Understanding the Importance of Streamlining Paper Waste in a Business Setting

The accumulation of paper is a problem for all businesses, no matter what type of industry it is working within. If a business owner does not have a plan of action in place to deal with the build up of business documents and paper waste, it can start to have a detrimental effect on the company as a whole. It slows up administrative processes, prevents employees from performing roles that they are best suited to and it can leave you counting the cost of storage space that could be much better utilised in other ways that could actually make the company money.

Business leaders that succeed are always those with a clear plan and a methodical nature. The earlier you can put in place a framework of administrative processes and a scalable framework through which your company can deal with paper waste and the storage and management of long-term physical business documents, the higher the chance of success.

Document Storage and Management – Working with a document storage management company such as Box-it Humberside can put your mind at ease. No matter the reasons behind your desire and requirements for storing your business folders and files at a secure location away from your work premises, we can ensure that you never have to worry again about the potential theft, loss or accidental damage of potentially critical and sensitive business documentation. It also gives you the chance to manage those documents that you do need to archive, utilising our services to retrieve files as and when you need them.

Confidential Business Shredding – Another way to ensure that there is not a build up of paper waste in your office environment is to take advantage of the Box-it confidential shredding service. All documents that we shred are then recycled in to new paper-based products. We are accredited with ISO:14001, Environmental Management Standards, operating to the highest standards. Since the Data Protection Act 1998 it is important as a business to be aware of all documents that are held on-site (and in secure storage) that contains information of a personal, financial, and sometimes sensitive information about employees, suppliers and clients.

We understand that every single day within your working environment there is new paper created, some of which has to be retained for the purposes of your records, others that will fast become paper waste.
