We are ideal for schools, colleges and universities that need to shred pupil records, staff records, medical records, school reports, staff application forms, financial records or pupil assessments.


Our one-time paper shredding service can handle whatever you throw at it, from invoices and loan applications, hard drives and electronic media to old marketing materials and promotional items. So make a fresh start and get rid of unwanted paperwork, product brochures, and outdated documents from your company.

Great White’s business shredding and recycling service provide businesses with one of the most secure, convenient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly methods available for destroying confidential documents. To safeguard private information, maintain legislative compliance and avoid breach-of-security situations that might result in negative publicity.

All Ireland organisations that handle customer data, including names, addresses, bank details, and email addresses, must comply with GDPR. For the retail and eCommerce sector, this can include a wealth of information such as signed receipts, refund paperwork, purchase information, warranty paperwork, items purchased on credit, and much more.

The pressure is to keep confidential paper and digital media assets closely managed and moved on through their entire lifecycle so that they do not take up valuable floor and filing space and do not fall into hands that should not have them.

On-site archives for storing correspondence, research, faculty business and so on are becoming a rarity, their care increasingly outsourced to records management businesses. And whether it’s clearing out defunct storage areas, destroying paper records that have been digitised or shredding documents whose retention duration is up, ensuring your data is protected from start to finish in the removal and shredding process is paramount.

That’s where working with a sector-experienced supplier, such as Great White, pays rewards. We know that speed, courtesy, compliance and efficiency are all vital to you – and we go the additional mile in making sure we meet your anticipations.

I love this service, in the space of a couple of minutes bags of paper, folders and documents all destroyed on-site and a certificate presented to prove EU compliance. Great service and Eamonn and David are very nice to deal with too! Have used their service a couple of times now and I couldn't recommend them enough! Fiona Mckenna Principle
