Bolton’s new mobile shredding vehicle

Ipswich-based recycling specialists Bolton Brothers Ltd is expanding its shredding service with the introduction of a mobile unit costing in excess of £130,000. The company have been providing a confidential off-site shredding service throughout the region for over 30 years.

Commercial director, Reuben Bolton said: “We are introducing this new mobile shredding service as a direct result of customer demand. On-site shredding is extremely cost-effective when it comes to disposal of confidential documentation.”

He added: “We can tailor this service to meet customer needs either by scheduled visits or on demand. Our new mobile paper shredding service will guarantee the destruction of all physical documentation before leaving their premises. We also issue a certificate to confirm the destruction of documents. As an added bonus all the shredded paper is recycled.”

Bolton’s new mobile shredding vehicle is capable of shredding up to 1,500kg of paper per hour. All the shredded waste is compacted in a special locked compartment at the rear of the vehicle. At Bolton’s’ state-of-the-art recycling centre in Great Blakenham, the material is then baled and sent off for recycling at UK paper mills to be repulped into new tissue products. This shredding service fully complies with BS EN15713 Secure Destruction of Confidential Material, the standard specified by the United Kingdom Security Shredding Association of which Bolton Brothers are founding members.
