A new high-capacity paper shredder has been bought by Printwaste Recycling & Shredding.
An overall £800,000 investment has been put into the company that also includes a Meltog PS74 machine.
The shredder is more energy-efficient through the use of state-of-the-art electronic controls and provides an additional four-tonnes per hour capacity for the secure destruction of confidential documents.
It has been installed in tandem with existing machinery, and its contra-rotating shaft cutters produce a consistent particle size to a high security level.
Once the paper is shredded, it is baled on site before being sent for recycling into new paper products.
Printwaste managing director Don Robins said: “Growing demand from more clients requiring secure data destruction services has prompted our investment in this state-of-the-art machinery, which maximises efficiency with greater throughput while maintaining the required particle size. This allows for future anticipated growth in this fast-growing sector.”
