Veolia Environmental Services - Secure destruction services

Confidential waste and secure destruction service

Many industries are beginning to recycle or dispose of waste more securely. Our network of ISO and BSIS secure destruction sites can take care of your confidential waste.

We can provide a safe and secure product recycling or destruction service, which guarantees finite destruction of a wide variety of goods and products from confidential data to out of date produce.

Our ISO accredited facilities offer an innovative service to an extensive range of customers including:

  • Food and drink manufacturers
  • Supermarkets
  • Dairies
  • Logistics and distribution facilities
  • Breweries
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • HM Revenue and Customs

We can process large volumes of material, which can be accepted on pallets or in skip containers. You can either deliver waste products directly to the site, or we can arrange collection and transportation on your behalf.

Materials include:

  • Wines and beers
  • Beverages
  • Food waste
  • Branded retail product
  • Non hazardous medical products/toiletries

Our clients may have a variety of reasons for seeking finite destruction of their products, including:

  • Product recall
  • Inferior quality products
  • Passed shelf life product
  • Damaged stock
  • Incorrectly labelled product
  • Outlet for disposal of liquid waste

A totally secure process

The secure destruction service includes 24-hour CCTV camera surveillance, which closely monitors all areas of the site. If you wish, you can witness the destruction of your product, or we can make a DVD recording for your records.  A certificate of destruction will be issued for your further assurance.

Safe, and environmentally sound

Recycling and recovery can help to minimise your environmental impact, while maintaining confidentiality by ensuring the product has lost its identity.  Wherever possible, we will reclaim packaging material including steel, aluminium, glass, cardboard wood and plastic.

Any liquid generated as a result of the secure destruction process is recovered and then recycled or treated. Treatment includes rendering, which is approved and controlled by Defra.

Waste products can also be destroyed at our state-of-the-art Energy Recovery Facility.  Heat created from the process is converted to steam and used to generate heat and electricity for local homes.
