Witnessed Disposal – Legal Requirement

For many companies and brand managers it is not just for “peace of mind” there is also a legal requirement to ensure that their products have been destroyed and cannot re-enter the market. To help with this we are happy to accommodate visiting clients or insurance companies who wish to witness the destruction of these materials.

Secure Waste Disposal Site & Vetted Staff

To ensure the security of our sites, our sites are manned 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Heavy duty barriers, gated entrances and perimeter fencing provide additional security.

We fully vet all staff. They are subject to disclosure and regular driving licence checks, and enhanced DBS checks where required. We also ask them to sign a confidentiality agreement as a condition of their employment.

CCTV recorded destruction & Certificates of Destruction

Our secure destruction service includes a fully operational 24-hour Ultra HD CCTV system that closely monitors the site. We can offer our clients a permanent record of the disposal for their files if required. To provide further assurance and documented evidence we issue a Certificate of destruction.

Brand Protection

By destroying obsolete or damaged inventory and stopping it from re-entering the market we protect companies and provides brand managers with peace-of-mind.

We can record from our ultra-HD CCTV and provide a permanent record of the destruction.
