Paper recycler Smurfit Kappa Recycling has appointed Lucy Russell as its new Security Shredding Manager, handling the growing confidential waste service it provides to financial institutions, government departments, pharmaceutical companies and commercial organisations across the UK.
Lucy brings a combined knowledge of the paper and packaging sector as well
as the security industry, and has many years’ experience in customer-facing
roles, working with both Blue Chip companies and the public sector. Before
joining Smurfit Kappa Security Shredding, Lucy worked in the sales and
finance departments of Mondi Packaging Diss, a corrugated box plant in
Norfolk, which was acquired by the Smurfit Kappa Group in May 2010. Prior to
that, she was sales administration manager for Permadoor, and operations and

Accredited to the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) and the
United Kingdom Security Shredding Association (UKSSA), Smurfit Kappa
Security Shredding offers a compliant and confidential service to destroy
unwanted files and documents and recycle them securely. All shredded paper
is recycled in the UK and used to manufacture tissue. The company can also
securely dispose of other sensitive items such as uniforms, security passes,
CDs and magnetic media. From the provision of lockable office bins and
security bags to collections by security vehicles and onsite CCTV, Smurfit
Kappa Security Shredding provides an unbroken chain of custody and
certificates of destruction in line with the Data Protection Act.
"Any company which has not taken responsible steps to destroy such material
securely is putting itself at risk of fraud and could face a heavy fine.
The consequences could cause significant embarrassment and damage to a
company’s reputation," explains Lucy who is offering free compliance audits
