  • What a busy year we’ve had at Russell Richardson! During 2017 we have shredded and recycled more paper than ever before. We’re now processing over 700 tonnes of paper every month making this year’s tonnage forecast to be almost 8,500 tonnes.


  • While the operations staff have been busy dealing with all the extra tonnage, the sales and marketing department have been getting out and about a lot throughout the year. We’ve exhibited at 7 events throughout the country and met some great contacts and new customers on our travels.


  • In September we held our own GDPR information event to help our customers get prepared for the forthcoming data protection regulation changes. The morning was so well received we’re planning on holding another early in the New Year, in plenty of time for when GDPR comes in to force on 25th May 2018.


  • In October we were thrilled to be announced as winners of the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber business award for Environmental Commitment. A great achievement for the whole team. Following on with award success, we were proud to be shortlisted for a Sheffield Business Award in the Excellence in Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility category.


  • Our archiving division has continued to grow throughout the year and we’ve almost filled our first storage facility. Further Russell Richardson sites are planned for early 2018 where we’ll have plenty of capacity for new archiving customers.


  • Our charity shredding has continued throughout 2017 and yet again we’ve had a record fundraising year. We increased our target to £4,000 and have absolutely smashed it, raising over £5,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity and Macmillan Cancer Support.  A big THANKYOU to everyone who has supported our charity shredding this year. Keep an eye on our social media and website to see what we’ll be up to in 2018 – we’ve got big plans to raise even more money as part of our 40th anniversary celebrations.


Thank you to all our customers, suppliers and partners who have helped make 2017 one of the most successful years in Russell Richardson’s history. We look forward to working with you all again in 2018 and celebrating our 40th year in business.
