Default Shredding in Dubai

Hello all,

Made a flying visit for the weekend. Have a ton of documents (well, two shopping bags full) that should really be shredded - anyone know if there is a service that'll do this, or maybe just a secure disposal bin somewhere? DIFC or the like?

Thanks! Back to 40 degree heat inside the warehouse now...

Shred-it but no idea if they do domestic. Have used them for commercial use. Or get a cat and let it loose!

In the UK, some banks will do it for their account holders, you could try them.

Thanks for all the ideas - in the end, an ex-colleague generously agreed to chuck it all into his company's shred-it bin.

The bank would not have been a bad idea but the idea of going into HSBC to ask anything out of the ordinary...

Burning was the final option! Shred-It wanted to send a truck. Even though I was calling them from 100m away from their Al Quoz depot. Oh well.

If I was around I'd have offered you the use of my shredder. I have one in my home office.
