The Shred Centre – Shredded Week – 16th September 2019


That felt like a quick weekend … guess the saying goes ‘time flies when you are having fun’ is true! Over the weekend some of our team members took part in the 5K Gung-Ho obstacle course and what a great laugh it was! The weather was on our side too, a little chilly but no rain! Both our managing Directors took part too, Natalie and Patrick and it was a great time to bond and do team building! We didn’t manage to get a lot of photos when we were running the course but we manage to get a few before we even started. See below our happy faces, it was tough but it was fun











Still aching from the weekend’s antics! But we are back to providing our customers with a great service as usual and we have drivers in the Newcastle area today carrying out on-site for our regular customers and we have the off-site vehicle out in Leeds today serving new and regular customers! See below feedback from a customer we carried out off-site shredding too, 7x pallets in total!

‘Just wanted to say how impressed we were with the service last Friday; very quick (about 20 mins) and incident-free.’ Great end to a great day!



It has been a hectic day for the warehouse staff getting all the bales ready for the load going out but they did it and that’s another 52 bales of paper gone out ready to be recycled 100% into loo roll!



Feels like it should only be Tuesday! This week has absolutely flown over. We have our drivers out in our local area of Durham and Bishop Auckland today, servicing new customers and regular customers. They even have the sun on their side today, so we can’t complain about the weather seeing as though it is the middle of September! Here’s to hoping our Winter isn’t going to be too bad! The girls in the office have been busy dealing with new inquiries and contracts. See below some more feedback received from a customer, which was sent to Leigh. Keep up the good work all!

Dear Leigh,

Just a note to say how impressed I was with the service. Your Operative was friendly, cheerful and capable. It was a pleasure to deal with him. The service represented good value for a good service. Thank you.



That is another week done and dusted! And a great week it has been. We have an amazing team who give it their all every time, whether that be the drivers, the office staff or the warehouse staff without any of them we wouldn’t continually grow as we do, so again a massive thank you to everyone! Each person has their role but at the end of the day, we all come together to be one team! We leave you with this positive note …  

“Individual commitment to a group effort–that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” 

Happy Friday all, The Shred Centre Team.
