Secure confidential waste disposal service solution for home workers, offices, and personal document disposal.

Domestic Confidential Waste Disposal

With significantly higher numbers of personnel now working from home, companies have a duty of care to protect customers’ personal data.

As soon as this information becomes available in printed format, documents must be stored and ultimately disposed of in a manner that satisfies GDPR compliance. Domestic paper shredding machines cannot always be relied on to destroy documents sufficiently, and adding the shredded paper to domestic waste could be a breach of GDPR.

Remote Shred System for Ease of Use

Our patent-pending Remote Shred system addresses the requirements of personal confidential waste disposal in the working from home (WFH) environment. It is a compact, versatile solution that is an unobtrusive addition to the home office and evolves to meet your changing needs.

Each employee working from home is supplied with a single-use Remote Shred Console where discarded documents are held securely. While this is predominantly designed for paper documents, we can also accommodate small amounts of disks and flash drives within the waste paper.

When the console is full, your employee simply uses a smartphone app to scan a QR code on the console. We are immediately alerted as to the status and location of full consoles and arrange its collection directly by our own security vetted, insured personnel.

Your employee will be given a new console and you will be issued with a detailed Certificate of Destruction for the collected console, which will be processed through our own fully accredited confidential waste destruction plant.

For Household and Personal Needs

Avena’s domestic shredding services are not only for companies. With the trend to paperless and digital transactions and receipts, household paper waste and personal confidential documents are becoming less of a challenge. But, that being said, there are still many persons that prefer a paper bank statement or utility bill. In addition to this, there are certain legal and confidential documents that are still printed such as house deeds, personal wills, contracts etc.

Identity theft and identity cloning are on the rise and the best way to protect your identity and any confidential information is to destroy it completely to save it from falling into the wrong hands and being used by unscrupulous persons.

With Avena, you could collect all of your old and unneeded statements and other confidential documents and schedule an on-site or off-site shredding service and have the peace of mind that your confidential documents will be destroyed entirely and get a certificate to prove it.
