Printwaste, the Gloucestershire firm which specialises in the mobile shredding and recycling of documents and paperwork, has won a major contract with Birmingham City Council.
It will be the authority's sole supplier of secure shredding services for the next four years.
As the UK's largest council, the Birmingham tender process was extensive and thorough and Printwaste said it was proud to be entrusted with this contract.
Don Robins, director of family-run Printwaste, said "We are delighted with the award of the Birmingham City Council contract which reflects Printwaste's ability to provide a highly professional and secure service, while giving cost effective solutions and high customer service levels.

 "This important contract highlights our strengths in secure shredding and data destruction and further demonstrates our growing market share in the Birmingham and West Midlands areas."

The contract includes use of Cheltenham-based Printwaste's fleet of mobile shredding vehicles for on-site shredding at the council's 65 offices.
The contents will then be returned to the high security data destruction and recycling facility Cheltenham for recycling into new paper products.

 Cllr James McKay, cabinet member for a green, safe and smart city at Birmingham City Council, said: "I am delighted that we have been able to secure a contractor with environmental ambitions that match those of the city council.

 "Any waste that we landfill is an added cost to the taxpayer, so the solution offered by this contract means we avoid this and provide excellent value for the taxpayer."

Printwaste has won several awards for its commitment to reducing, preventing and recycling waste.

Other recent business developments include the expansion of the Stoke Orchard waste transfer facility to handle large volumes of mixed recycled material, growth in the Gloucestershire customer base; and the successful up-skilling of 40 staff members.

 Printwaste employs 52 staff over three sites.
The company has more than 2,000 customers across all business sectors, from Government and local authorities, health, financial, academic and legal organisations to commercial and industrial firms of all sizes.
