Step 1: Buy Your Sacks
These Eco-SHRED sacks help you collect and store your personal and confidential paperwork. The sacks are approximately two feet high and 35 litres in volume which is about three-quarters of the size of a normal black bin liner. A well packed sack can hold around 4 to 5 reams of A4 paper.
The Shred-Packs are sent by Royal Mail directly to your home, for you to securely store your confidential paperwork. They are small enough to go through the letterbox so you don't need to be in to receive them.
There is no need to remove staples, paper clips or take the paper out of manila folders! All of this can be handled by the secure shredding centre. All you have to do is stack the paper, card, bank statements or sensitive documents in the sack, seal it up (the sacks are self-sealing) and book your collection date.
When carefully filled our Eco-SHRED sacks contain a pile of A4 paper approximately 15 inches high.
It is around 4 reams of paper and up to 15kg in weight, which makes them manageable to move around the home and for the delivery men to pick up.
You'll be surprised what our strong, industrial shredders can shred: all grades of paper, staples and paper clips, metals fastenings, plastic/metal spines and spiral pads, plastic wallets, folders, card, hardback diaries, cheque book stubs, envelopes, catalogues and brochures, books, magazines, credit and debit cards, passports, acetates, x-rays.
We cannot accept lever-arch files or bulldog clips.
Protecting your identity and the security of your confidential paperwork is of paramount importance and the self sealing sacks are NEVER opened.
Once sealed at your premises, your sensitive paperwork remains safely contained all the way to a CCTV-managed shredding facility. The sacks remain sealed and are shredded in their entirety.
We post the sacks via Royal Mail and they are dispatched folded, within a plastic wallet, which is designed to go through your letterbox.
You therefore do not need to stay in to receive your sacks.
For orders received by 3pm we dispatch the sacks via Royal Mail and they should reach you within 2 working days.
When you are ready for collection we'll organise a convenient time for our police-vetted staff to collect from your home in our satellite-tracked vans. Simply click on 'order now', input your postcode and the system will tell you which day of the week we cover your area.
Collections are made between the hours of 9am and 5pm by a member of our collection team. Once the payment is complete you will receive an email confirmation that your collection has been scheduled.
The sacks are taken to a secure facility and shredded within a strict 24-hour period. A ‘Certificate of Destruction' is supplied for all our customers. We only shred at high-security CCTV managed shredding facilities, where the van goes into the building and remains secure until the shredding process has been completed.
HomeShred UK's personable and friendly shredding service helps make the task of securely disposing of your personal documents simple and stress-free.
Upon collecting your sacks we shred the contents within a strict 24-hour period at a secure CCTV managed shredding facility.
We issue a ‘Certificate of Destruction' via email upon completion which details the quantity of sacks shredded, the date of collection and the date of shredding.
Our document shredding companies are committed to the secure destruction of our clients' confidential documents, we are also here to protect our environment and recycle 100% of the paper after the shredding process.
We even use ‘Eco-SHRED Sacks' which are made from sustainably sourced paper to store our client's sensitive documents which are fully shreddable and recyclable!
Let's face it... small domestic shredders aren't really up to the task of shredding lots of paperwork. It's a timely process removing staples and paper clips and holding 1-2 sheets over the shredding machine only to get frustrated when the machine overheats and takes ten minutes to cool down before you can start again!
Whether it be personal bank statements, bills, insurance documents or sensitive paperwork... perhaps you are moving house... or recently retired...or maybe you are just having a good spring clean clear out, HomeShredUK is here to make your home paper shredding needs simple and we keep you 100% safe and secure.
