We guarantee secure and total destruction of documents.
Document destruction is not only important for legal and confidentiality requirements. Assuring the complete destruction of your archived documents is critical to your business’ security.
RST document destruction allows your business to comply with the Privacy Act 1988, which states that “a record-keeper shall ensure: that the record is protected … against loss, against unauthorized access, use, modification or disclosure, and against other misuse”.
The requirement to maintain documents in a secure manner applies not only to your office, but while documents are in transit to destruction. Imagine if half your filing cabinet fell off the back of a truck, or sensitive papers managed to escape from an unsecured vehicle and onto the highway! This is why we use fully enclosed trucks for all our document destruction.
Confidential documents are picked up at your convenience. RST do not require a contract for confidential document pickup; we keep your business by service, not by contract.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the minimum duration for a waste disposal contract with RST?
There are no contractual obligations: You can use our services as little or as often as you need to. You are not bound to us for a specific term, as with many other medical waste and sanitation companies.
My workplace requires a secure waste disposal. Are you able to provide this?
All RST staff hold a current certificate of federal police clearance, enabling us to pick up waste without compromising your OHS and legal obligations.
Our 240lt wheelie bins have lids that can be padlocked and will remain locked whilst in transit to the disposal area. On arrival at the incinerator the bins are unlocked and emptied into the incinerator in a controlled environment. We believe this gives you, our customer, a greater confidence that the confidentiality of your documents is being maintained to a high integrity.
To help you fulfil your legal requirements for confidentiality we supply a certificate of destruction outlining the volume and location of destruction.
Do you provide separate pharmaceutical and anatomical waste containers?
As our medical waste containers all get incinerated we only provide a single bin for all clinical waste types. Your pharmaceutical and anatomical waste and sealed sharps containers can go in a single bin to simplify your processes.
