At Highlander, we only offer an off site shredding service, onsite shredding trucks emit large amounts of CO2 and other air pollutants that are damaging to the environment and contribute to climate change.
All of our collected materials are returned to our East Kilbride recycling centre for shredding and 100% of our collected materials are recycled into new paper products.

The video below shows the process of our bag collection services.
At Highlander, we guarantee that all confidential waste will be shredded within 24 hours of receipt at our facility. All of this makes sure that you are meeting your GDPR requirements and your documents NEVER come back to bite you!
Finally, after the material has been shredded and baled prior to final recycling, a series of further checks are performed by the security shredding manager and shredding area supervisor as part of the material audit trail, from collection to destruction.
At this point, your destruction certificate – your guarantee that your material has been destroyed to EN15713 standards – is generated by the security shredding manager after all procedural checks are performed and verified and this certificate is finally signed off by a company director. This process gives you peace of mind that your confidential material is 100% shredded by the Highlander team!
We also have full Professional Indemnity, Public Liability and Product Liability insurances for your extra peace of mind and fully alarmed and CCTV monitored premises.
