Confidential documents can be a goldmine for identity thieves, who can use the information to commit fraud and steal from you. That's why it's crucial to shred any documents that contain sensitive information before disposing of them.

Shredding is important

Shredding isn't just important for personal documents either. Companies of all sizes have a legal obligation to securely dispose of confidential data. Failure to do so can result in hefty fines and even legal action.

Fortunately, shredding is a simple and cost-effective way to protect your confidential information. And at Russell Richardson we can guarantee that our certified destruction services (no matter what the volume or material being is being shredded) can handle any secure destruction requirements for businesses.

Why should you choose shredding as your method of document destruction?


Shredding is the most secure way to dispose of confidential information. Once the documents are shredded, they cannot be reconstructed, providing complete peace of mind. Operating several industrial shredders at our central facility, we have the capability and experience to handle any secure destruction requirements.


Many industries have legal requirements for data protection and destruction. Shredding ensures that you comply with these regulations and avoid any potential fines. Confidential waste refers to any document or device that contains personal data, and if not stored/shredded correctly it could put your business at risk.


Shredding services are widely available, and most providers offer on-site shredding, meaning that you can watch your documents being shredded in real-time. At Russell Richardson, on or off site, regular or ad-hoc, small volumes or bulk tonnage, we can tailor a document shredding service suitable for any organisation!

Environmentally friendly

Shredding is an eco-friendly way to dispose of paper. Once shredded, the paper is recycled, reducing waste, and helping to protect the environment. We can help reduce the volume of waste sent to landfill and increase your office recycling rates with reliable services tailored to your individual requirements.


Using a shredding service is often more cost-effective than doing it yourself. Shredding equipment can be expensive to purchase and maintain, and it takes up valuable space in your office.
