Avoid packaging separation by using paper shredding sacks
Our shredding bags are manufactured from thick paper and are specifically designed for confidential waste collection and disposal. Equipped with a self- adhesive lip at the mouth of the bag, once filled they can be sealed securely. This tamper evident lip prevents unauthorised access as the entire sack can be shredded along with the contents, ensuring complete protection and confidentiality. This method of disposal is not only secure, but also cost effective as it eliminates the need to empty the paper sacks prior to shredding saving on unnecessary separation.
Can bags of shredded paper be recycled?
Generally speaking, local councils are not able to recycle shredded paper waste. This is due to the pieces of shredded paper being too small for the machines which sort and process recycling materials. Suggested uses for shredded documents include kindling for fires or animal bedding.
How to bag shredded paper for recycling
Most councils accept shredded paper for recycling, but it has to be free of contaminants such as glossed paper, staples or transparent windows. It must also be securely bagged and easily identified. Purpose-designed recycling sacks incorporate a sealing strip. The entire sack is then recycled without re-opening it, providing additional protection for your confidential paperwork.
Where can I get rid of bags of shredded paper?
Some local authorities will take bags of shredded waste paper away for recycling. It is best to check with your council. It is also possible to purchase bags for confidential shredding that are sent away to be processed, ensuring the safe and confidential disposal of sensitive materials.
Subject to a minimum order quantity paper shredding bags can be manufactured to your requirements. We are able to offer coloured printed paper sacks which can include logos, instructions for use and maximum fill lines.
