Certificate of Destruction
Confidential waste is defined as any material that contains sensitive information about an individual or organisation, such as names, addresses, contact details and financial information.When people think of confidential waste they typically think of bank statements or client records, but something as seemingly insignificant as a handwritten post-it note can be just as much confidential waste – and just as much a threat to data protection. Understanding what constitutes confidential waste is crucial to the secure and efficient disposal of your sensitive information.
Shredding your own confidential waste can be very time-consuming, often taking valuable members of staff away from more productive work. Proficient office shredders and on-site shredding companies also often come with hefty price tags. The only way to guarantee complete destruction of documents without breaking the bank is with our lockable confidential waste bins. We offer them as part of our document shredding service to keep your confidential waste safe and your team free to focus on what really matters.

The Data Protection Act has required UK businesses to securely collect, store and destroy confidential data since 1998. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in the Information Commissioners Office levying fines of up to £500,000 or even stricter sanctions for serious breaches. More recently, in May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced to bolster already stringent data protection laws. This legislation placed a greater emphasis on the documentation needed by businesses in order to prove their compliance with Data Protection Laws, specifically regarding proof of the proper disposal of confidential waste.
One of the key tenets of this act compels businesses to only employ the services of professional, certified waste disposal companies with appropriately trained and vetted staff when destroying their confidential waste. The strict rules that govern confidential waste disposal highlight the importance of hiring a specialised, certified and GDPR compliant service-provider such as Flexible Storage Solutions.
