We contacted Matthews Shredding about three years ago, we needed to dispose of a backlog in confidential waste which had accumulated as a result of persistent failing manual shredders over a period of time. Shredding in house was costing us staff hours and money replacing equipment. Matthews had numerous options of bins and storage available and we chose what suited our office space. We have not looked back. I recommend Matthews Shredding as their service is excellent, they are usually with us for collection within 24 hours and are great value for money.

This office has been using Matthews Confidential Shredding since May 2015 for all our commercial shredding and I would be very happy to recommend their services. The bulk of our shredding involves data of a very sensitive and personal nature and we feel very confident that Matthews securely handles all our documents and supplies us with the necessary documents to ensure we comply with all legislation.
