The current Data Protection legislation provides rules and penalties
for incorrect disposal of Personal Data and/or Confidential Waste.
Compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 can provide real problems
for Commerce and Business in the UK.
This ‘Confidential Twin Bin’ acts as an 'interface'
between the 'user' and the 'official' confidential waste bin. It
was developed for two purposes, firstly to help the financial services
industry comply with it’s (audited) confidential waste regulations,
and secondly to help reduce the cost of confidential waste disposal.
On inspection of confidential waste receptacles, some companies
have found that up to 30% of bin contents was not confidential material.
Conversely a recent report from the Information Commissioner's Office
has found 12 High Street Banks guilty of discarding customers personal
details in unsecured bins outside their premises.
The ‘Confidential Twin Bin’ facilitates the effective
separation of ‘Office Paper’ & ‘Confidential
Waste’ at source. This discreet unit allows more bins to be
conveniently situated in an office environment, rather than asking
the office staff to visit more remote and (less used) larger receptacles.
At regular intervals the bins can be decanted (swept) into a larger
or more centrally located deposition points.
This unit sits snugly under the desk and allows office workers
to deposit both types of documentation in one location, and by allowing
your office workers to separate waste at source, it ensures that
the correct type paper is being deposited in the correct container.
The convenience of this ‘local source’ system should
lead to greater care, willingness and accuracy in the separation
of office documentation. This in turn can lead to a reduction in
volumes (and therefore cost) of Confidential Waste disposal.
