Paper shredding for you

If you’re moving home, downsizing or having a good clear out, you may find you’re faced with a mound of personal paperwork you want to get rid of safely. Rather than you wasting hours feeding pages through a small desktop shredder, Let’s Talk Shred can deal with everything for you quickly, securely and easily.

A local Dundee company, we cover Tayside, Angus, Perth and Central and North-East Fife and are on hand to pick up your confidential paper waste from your home or you can drop it off at our depot if you prefer.

What can be shredded?

Any paper waste is fine – and you can leave in paper clips and staples. But no plastics, poly pockets, binders or metals please.

Is it safely destroyed?

Yes. all the shredding is done at our secure premises in Dundee within 24 hours of receipt. Our shredding machines quickly reduce the paper down to small pieces so your personal information is safely destroyed. Once the destruction is done, we will send you a Certificate of Destruction PDF document by email, so you know it’s complete.

Is there a minimum or maximum amount for shredding?

No. We’ll accept any amount – from one bag to hundreds!

What should the paperwork be in?

We can supply you with free sacks and tags. Just let us know how many you need by phone on 01382 725162 or by email at and we’ll drop them off with you. Or you can use your own bags or cardboard boxes, as long as they’re secure enough to hold the paper waste and not too heavy to lift.

Can you collect?

Yes, we’re happy to uplift your confidential paper waste. Just give us a call on 01382 725162 and we’ll arrange to collect it. A minimum charge will apply. On collection of your confidential data, our staff issue a Waste Transfer Note, signing to accept responsibility of the material. You then sign to confirm transfer.

Can I drop it off with you?

Yes. We’re open for client drop-offs at our premises at Baird Ave, Dryburgh Industrial Estate, Dundee DD2 3TN every Wednesday from 9am to 4pm. You do not need to phone ahead, but please use the entry phone system at the gate on arrival. There is plenty of customer parking.

Can I arrange regular paperwork pick-ups?

Yes. We can do a one-off collection or can uplift confidential paperwork for shredding at regular intervals to suit you, even if you only have a few bags each time. Call us on 01382 725162, send us an email at or contact us online to arrange this.

What happens to the shredded paper?

We recycle all our shredded paper. All our paper waste is sent to a local Fife mill for reprocessing. It is then made into other products such as paper plates, toilet roll and paper towels, so nothing is wasted. Find out more about our recycling policies on our Recycling page.
