When New Year rolls around, many people make resolutions to get more organized. This means you'll be going through all the forgotten cubbies and corners of your home and sorting through old documents, records and files. By the end of your clean-out, you may have come across enough old documents to fill up a couple of boxes. Whether you have collected old pay stubs or credit card statements, records from old employment institutions, or any other kind of file that contains personal or private information, you need to properly destroy it before you toss it.
Home shredders are great if you have one or two pages a day that you need to dispose of. But after a deep clean you may find you have an overwhelming number of documents that would take hours to shred via a personal home shredder. In most cases, a home shredder can only handle one document at a time. You would have to sort through and remove any staples or paperclips, and the machine can get very hot very fast, requiring breaks between every few sheets. The obvious solution? Call someone with a larger, more capable shredder.
