Meet the team

Tony Hughes

Tony Hughes

Managing Director

Tony has worked in the recycling industry for over 35 years; his expertise lies in managing and operating the very large car shredders that can shred up to 2,000 tonnes of scrap metal including automobiles per day.

Tony was the Processing General Manager, South East for Sita UK between 2007 and 2012, where he was responsible for 155 sites and 250 employees across both the waste and metal business that were under the Sita control. He was instrumental in helping the company move from a services-based company to a processing company.

Tony is extremely good at setting up and managing a team to deliver the targets set for the business. He is very approachable and a great listener, priding himself on helping and developing the team that works under him.

Yvonne Curtis

Yvonne Curtis

Commercial Manager

Yvonne has worked in the Public Sector for the last 18 years and has been at the forefront of the administration for the A&E Department at Darent Valley Hospital. During this role, she became very skilled at dealing with all types of customers, from the very nice and placid customer to the very aggressive and threatening, which has given her the skills to work in our commercial sector.

Yvonne is an extremely friendly and warm employee and finds her work life very satisfying. Yvonne enjoys working with our clients and delivering on their needs. Yvonne worked very closely with confidential information on patients, how it is filed, archived and eventually destroyed and uses her knowledge from that within this role.

“Tony Hughes of Confidential Document Destruction helped us with our GDPR requirements and did a great job by coming to see us, finding out about our business, putting together all the policy documents that our business needed and carrying out staff training. He comes highly recommended.”

Janice Hook

Director , JH Property Management Ltd, Sittingbourne

“Just to recommend the excellent service and response from Tony and his team at Confidential Document Destruction Limited.

We were moving our commercial team a few miles to Kent Science Park after 8 successful years at Conqueror Court, Sittingbourne. Inevitably the ‘spring clean’ of filing cabinets and cupboards uncovered lots of historical reports/documents that needed secure disposal.

Faced with probably a week of standing at the shredder we decided to give CDDL a call. The waste bags arrived same day and collected a week later, again within a few hours of the request.

I can’t recommend Tony and his team highly enough – give them a call, you won’t be disappointed.”

Paul Russell

Sales & Marketing Manager , Monarch Chemicals

“We would just like to thank you and your team for the professional service that has been delivered. We have found by using the enclosed secure confidential waste bin it has saved time, removed the constant noise and issue caused by the office paper shredder. Plus, as an added bonus, it’s a great place put the office plants. Thanks again.”
