycled, and then imagine if all 12.5 million tonnes of waste in the country followed suit.

In terms of changing the culture of your working environment this is the easiest way to do so, all you have to do is instruct your staff to put paper waste in a box marked for shredding and we’ll do the rest.

Box-it Yorkshire understands that it is important to you, the small business owner, to implement change as early on as possible to allow you to grow effectively. Our confidential shredding service offers you the chance to create a culture of environmental awareness in a straightforward and simple manner that recycles your waste, whilst also allowing your employees, clients and suppliers the peace of mind that your paper waste is being destroyed in a way that adheres to data privacy policies and guards against identity theft.

Our team can come to your place of work on a regular, scheduled basis to collect your paper waste. We can provide you with a secure box for paper waste to be put in by your staff for discretion. Once collected we will destroy the documents through a shredding process at a secure location close to your premises. We will do so within 24-hours of collection and under CCTV, providing you with a document of destruction once completed to demonstrate that we have disposed of your paper waste in a secure, private and legal manner. All of our shredded paper waste is then sent to recycling, rather than to the landfill with the regular waste.

If you would like to find out more about the confidential shredding service from Box-it Yorkshire, please contact us today and we’ll be more than happy to offer advice and guidance based on your specific requirements, including your type of industry, amount of paper waste and to answer any other questions you may have.
