Confidential waste refers to any kind of information or material that conveys sensitive or private information that is required to be protected from unauthorised access or disclosure.

It's important that confidential waste is handled and destroyed correctly to prevent data breaches, identity theft, or other threats that could lead to the harm of individuals or organisations.
