How do I know it’s secure?

Every day we receive questions like ‘Where does my confidential waste go?’ and ‘How do I know it’s secure?’

Let me answer those questions…

Is it secure?

YES!! It is totally secure. Each year, we are audited by NQA to ensure our compliance both to our own ISO 9001 system and the specifications set out under EN 15713. What this means is that, the facility, equipment & machinery, vehicles and staff all meet the required standards. With 18 CCTV Cameras surrounding the inside and outside of DGD, we operate the largest and most secure destruction facility in Ireland.

  • All our vehicles are slam locked and fitted with a GPS tracking system.
  • Our staff are professionally trained and Garda vetted.
  • We operate a same day shred policy.
  • Destruction Certificate provided after material is processed.
Where does it go?

Once the paper is securely transported to our Destruction Facility in Raheen, the material is loaded straight onto a conveyor belt. Here it mixes with other paper and gets transferred into the Industrial Shredder. Our Industrial Shredder can shred up to 5 tonnes per hour.

After all the material is destroyed, it is the baled and shipped for recycling to the UK.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to ring 1850 491 333 and we will happily answer any of your queries.
