Regular Monthly/Weekly Shredding Service
If you require the regular collection of your confidential waste for secure shredding, we can help. Our off-site shredding service collects the full bins and leaves new empty ones so there is no interruption to your regular service.
Your Service. Your Choice
One-off/Adhoc Shredding Service
Many companies find before or during an office move to be an ideal time to clear out the unnecessary files. We can deliver as many bins as you require, and collect them when you’re done. It saves you from having to move unnecessary boxes.
Our fleet has various sized vehicles to accommodate the biggest and smallest collections. Most have tail lifts to ease in the delivery of secure shredding/confidential waste bins.

Shredding Bin Size Comparison
Barcoded. Locked. Secure
The bins are designed in such a way that no unauthorised access can be gained to the contents. The paper slot in the lid is large enough for approx. 1/3 of a ream of standard paper to be inserted but not large enough for a person’s hand. The bins are delivered locked and our staff do not have access to the keys.
The keys to these bins are kept in a locked safe at the depot and are signed in and out when accessed by staff who hold the security clearance.
The individual numbers for these bins are printed on the customer delivery and collection dockets, this allows for you, the customer, to have sight of which bins are being delivered or collected and which bins are still on site. All of our secure shredding bins are barcoded and numbered to allow for ease of tracking throughout our system.
These individual identifiers are used for all paperwork pertaining to the delivery, collection and destruction of the contents of these bins. They can, therefore, be tracked throughout the entire process, from your office, to secure shredding site and back again to our central depots.
Liveried trucks with satellite tracking
We operate a fleet of various sized vehicles; Luton vans, 7.5t trucks. 18t trucks and curtain siders. The majority of our fleet, with the exception of the curtain siders, have tail lifts to ease in the delivery of secure shredding/confidential waste bins.
No delivery or collection is too large or too small.
The vehicles that make up our fleet are all liveried with our logo and branding, so you will never be in doubt who is collecting your secure shredding/confidential waste bins.
All of our vehicles are satellite tracked and it is possible to see where they have been at any given time of day.
Our tracking system refreshes every 30 seconds, so we get up to the minute information on where our trucks are.
All of our vehicles have immobilisers fitted.
Our entire fleet conforms to FORS standards.
Uniformed and security checked staff
Our staff all wear branded uniform.
Their uniform also includes; safety shoes/boots, hi-vis vests and all staff have access to full PPE at all times.
All staff who carry out the delivery and collections of secure shredding/confidential waste bins are security vetted and passed through the Disclosure Scotland [https://www.mygov.scot/disclosure-types/] process.
All staff carry on their person a security card which has the following information:
Depot based in
These details can all be checked against a database held at Pluscrates head office.
The addition of security cards adds to the peace of mind we offer all of our customers. They allow you, the customer, to know who is handling your data and be able to check authenticity by simply picking up the phone and speaking to a member of the head office staff.
As a company, we have over ten years’ experience in point to point delivery and collection. Our staff are all experienced in this type of delivery and spend the majority of their working time in and out of offices.
We offer a point to point delivery service on all of our secure shredding/confidential waste bin services. We will deliver the bin directly to the required space in your office and collect it from there also, no need to bring it down to the loading bay.
If you are using the bins for a site clearance or annual clear out of document storage, we will deliver directly to the floor, room or storage container not just to the entrance. We can also collect them from here negating the need to move them to the entrance/loading bay yourself.
Our bins are designed to be easy to use. They sport and handle at the rear and a set of wheels. So if you are moving your office around or need access to a point obscured by the secure shredding/confidential waste bin, then you can simply roll it to a different part of your office.
When placed squarely on the floor, these bins will not roll about and will only move when you require them to.
That being said, they are large enough to hold 20,000 sheets of paper and if someone you do not recognise as one of our staff were to try and remove the bin, they would not do so without drawing a considerable amount of attention to themselves. This is a major plus point over some of the smaller and more discreet confidential waste bins on the market.

Archive Storage Clearance
Businesses often use archive storage facilities to file any data which does not need to be accessed immediately, but which need to be kept on file.
It is often necessary to clear out this information. Perhaps due to a move, a restructure of the business or merely because retention periods for this data have lapsed. We can help you with this.
We can arrange to deliver as many secure shredding/confidential waste bins to your archiving/storage facility as you require. Once they are full you can arrange for us to come and pick them up. As with all of our other services, we will deliver the bins to the location within the storage facility you require, not simply to the front door or loading bay. We will also collect from the desired location within the building, keeping the security of your data stored
Secure destruction certificate
We know that it is not always enough to state that you are carrying out a procedure, often it is necessary for businesses to show that they are following policies and legislation. As part of any of our secure shredding services, you will receive a certificate of destruction for your confidential waste.
This certificate will be emailed to your nominated email address after the destruction has been carried out. It will show you the date that the destruction occurred, the address that the destruction occurred at and signature of the member of staff who carried out the destruction.
These certificates of destruction are not only emailed to you, they are also scanned and attached to the contract number on our system which relates to your collection of secure shredding/confidential waste bins. This allows you to be able to access it at any time either by requesting a copy from our admin team, or logging onto our customer extranet and retrieving a copy of the scanned certificate yourself.
If you have lost the certificate of destruction, we will be happy to provide you with a replacement copy for your records.

We can deliver as many bins as you need, for as long as you require, then we simply collect them for shredding. Nice and easy.
