Make sure you are following the best practices for product disposal in your business – the last thing you want is for products to fall into the wrong hands.
Product disposal can be a tricky process filled with legal landmines. That’s why, if you need products, such as credit cards or electronic media, destroyed, it’s best to leave it to the professionals so you can get on with running your business!
What is Product Disposal
Product disposal means that disposal of usually small, yet important items that require a higher level of care than simply throwing them away in the rubbish.
Generally, this would apply to items that contain sensitive information, like old credit cards, which can result in catastrophic consequences in the wrong hands.
To ensure that these products are 100% destroyed and no longer pose any threat, we use a sophisticated and advanced shredding system that turns whatever it’s fed into an unintelligible mess that cannot be put back together. These scraps are then recycled.
We can complete the entire process at your worksite so that your products won’t ever leave your building. We can also take them to our secure shredding facility, whereby we guarantee they won’t be seen again. It doesn’t matter how small your load is, if you need it shredded, we’ll be there!

What are the laws?
In Australia there are a number of fundamental privacy laws. One of the most important to remember is that you must ‘de-identify or delete unsolicited personal information as soon as is practical.’ This basically means that any client, employee or other personal information must be taken care of once it is no longer needed. If you ignore this law, and you are the victim of a data breach, severe consequences will apply.
