What is confidential waste?
Confidential waste is generally any materials that are no longer wanted or needed by your business. They tend to contain information that is covered by GDPR and should not be left lying around the office for unauthorised personnel to get their hands on!
Any documents that contain sensitive information requires careful disposal, take confidential waste disposal in Letchworth, for instance.
Importance of confidential waste disposal.
Security should be paramount for any business and with this, we mean protecting your client’s confidential information too. Failure to dispose of confidential information in the right way will have a negative impact on your business, here’s how:
- Prosecutions under the law
- Identity fraud
- Copying or sharing of personal information
- Loss of reputation
- Leaked data
- Expensive fines
Do you want to make sure that personal and confidential waste is disposed of securely?
Within your home, you can easily shred unwanted mail, bills or receipts using a home/office shredder. The paper that is shredded can then be recycled or reused, allowing you to maintain a clean, tidy and organised home.
In the workplace, this depends on how many documents you produce at your company. For Letchworth businesses who generate a substantial amount of paper documents, it’s not always recommended that you use an office shredder as this will cause the machine to burn out before you’ve even finished. As well as this, a home or office shredder will only allow you to shred a few pieces of paper at a time and then you’ll need to wait for the machine to cool down, making it a very long process!
