Confidential Waste

Confidential Waste (Keep Secure at all Times!)

Departments who have shredders should shred all confidential paper, clear waste sacks can be used for shredded paper, and tied bags placed in your waste collection point ready for pick up by the portering team.
Departments that do not have shredders and have confidential paper requiring disposal should request yellow waste bags from Estates Liaison Line.

Confidential paper should be bagged up and secured locally by each department. When there is sufficient bags ready for collection please contact Estates Liaison Line and request the portering team collect.

Areas generating large & regular volumes of confidential waste should contact Estates Liaison Line requesting a lockable bin.

A final reminder that all departments should ensure confidential material is stored securely until shredded or collected for disposal by Estates
