It used to be that one couldn’t imagine the need for a shredder, sure, big companies that dealt with serious financial information had to destroy records, but when I grew up, for the most part people didn’t lock their doors, and nobody shredded anything. Times have changed and some companies shred not just to protect their customers privacy, but to save themselves! Folks have shredders at home. What is the world coming to?
Luckily, if we are going to destroy sensitive items, there’s a much better way to do it, Swingline’s Stack-and-Shred. No longer must you feed your machine page by page, removing staples and paper clips as you go, this monster eats them all. Simply stack them in the loading tray and this cross cut shredder will turn your important documents into 335 pieces of useless information. Time to get rid of those pesky credit cards? The Stack-and Shred destroys them too! (quicker and easier than my husband with a pair of scissors)
The Stack-and-Shred offers quiet, hands-free shredding. Just fill the bin, shut the lid and you’re done. Available in 5 different sizes from, home office to large corporation, these shredders range from a 60 sheet capacity to the commercial 500x model which can automatically destroy up to 500 sheets of paper, along with credit cards, CD’s or photos and empty the remains into a huge 21 gallon bin. The 500x also debuts a PIN protected loading lid that allows you to load the bin and walk away from your damaging documents. Phew! Thats a relief.
Prices range from about $169 to $2500 and most units are available from staples.com
