Q: How do I get rid of sensitive documents?

The most secure and easy way to get rid of sensitive documents is acquiring the services of a professional shredding company.

Garda vetted, adequately trained staff will pick up your data and carry out their destruction fully complying with all certified procedures.

Q: Why Should My Company Shred Documents?

Every company has a legal responsibility to protect their client’s sensitive and confidential information and prevent it from being stolen and fall into the wrong hands.

Not correctly handling sensitive and classified documentation represents a legal risk to the company as businesses need to comply with GDPR rules and regulations.

At DGD Shredding, our secure on-site & off-site shredding services can help businesses meet their secure shredding obligation.

Q: Where can I shred documents near me?

DGD Shredding offers shredding and destruction services throughout the whole of Ireland. We provide weekly nationwide shredding services for both off-site shredding and on-site shredding.

Whether you’re in need of regular or on-demand shredding, we can tailor our services to satisfy your shredding needs.

Q: Can you provide us with containers to collect our shredding?

Bags, lockable wheelie bins and consoles are provided by DGD Shredding Free of Charge so that all confidential data and other shredding materials are securely collected in the containers.

Q: My paper is in boxes, do I have to transfer into bags?

Not at all. We can also charge per box or weight if required. You can arrange a call with a member of our sales team to agree a fixed price on the amount of boxes you have.

Q: Do I have to remove the paper from folders, staples, hard backs etc?

No, you can leave the material as it’s presented. We’ll take all lever arch files, folders, hard backs and any other paper-based material you have. This not only saves you time but also ensures total confidentiality.

Q: What happens once the paper is collected?

A trained and Garda vetted member of our team will securely transport the material back to our Destruction Facility in Limerick. We operate a same day shred policy so you can be sure all material will be destroyed the day of collection. An invoice will then be issued along with a Destruction Certificate.

Q: Is shredded paper recycled?

Yes, here at DGD Shredding, all shredded paper is sent for recycling and is transformed into tissue products such as kitchen roll and toilet paper.

Q: What is the easiest and most secure way to destroy a hard drive?

Smashing your hard drive with a hammer, degaussing or demagnetising won’t prevent from potentially having the data inside stolen. Hard drive shredding is the most secure method of ensuring the effective destruction of the hard drive and that all sensitive information is irretrievable.

Here at DGD Shredding, we provide certificates of destruction for hard drive and media destruction.

Q: How can I pay?

You can pay by cash, cheque, or bank transfer. We also can take your credit card details over the phone. Our standard terms of payment are 21 days.

Q: I’m not sure how much I have.

We can have our secure bags and ties delivered free of charge to help you quantify the material. When filled, seal the bag with the cable tie and call us to arrange a collection.
