In response to the increasing security requirements of organisations in terms of both data and brand protection, Highlander has introduced a destruction service to the market that allows paper reels or sheets of a sensitive or branded nature, to be split, security shredded and recycled by Highlander trained employees, in a fast, diligent and professional manner. This service is uniquely tailored to meet the data and brand protection requirements of a wide range of organisations such as:

  • Paper mills that make watermarked, branded or security papers;
  • Fulfilment companies that tend to print high volumes of data sensitive materials such as bank statements et al;
  • Convertors with reels that cannot be unwound or re-marketed as second life paper;
  • Recycling companies who collect small amounts of security reels and any organisation with waste or redundant reels that cannot return onto the 2nd life paper market, or which contains sensitive information that must be destroyed must be destroyed in line with the requirements of the Data Protection Act (2018) and GDPR
Suppliers of branded or data sensitive reels are welcome to view our reel splitting and shredding services in operation. Once the reel has been safely and efficiently split, Highlander perform the shredding element of the work 100% in house. Our employees – who are fully vetted to BS7858 standards – take the sensitive material split by our machinery and diligently feed this into our industrial shredding machinery, capable of securely destroying up to 7 tons of material per hour. The operation is conducted under the guise of CCTV and a destruction certificate is provided for every batch of material received from our customers. After shredding, the material is baled and then shortly afterwards, despatched to paper mills for final recycling and re-pulping. A full audit trail of the process is available and we would be delighted to provide more information on this at your request. We can either collect or receive delivery of material at your convenience, all managed and handled to EN15713 standards for confidential or branded waste shredding and recycling.

Please contact us directly to discuss any particular requirements you have and we guarantee the safest, most efficient and secure reel destruction service on the market, with competitive rates and first class overall service.
