Confidential waste disposal

Confidential documents are collected for subsequent destruction in a high security (Level 4) industrial paper shredder. The shredder, a HSM SP5088 Model security Level 4, can destroy A4 lever arch files and ledger books whole, without the need to open the files. The shredded paper will be cut into small pieces (1.9 x 15mm) and make them into shredded paper bails which will be palletised and sent to a paper mill in Spain for recycling.

Confidential hard Drive destruction specializes in the safe and secure collection of Hard Drives (HDDDs) from our clients for onsite destruction with our Garner Hydraulic Guillotine. These HDDDs are physically destroyed and all the waste material from the process is collected is sent for recycling to an approved site.

Office Recycling Services can collect your office wastes (paper, cardboard, batteries, toners, fluorescents, waste electrical equipment) for subsequent safe disposal and/or recycling. We can supply you with containers to collect these at your designated recycling point, where we would set up an internal “Office Recycling Point” where your staff can adequately dispose of these materials for subsequent collection and recycling.

Following strict procedures, we offer a Certified Document Destruction Service here in Gibraltar. We use industrial shredding machines that can shred large amounts, quickly.  The confidential documents are placed on a conveyor belt with minimum handling and automatically fed into the shredder. Your confidential documents will be shred into unidentifiable confetti type pieces.  The shredding machines use two contra-rotating drums to cut rectangular, parallelogram, or diamond-shaped shreds.   We do not shred in long parallel strips. You can accompany your confidential paper and witness the shredding process if you wish.  All paper we shred is also recycled. We cater for all requirements and can collect and shred any amount of documents. If you have an on-going need for this service, or just a once off as you are clearing out your filing rooms, please feel free to contact us and we can send you our price list.  We are always happy to help.

Metal Recycling

We can arrange for ad-hoc, pre-arranged collections, of a wide range of metals for recycling. Ferrous metals, stainless steel, aluminium and copper are the main metals we can collect for recycling at an approved recycling site.

Fluorescent tubes

This waste has a highly contaminating, heavy metal component used in the light tubes themselves, which if broken and disposed off in an unauthorised way will be a direct input of mercury into the ecosystem in which we live. At EWMS & we collect these items, undamaged, and pre package them for safe transport to an approved site where the heavy metal content will be recovered and safely recycled or disposed off in accordance with EU requirements and legislation.
