Legal Sector

Businesses in the legal sector are historically renown for accumulating large quantities of paper waste and confidential documents, relating to their clients. To make sure all firms within the industry adhere to the strict confidentiality guidelines between business and customer, all confidential material must be disposed of in the most secure way possible, in order to protect your client’s legal interests and meeting the future requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For any law related business, as much as robust data protection processes may be obligatory, they can make or break a business’ reputation if not enforced stringently. Loss or accidental sharing of customer information can prove disastrous and costly for a firm, regardless of its size.

At On Time Shred we offer an efficient, secure, reliable and cost effective shredding and recycling service for all law related businesses, providing an off site shredding service, where all confidential waste is shredded at On Time Shred’s secure premises complete with 24 hour CCTV and robust perimeter security. All vehicles have sealed bodies that comply with EURO 5 or 6 emission standards and are continually tracked via GPS. Alternatively, we provide an on site paper shredding service where customers are able to watch their confidential documents being destroyed at their premises.

We offer a choice of collection services, ranging from one off to scheduled collections with an allocated time slot. We can provide a range of secure and lockable cabinets and bins, which remain on the customer’s premises, securing confidential waste, awaiting collection. As well, at On Time Shred, we have noticed a growing trend in requests for an out of office hours shredding service, which we are able to provide, giving our customer’s flexibility during their office hours.

The confidential waste collected ranges from all types of paper records through to cardboard and all electronic media. These include client records, legal documentation, account details, application forms, cheques, employee records, documents provided as proof of ID, insurance forms, CD-ROMs and other digital media. We also dispose of IT equipment such as hard drives and computers, which can be shredded when no longer required.

Your legal obligations are fulfilled by the complete audit trail provided by On Time Shred, starting with a unique collection and waste transfer note number, recording all material collected from your premises, finishing with a Certificate of Destruction upon completion of shredding. The whole confidential shredding process for legal and law companies is carried out in accordance with European Standard EN15713. Also, all employees have been vetted thoroughly and passed the BS7858 security check and full CRB check.

Upon completion of shredding, all paper and recyclable materials are sent to UK recycling mills, with none of our waste going to landfill, providing customers with the piece of mind that all their waste has been disposed of in the most environmentally friendly manner possible.
