A family
run business...


Established in 1978 as a paper recycler Russell
Richardson has evolved into one of the UK’s leading document management and confidential shredding companies. Still bearing the name of the founder unlike all the generic ‘Shred Something’s’ Russell Richardsons are very proud of our focus on customer service, staff empowerment and job satisfaction and the fair treatment and loyalty shown to suppliers.

Today, the company, still 100% controlled by the family and provides a variety of services such as on or off site document shredding, document archiving, textile and uniform destruction, hard drive shredding (on and off site), electronic media destruction and IT recycling.

Although we like to destroy things we like to recycle as well. 100% of the paper we shred is sent back to the paper mills for manufacture into new tissue products thereby closing the loop, and as we are accredited to ISO 14001 we are constantly monitoring and improving our fleet performance statistics and energy usage. See the sustainabiliy page for further details.

We also like to do our bit for charity and by providing a free shredding service to private customers who deliver in to us their donations have raised thousands of pounds for our charity of choice.
