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 and Vetted Staff

To ensure the security of our sites, they’re operated 24 hours a day, seven 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, as well as enhanced DBS checks where required. We also ask them to sign a confidentiality agreement as a condition of their employment.

CCTV Recorded Destruction and 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 of 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 provide brand managers with peace of mind.

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