Commercial Waste Management

Commercial waste management is constantly changing and becoming ever more complex. It’s vital to get your company’s waste management right in order to stay on the correct side of the law.

All businesses have a legal responsibility under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and other related legislation to safely contain and legally dispose of any waste produced from your business. Not doing so could end up costing additional time and money that could be better spent elsewhere, or legal action against your organisation.

That’s where TJ Waste comes in. Why not let us manage your commercial waste for you? Together we’ll come up with a plan, tailored to the needs of your business, and take all the hassle (and the waste!) away.

Confidential waste

Confidential waste refers to the disposal of documents that contain private information about employees, customers and suppliers. Ensuring this is disposed of correctly by a reputable waste management company is paramount to avoid repercussions such as fraud, blackmail, or identity theft. Authorities can give out fines to businesses that aren’t disposing of confidential waste through the appropriate means. It can also damage a company’s reputation with future clients and employees if these documents and information are leaked.

We have listed below the documents that are classified as confidential waste, as a handy guide to ensure that you and your business are disposing of them correctly and safely.

  • Personnel files
    including CVs and application letters
  • Financial records
    such as order forms, invoices, bills, and statements
  • Health records
    including notes by medical professionals
  • Social care records
    such as letters, reports, and photographs.
  • Criminal Records
  • Business cards
  • ID badges
  • Security passes
  • Letters, memos, and other items containing names and addresses.
  • New business proposals
  • Business plans
  • Contracts
  • Used notebooks
  • Product samples or profiles
  • Research data
  • Diaries
  • Photographs

Collecting, storing and handling data in a physical format needs careful consideration, but our service guarantees to dispose of documents safely, legally and securely. Simply recycling or shredding files isn’t a foolproof solution.

Our collection service gives you the ability to securely dispose of documentation, with a guaranteed certificate of destruction – it’s safe, secure and fast and helps you to fulfil your data responsibilities. By investing in correct disposal, you’ll protect yourself from potential costly fines further down the line.

We deliver 50 litre secure bags to fill with your documentation, you fill them with unwanted sensitive or confidential waste documents, call us for collection and it’s all taken care of. Your fully verified certificate of destruction will be with you shortly after, giving you piece of mind that you’ve disposed of your data responsibly.
