Our Environmental Responsibility.

While security and confidential shredding services are our main focus, we take great pride in continually working towards enhancing the value of your brand through sustainability. All our working procedures are designed to help positively contribute to our environment.

Having met the ISO14001 requirements, we work closely alongside ISO auditors to ensure that we can prove positive environmental management structure and procedures are in place for the organisation. With our highly efficient custom-built shredding machinery, we have taken confidential paper shredding to the next level, and you can be assured that we are constantly working to improve our environmental sustainability.

Our Commitment To Security.

We take security seriously at Avena Group and we are always looking to improve our systems to ensure we are always providing the most secure shredding services to all major UK cities. We perform comprehensive BS7858 security vetting DBS checks on all our staff. Our customer service representatives will arrive at your office in an unmarked vehicle fully installed with 24/7 CCTV.

We have actively chosen not to brand our vehicles as we do not want the public to know that an Avena vehicle is involved in confidential waste disposal. All our vehicles are fully installed with CCTV and live satellite tracking whether on domestic paper shredding or other confidential shredding duties. When our customer service representatives conduct confidential waste collection at your office to collect your confidential data, they will securely remove it from the SECURALL units and zip tie the information to ensure that the materials remain completely safe whilst in transit. For ultra-high security, we can provide witnessed and on-site mobile shredding.

Securing The Future

Client Spotlight: Helping EE Secure Their IP.

Avena were delighted to support EE in their recent endeavour to destroy a large quantity of outdated end-of-life uniforms. In the process, we were able to convert discarded textiles into products that can be used in a wide range of applications. 

The Avena Ethos.

Our ethos is all about our clients, our processes, and our integrity. Our aim is to ensure that all our clients receive an excellent service, driven through innovation, knowledge, and the sharing of ideas around security and sustainability.

Avena’s comprehensive abilities and understanding of complete security and integrity practice ensure the protection of your business and clients.

Our business is about protection. Protecting you, your business, your brand, your assets, and your clients. The world today is driven by technology making it easier for fraudsters to undertake sophisticated data and security breaches. Ultimately, it comes down to the awareness and attitude towards the protection of the items that are of value to organisations and individuals.

Often it is the security and data breaches that become the most costly expense to the business and the individuals concerned.
