Security is still as important to Ascentas when it comes to your shredding material. Your confidential material is transported in locked containers and remains locked until they arrive at an Ascentas Centre. Once they arrive at the Centre, they are immediately co-mingled with millions of other documents ready for destruction.
Ascentas staff sort all incoming material for appropriate processing, taking out any plastic items or heavy cardboard. These items will be recycled through a different process.
At the end of the Shredding Process, everything which is shredded by Ascentas is sent to a paper mill where it is pulped before being shipped to Europe as part of the recycling process. It will soon return to the UK in the form of toilet paper or new copier paper. Your certificate of destruction also confirms that the shredded material has been recycled.
