Commercial & Ad-hoc Collections

Covid-19 Update:
Our shredding service is now contact-free.
Please phone to arrange your collection slot and ensure your bags are brought to the entrance of your building at the agreed collection time.
Contact our friendly team if you have any queries regarding our contact-free shredding service.
Thank you for your co-operation and stay safe everyone.

We pride ourselves in offering secure shredding services that are suited to your specific needs and requirements. We understand that organisations need to ensure that confidential information is handled appropriately and have specific and secure data protection systems in place which we can help you to implement.

To drop off your paper, please see our Drop Off Section on the website. Our two collection services are regular cabinet collections or ad-hoc collections.

Regular Cabinet Collection
Our most popular service is the monthly cabinet collection service whereby we situate one or more secure cabinets in your office/premises. These are used by members of staff to dispose of confidential waste on a daily basis. These cabinets are locked to prevent any unauthorised access, (though you will be given a key for emergencies). Our collection team will collect on a regular basis, usually monthly, and change the waste sacks in the cabinets replacing the full sack for an empty one. We will then return the full sacks to our shredding facility for secure shredding and disposal. You will be provided with a certificate of destruction for all waste sacks collected and disposed of. Invoices are emailed out (to reduce paper waste) once your shredding cabinet bag has been collected and shredded.

Cabinet Prices:
Cabinet Collection: £15 + VAT per collection (which can be as frequently as required e.g. weekly, two-weekly, monthly).
Monthly Cabinet Hire Fee: £4 + VAT per month. 
One-off Installation Fee: £20 + VAT. 

Discounts may apply for 2+ cabinets.  Cabinets remain the property of UShred. Please call our helpdesk (0151 336 2122) to discuss further details and any questions you may have. We try to work round and accommodate for any specific requirements e.g. specific collection days and times.

Ad-Hoc Collection
This is an alternative service for companies who have a more sporadic need for waste disposal, e.g. ones where there is an annual or occasional event that generates a lot of paper. If this is more appropriate to your business we can supply our standard shredding sacks which contain up to 16kg of paper. You can then fill the sacks and let us know when they are ready for collection. Alternatively we can collect them in archived sized boxes if this is more convenient however we do not provide the boxes. Please call in to pick some sacks up or give us a call to arrange to have some sacks dropped off.

We request that there is nothing in the cabinets/sacks/boxes apart from paper. We do not accept plastic wallets, metal, food waste, plastic, nails, pens, glass or any other non-paper waste. Additional charges may be applied if these items are found in your shredding.
