Here at Doxbond, we understand that criminals will do whatever it takes to get their hands on your data – including rooting through bins in search of documents that include your personal details (e.g. your name, date of birth, address, contact details, bank details, passport number, driver’s license number, etc). 100% of paper & card is recycled at Doxbond Cambridge.
That’s why, to ensure your identity is protected, we recommend you destroy all personal documents that you no longer need. This includes:
- Bank statements
- Credit card statements
- Utility bills
- Phone bills
- Payslips, p45s and p60s
- Tax returns
- Insurance documents
- Medical records
- Envelopes with your address on
- Boarding passes
- Hotel itinerary
- Photo ids
- Old photos
And (by far!) the most secure way of destroying these is domestic shredding.
What is domestic paper shredding, and who can benefit?
Domestic shredding is a very secure way to dispose of sensitive documents within your home. It’s both quick and easy and prevents your data from being lost or, even worse, stolen and used fraudulently.
Of course, you could invest in a home office shredder and shred documents yourself, whenever you like. However, many people opt for domestic shredding services when they have too much personal paperwork to securely dispose of on their own. And that’s where we come in.
Our home shredding services are ideal if you’re:
- Clearing out the attic
- Disposing of the paperwork of someone who has died
- Moving to a new house
- Organising or decluttering your home
- Running a business from home
- Working with sensitive documents
We collect hundreds of bags of confidential waste from homes for shredding every day, so no papers sit around for weeks on end. There are no minimum requirements and – unlike small domestic shredders – our state-of-the-art machines can shred all types of paper, including newspapers, magazines and stapled documents.
How does domestic shredding work?
The way domestic paper shredding works is straightforward.
You can either fill your own bags and boxes with documents in your own time or, if you prefer, we can supply you with boxes.
Don’t worry about removing papers from ring binders, plastic wallets or folders – we can take care of this for you. Our shredder will also destroy paperclips and staples along with the paper.
As soon as you’re ready, get in touch with us and we’ll visit your home, collect your unwanted paperwork and transport it securely to our facility. We will then store it safely until it is shredded on-site by our partner company’s industrial shredders – capable of shredding huge amounts of documents within minutes.
All shredded remains are then recycled and you will be provided with a Certificate of Destruction. The certificate is legal proof that you have ensured the security of your personal (and business-related) documents, and typically includes the date and time at which your papers were destroyed.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to witness your documents and papers being shred, this too can be arranged. We offer a range of on-site services and will happily bring our home shredding services to you.
