PVC Card Secure Recycling


Most ID cards contain secure and personal data and thus must be securely disposed of at the end of their life. Incorrectly disposing of your ID cards could result in a GDPR penalty.

If you already use a secure shredding service, they may allow you to recycle your ID cards if it's within their tolerance for 'contamination'.

If you don't use such a service and you wish to securely dispose of your cards, you can ship them using our postage label. We'll ensure that they're disposed of safely and securely.

This applies to all types of PVC cards and badges – if you’re unsure, please feel free to contact us and we’ll advise you.

ID Card Printer Ribbon Secure Recycling


Ribbons are often overlooked in terms of security. Ribbons contain all data that has been printed on the card so it must be securely disposed of. Failing to do this could result in a GDPR fine.

Shredding your ribbons with normal office waste is generally not possible due to contamination.

Our secure service enables you to send them via courier. Once received, the ribbons are split into film and plastic components. The plastic components are then sent for recycling and the film will be stored in a locked container ready to be shredded securely.

Please use this postage label and send them securely via courier.

Lanyard Recycling


Lanyards can be tricky to recycle due to the mixed materials they contain.

Many lanyards are reused time and time again (some can even be washed!) and we would always recommend reuse as a first option.

If you have branded lanyards that are no longer relevant, we can help you recycle them.

Once received, the lanyards are stripped down to the separate materials so the cloth, metal and plastic elements can be individually recycled.

Please use this postage label and send them securely via courier.

Card Holder Recycling


Card holders should be reused as much as possible until they are fully worn or no longer fit for use. Once you no longer have use for your cardholders, throwing them away may be the easy option but it does not help the plastic waste issue.

Don't throw them in the trash! Recycling is a much more environmentally friendly solution for your cardholders.

Once received, your card holders will be melted down and reused to create brand new card holders.

All you need to do is send your card holders by printing this postage label via courier and they will be recycled upon receipt.

Vinyl Pouch Recycling


Like card holders, vinyl pouches should be reused as much as possible until they are no longer usable. Throwing the vinyl pouches away may be the easy option but it does not help the plastic waste issue.

Instead of throwing them in the trash, recycling them is the much more environmentally friendly solution.

By recycling your vinyl pouches, they can be shredded and remade as brand new!

All you need to do is send your vinyl pouches to this postage label and they will be recycled as soon as they have been received.

Secure Recycling for your Peace of Mind

Secure ID Card Recycling

Our recycling service is secure and ensures the safe disposal and protection of your data. We guarantee that you will be satisfied with our service and you will be protecting the environment at the same time.

Our Environmental Policy

We hate waste but unfortunately it is inevitable, both with packaging but also errors, which do occasionally happen. To prevent as much waste as possible going into land fill we take the following steps:

  • All of our waste is separated and all paper (which is first cross shredded), cardboard, plastic, glass and metal is sent for recycling.
  • We donate some of the useful packaging to our local nursery - the kids love turning empty ribbon boxes into sculptures!
  • We have minimised office printing as much as possible and as such all invoices and statements are sent electronically.
  • We strip our used printer ribbons down as much as possible and send the ribbon for secure destruction and recycling and the plastic elements for standard recycling.
  • We reuse as many packing materials as we can - including boxes, air bags, bubble wrap and paper.
  • We train our team to pack efficiently using minimal packaging whilst ensuring the goods are securely packaged.
  • Any scrap PVC cards we generate are sent safely and securely to our recycling partner who securely shreds and recycles them once they have received them.
  • All defunct electrical equipment is disposed of under WEEE regulations.
  • Our used tea bags and coffee grounds are composted.
  • We have installed solar panels on the office roof.
  • We've replaced all of our office lighting with energy saving LED panels.

As we say, we hate waste, love the environment and care for what we do!
