Our contribution to the Environment

Empowering individuals and organisations to take positive action in conserving our natural resources is one of our top priorities at CCS. The European Union has enforced a set recycling target that declares all EU member states must recycle 50% of their municipal waste. Last year, Ireland surpassed this percentage by an impressive 13%. However, the fight to save our planet doesn’t end there. Burning paper produces harmful carbon-dioxide emissions which are destroying not only the atmospheric o-zone layer, but also our health.

By choosing to shred your confidential paper waste, you are saving up to 26,500L of water, 380 gallons of oil and 17 trees. All recycled material produced by CCS is sent directly to a recycling mill to be recycled and reused in many different forms. We have also reduced our carbon footprint by eliminating all paper dockets. Customer dockets are now recorded on our brand new handheld devices which can be sent via email by request. Ensure that your confidential waste is securely recycled by choosing CCS today.

Information Theft

Security breaches such as identity theft, corporate espionage and information leaks are becoming an increasingly common threat to businesses and individuals across Ireland. This occurs when sensitive details such as PPS numbers, drivers licenses, trade secrets and corporate identities are compromised to the hands of fraudsters.

The difficulty with this issue is that often the responsibility lies with the victim and can be expensive to resolve. By simply destroying your sensitive information in a secure fashion, you are eliminating the chance of future security breaches. CCS can help you safeguard your business or personal details by securely disposing all confidential information.
