Office Consoles

Keeping Your Office Paperwork Secure

With the increasing pressures on business's to ensure that confidential client information is not on show in open bins within the workplace, companies are now looking to provide confidential waste collection areas within their offices and corridors. The practice of allowing waste paper to be put into a normal waste bin is just not an option these days for the many companies. Lockable office consoles are a very sensible solution. The consoles can also be used for general paper, envelopes and any card folders that can assist you with meeting your environmental policy. The consoles must not be used for food, metals or plastic waste.

Modern Office Consoles

An office console is a modern piece of furniture measuring 33.5" High x 21.5" Wide and 15.5" Deep. It can be supplied in several colours but beech seems to be the most popular and as a result Simply Shredding keeps these in stock. Each cabinet has a lockable front door and within the cabinet are four locating pegs onto which a shredding bag is secured in the lid of each bin there is a narrow cut out slot where your staff would insert any paperwork. Just underneath the lip of the main lid there is a locking mechanism. Normally we would keep all keys so that none of your staff can access the unit; although it is possible to let you have a copy should you require this.

Regular Monthly Collections

Simply Shredding normally collects the contents of the consoles every four weeks, usually on a pre-arranged date that works for you. Our staff will unlock the console, take out the filled bag within the console and replace it with an empty bag. This will take place with minimal fuss, noise or interruption. You can have just one bin or several bins on each floor of your office; subject to the number of staff that you employ.

Certificate of Destruction Issued

As part of our ongoing fulfilment of our quality programme we are obliged to issue a Certificate of Destruction for any confidential shredding every time that we collect the office consoles from your office. This will be emailed as a PDF document directly to the relevant person within your organisation. It will advise the quantity of bags that have been collected and shredded; on what date and who has carried this out.

How To Book An Office Console

If you think that providing an office console or consoles is going to be an answer to your confidential waste recycling issues for your company then contact your nearest Simply Shredding depot or email If on the other hand you would like a representative to visit your premises to determine the volume we will be more than happy to arrange this.
