Element (06): Destruction Arrangements

West Lothian Council have contracts in place for the bulk destruction of paper records and IT equipment containing electronic records.

In addition, West Lothian Council uses on site paper/CD/DVD shredders which ensure that paper and optical media are destroyed to European security standards (2 x 15 mm particles).

Standards for records destruction arrangements are built into contracts and agreements with third parties who handle or process records on the council's behalf.
