Tailor-made shredding with Ison Harrison Solicitors

Written by on October 27, 2017

OK, OK…we admit it. Shredding isn’t the sexiest of topics. If you’re on a first date, it’s probably not one of the topics you want to get on to discussing.

Ison Harrison

Of course, we’re pretty fond of it – and we do like to talk about it. Quite a lot.

We can tell you what we do a thousand times but we think that, actually, the best way to tell you about our services is to have a client share their McCarthy’s Safe Shred experience with you.

So, thank you, Ison Harrison Solicitors for stepping up to the mark!

Ison Harrison Solicitors has 11 offices in Yorkshire, and although they’re rightly proud of their strapline “The Leeds Law Firm”, they work with clients across the country. The firm provides services ranging from commercial and residential property matters and immigration to wills and probate, personal injury, medical negligence and family law – just to name a few!

Ison Harrison recently sponsored the Child of Courage category in the Radio Aire Young Hero Awards which went to 4-year Toby Nye who is courageously battling Neuroblastoma. Over £5,000 was raised for the Cash for Kids Charity. Visit the website for more information or you can donate here.

Ison Harrison and McCarthy’s Safe Shred have been working together now for just over three years. We have tailored a special shredding service for the company to fit around their needs, and to keep disruption to a minimum. An early morning service ensures everything happens before most of the staff are even at their desks – and also allows us to miss the city centre traffic so we can be on our way quicker!

Because not every office has the same amount of confidential waste to dispose of, we also vary the number of collections – for example, head office is visited fortnightly, but some of the other branches are once every four weeks. But these can be altered as needed by agreement.

Shredding Van Side

Paul Allinson, Facilities Manager at Ison Harrison, explains further: “We’re known as The Leeds Law Firm, so we like to work with other companies with a proud local heritage, which is what we got with McCarthy’s – along with a service and pricing structure which worked for us and a supplier who could deliver and go the extra mile.

“The shredding service we receive was tailored made for us, and it keeps disruption to a minimum, which is ideal. As a law firm we obviously have quite a large volume of confidential waste, and we wanted to work with a company who could destroy it properly, and without any fuss. With McCarthy’s it’s straightforward and not something we have to worry about. There’s also the extra bonus of the company’s green credentials. We know all the shredded waste goes off to be recycled, which is important to us. At Ison Harrison we promote recycling in all our branches and very little goes to landfill so it is very important that we do our bit to make the planet a better place to live.”

Of course, we couldn’t let Paul go without one last, probing and vitally important question on shredding. If McCarthy’s came up with a magic shredder which could get rid of any TV show or film permanently, what would Paul be handing us to go in there?

“Any soaps,” Paul concludes. “Oh, and that irritating advert ‘Bye Bye to the PPI’. And maybe it’s time to make sure Arnie doesn’t come back…”


Extremely efficient and prompt service. Lee and Conner were very helpful and the job was completed without a hitch. I would recommend them and definitely use the service again. Thanks.

This is an impressive facility which is extremely well-managed. Colette and Tina are marvellous with the customers explaining procedures clearly and with patience. We would recommend this company without hesitation.
