Our product destruction service is for customers with any redundant branded or security items that need to be safely and securely destroyed, in an environmentally friendly manner.
We offer a complete and documented audit trail from the initial receipt of material – either collected or delivered – to the final issue of our Certificate of Destruction, all performed to EN15713 standards.
The entire destruction process is performed under the guise of digital CCTV and using an innovative bar-code system as a means of electronic audit trail. We are confident that the security, professionalism and integrity of this service cannot be matched by any of our competitors. Customers are welcome to visit the operations and see their items being destroyed in person, all in the comfort of our new mezzanine viewing area!
After the customer gives us a description of the goods for destruction and the quantity of each item, all material will be bar-code labelled at source by the customer after Highlander supplies the label via e-mail as an easy-to-use PDF document. These bar-code labels simply need to be printed by customers and attached to the items destined for destruction. Where required, spare bar-codes can be supplied by Highlander at a moment’s notice if additional materials are identified for destruction. Each collection vehicle containing material destined for destruction will be sealed before transit, with a numbered seal to maintain the integrity of the collection vehicle and its contents and this seal number will form an integral part of the electronic audit trail.
All vehicles Highlander use to collect material for destruction come with GPS tracking as standard to enable the movement of your goods to be monitored from point of collection, to final delivery to our destruction centre. The material is then unloaded and will be stored in a designated, secure area awaiting destruction away from non-security materials, to eliminate the possibility of items for destruction being mixed up with items destined for conventional recycling. A full audit trail will exist for the entire process, culminating in the issuing of a destruction certificate, within 24 hours of the actual destruction of your material.
The system itself has standard features to enhance and ensure security such as remote access CCTV, employee background checks to BS7858, 2 fenced, locked and controlled destruction areas with fob controlled security access and United Kingdom Security Shredding Association (UKSSA) external accreditation – our service is more destructive than a great white and we are here to ensure your branded materials NEVER come back to bite you!
