A new UNTHA RS100 shredder has been installed at BPR Group facility in Rainham, Greater London, to improve its confidential paper destruction service.
BPR Group, which operates under the Paper Round and Secure Paper brands, has said it is generating revenues of more than £100 per tonne on shredded paper, and expects to see a return on its investment in four years.
The new UNTHA RS100 shredder is enabling BPR to process five to six tonnes of confidential waste paper every hour.
This thorough, high torque, slow speed shredding process complies with secure shredding standards without destroying the paper fibre content. Once material is drawn into the shredder’s main cutters, it is both pre-shredded and re-shredded in a single pass. Material that does not fall through the screen is transferred to the secondary cutters before being fed back into the cutting chamber for re-shredding.
BPR Group director Alison Roe said: “We are extremely pleased with the new shredding unit which gives us increased security and peace of mind for our clients by bringing our shredding process in-house.
“It also gives us control over the output of shredded paper from which we are now able to generate a revenue.”
