Security reel or branded paper destruction

security reel splitting

Highlander International recycling was formed in 2002, to fulfil the needs of recycling companies in identifying, exploring and ultimately serving new markets both at home and overseas for a wide range of recovered paper grades.

In response to the increasing security requirements of organisations in terms of both data and brand protection, Highlander has introduced a new service to the market that allows paper reels or sheets of a sensitive nature, to be split, security shredded and pulped for recycling, all in house by Highlander trained employees, in a fast, diligent and professional manner. This service is uniquely tailored to meet the data and brand protection requirements of a wide range of organisations such as: Paper mills that make watermarked, branded or security papers; Fulfilment companies that print high volumes of data sensitive materials such as bank statements et al; Convertors with reels that cannot be unwound or remarketed as second life paper; Recycling companies who collect small amounts of security reels and any organisation with waste or redundant reels that cannot return onto the 2nd life paper market, or which contains sensitive information that must be destroyed in line with the requirements of the data protection act 1998.

Suppliers of brand or data sensitive reels are welcome to view our reel splitting and shredding services in practice. Once the reel has been safely and efficiently split, Highlander perform the shredding element of the work 100% in house. Our employees - who are fully vetted to BS7858 standards - take the sensitive material split by our machinery and diligently feed this into our industrial Hammermill shredding machine, which is capable of securely destroying up to 7 tons per hour of material. The operation is conducted under the guise of CCTV and a destruction certificate is provided for every batch of sensitive reel or pallet material received from our customers. After shredding, the material is baled and then shortly afterwards, despatched to paper mills for final recycling and re-pulping. A full audit trail of the process is available and we would be delighted to provide more information on this at your request. We would be delighted to either collect or receive delivery of security reels at your convenience, all managed and handled to EN15713 standards for confidential or barnded waste shredding and recycling.
