Shredded Week WC-10/6/19 – The Shred Centre

Its been another busy week at the shred centre


After a wet weekend, it is nice to start the week with some sunshine, it tells me we are in for a good week at The Shred Centre! We started our Monday off by sending Matthew, our driver to Birmingham to service our regular customers, ensuring all of their confidential waste is securely picked up and transported back to our depot for secure shredding. Check Matthew out in action below at our regular customer, Crossflight. Our driver Tim, is on the bin truck picking up the printers waste, after a busy weekend. Another busy but successful Monday – here’s to a great week! One team, One dream!

Did you know?

Did you know that every tonne of recycled paper will save 4000 KW of energy, 380 gallons of oil, 17 trees, 3 cubic metres of space in landfill, and 7000 gallons of water!


With Monday done and dusted, we roll into Tuesday and what a busy day it has been! Check our head driver Matthew below in action, servicing our regular customer ‘Peacock Medical’ with the onsite vehicle. We shred at their premises so that the customer can watch and be sure all their sensitive data is securely destroyed. In the office, our MD Patrick has written a blog about what to consider when classifying data as confidential at work, head over to our website or social media platforms to learn more, interesting read!


Another cold and wet day at our North East depot, however we are very much looking forward to the ‘heatwave’ next week – here’s to hoping! The rain hasn’t stopped our team though, with all our drivers out and about collecting confidential waste from new and regular customers, as well as shredding on site, all the while keeping their spirits up and not letting the weather get them down. In the office today, we have had Peter, our Head of Operations, catch us all on camera saying our little bit about what roles we do etc. Keep a look out for the finished video on our website! We have also had our new ‘meet the team’ photographs done today, keep a look out for these on our website too!


Still raining! We may have to send our driver’s out in boats if the rain does not stop! Our driver Matthew has been on the Newcastle run today, where we are a regular at the Generator Studio site, with three of our customers in the same building! #spotthebluetruck

The ladies in the office have been busy too, see below feedback from one of our customer’s – great work from all of our team!

Our social media platforms have been busy this week too with blogs being posted from our MD and Leigh… follow us on social media for daily updates to see what our team get up to.


Even with the rain, our team still have that Friday feeling! Our drivers are out in Manchester today in  the blue onsite vehicle, as well as our orange truck. Give give our driver’s a beep if you spot us. To finish off the week, we have awarded Tim with our ‘driver of the week’ award. Tim, well done! You have certainly earned it with all your hard work this week, providing our customers with a reliable and secure shredding service, thank you! Doesn’t he look over the moon (below).

That’s another week over with and we are looking forward to next week already – No Monday blues with our team!
