What is a confidential
A confidential waste bag is a secure sack used to store sensitive documents. They can hold shredded paper waste or confidential items that need shredding. Confidential waste bags come in many sizes and can be made from various materials, including polythene, polypropylene, or paper.
Using a confidential waste bag makes separating sensitive rubbish from regular paper recycling easy. Many paper confidential bags can be put through a shredder with their contents and the shredded paper is then recycled. Confidential sacks made from types of plastic should be emptied and reused.
Secure bags offer an ideal solution for businesses that only produce small amounts of confidential waste or have limited space for storage. Label each one to keep it separate from other waste types and ensure the contents are destroyed and recycled appropriately.
We can supply confidential waste disposal bags in a wide range of sizes to suit the amount of sensitive waste you have. Each bag has a maximum weight limit and many include a max fill line that you should keep waste below. You can order extra bags if you exceed the limit.
The maximum weight limit depends on the size and material of the bag, with available options including confidential bags that can hold up to 12kg, 17kg, and 25kg. Some common sizes of confidential waste disposal bags include:
- 60 x 90cm
- 60 x 100cm
- 71 x 142cm

Why do I need confidential
waste sacks or bins?
Businesses must comply with the Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when storing and disposing of confidential waste. Confidential waste sacks provide a secure way to store all sorts of sensitive and important documents on-site before they’re collected and recycled. You can use them to hold shredded paper or documents that will be transported and shredded off-site.
Bags are more flexible than rigid bins, so you can easily place them in small and secure areas of your business before collection. Storing sensitive waste in such sacks minimises the chance of private and important information falling into the wrong hands. Keep the bags in a locked room or container to limit access.
They also offer a simple solution to separate your confidential waste from paper recycling and other waste streams. Most confidential waste disposal bags are labelled. This reduces the risk of contaminating other loads and should ensure as much of your confidential waste as possible is recycled.
What can you put in
confidential waste sacks?
Use confidential waste sacks to store a wide range of confidential papers that need destroying. Any papers that contain private, personal, and sensitive information that you no longer need can be put in paper confidential waste sacks. This separates them from other waste and ensures they’re disposed of in line with relevant data regulations.
You can put complete documents in a confidential waste bag before it’s shredded or the shredded paper waste created from destroying sensitive papers if your organisation has a shredder. It’s important that you use separate bags to ensure the waste is processed properly though.
Common examples of what you can put in confidential waste paper bags include:
- Medical records
- Old contracts
- Financial documents
- CVs from candidates
- Building plans
