Printwaste Recycling & Shredding, based in Cheltenham, U.K., says it has purchased its third shredding vehicle to strengthen its confidential data destruction services for customers in the Gloucestershire area and wider Midlands region of the United Kingdom.
The shredding truck came from New Zealand-based Axo Shredders. It has the capability to shred as many as 200 archive boxes per hour. 
In addition to mobile shredding services, Printwaste Recycling & Shredding offers plant-based destruction services.
According to Printwaste, the investment in the new truck is in response to strong demand from its customers for a cost-effective secure shredding service that ensures clients’ meet the compliance requirements set forth by the U.K.’s Data Protection Act 1988 relating to the processing of personal and financial data.
Don Robins, managing director of Printwaste, says, “This bigger vehicle gives us the ability to cater for higher volume security shredding requirements, particularly for larger companies generating a lot of material on a regular basis. All shredded paper is returned to our secure facility and sent for recycling back into new paper products.
“It also means we can offer a quicker and more efficient service as the increased efficiency means less time that the vehicle needs to be on site. This faster turnaround is an advantage, particularly for busier sites and where clients wish to oversee the shredding process, saving them valuable time,” Robins adds.
Printwaste has three locations. Its headquarters location is home to its document destruction services. The company’s two other plants are focused on providing recycling services for a range of materials the company handles, including paper, plastics, glass and metals.
