With a vision to revolutionise sustainable waste management practices, Te-Aumihi and Mike Odgen have infused the company with fresh ideas and innovative strategies. Under their management, Confidential Document Destruction has evolved beyond its core service of confidential document destruction to embrace additional sustainable waste collection solutions tailored to meet the growing sustainability needs of businesses in the Bay of Plenty region.
