Collection of confidential shredding

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 1:46 am

Requesting bags and the collection of shredding:

Can staff please put items that they require to be shredded in to the designated shredding bags, the bags can now be requested on Planet.

Security will collect the shredding bags and take them to The Gateway Building loading bay for shredding – but this also needs to be requested via Planet please.

Please note the recent feedback from Estates is that they have collected a lot of shredding bags which have contained items such as empty coffee cups and folders – which are obviously not supposed to be in there.  Please ensure the bags are only full of shredding.

All items of shredding MUST be secured inside a shredder bag.
