Confidential waste disposal FAQs

What is confidential waste?
Confidential waste is any waste that contains sensitive or personal information that could be used to harm someone if it fell into the wrong hands. This type of waste can include financial information, medical records, legal documents, and other sensitive materials.
Why is confidential waste disposal important?
Confidential waste disposal is important because it helps to protect sensitive information from unauthorised access. If confidential waste is not disposed of properly, it could be intercepted by criminals or other unauthorised individuals who could use the information to harm someone.
What are the different methods of confidential waste disposal?
There are a number of different methods of confidential waste disposal. Some common methods include:
  • Shredding - Shredding is the most common method of confidential waste disposal. It involves using a cross-cut shredder to cut the waste into small pieces that cannot be reassembled.
  • Incineration - Incineration is a process that burns waste at high temperatures. This method destroys the waste and makes it impossible to recover any information from it.
  • Chemical treatment - Chemical treatment involves using chemicals to destroy the waste. This method is often used for electronic waste, such as hard drives and CDs.
How should I dispose of confidential waste?
Confidential waste should always be disposed of in a secure manner. This means that it should be shredded, incinerated, or chemically treated before it is disposed of in a landfill. Looking for a confidential waste collection? Get in touch with our teams at NRC and we’ll be able to help.

Handling more than just confidential waste disposal

At NRC we are well-equipped to handle a full range of confidential waste. Let us help you sort yours into containers, save on your confidential waste costs and promote your green credentials in the process. Here’s a range of business waste we dispose of:

Commercial Waste Disposal

General Waste

We’ll collect your non-recyclable items and aim to treat them in the most eco-responsible way. In the interests of transparency, you can always see how we disposed of your general waste with your service report.


Mixed Recycling

Our mixed paper, card, plastics, and metal collection services allow you to commit to your recycling goals with the minimum amount of hassle and fuss. With only a small amount of on-site sorting required by you, we’ll do all the major heavy lifting.

Cardboard Waste


If your business produces a lot of paper and cardboard waste then let us take care of collecting and recycling it for you. We can even help you to install on-site baling equipment to deliver even more cost savings for your business.

Food Waste

Food Waste

We take the food waste that your business produces and use bacteria to break it down. It’s then transformed into green electricity, fertiliser and compost. You can reduce your general waste costs by removing them from the general waste stream.

Glass Waste


Glass waste is heavy, so it can increase your general waste removal costs significantly. But by segregating it into its own bins, not only can you reduce your overall waste management costs, but it enables us to turn the glass into cullet and fully recycle it.


Commodities (with rebates)

If you produce large quantities of cardboard, plastic or metal we can pay you a rebate for that material. We can also advise on providing equipment to maximise your returns.

We also provide services for WEEE waste, clinical waste, hazardous, and pre-consumer food waste.
