The obvious costs of using office shredders is staff time, maintenance costs and labour.
Whilst office shredders are sold as industrial they cannot cope with more than a few sheets per pass. Removing staples and other fixings takes up valuable staff time. Lack of time provides staff an excuse for confidential papers not to be shredded. In addition, office shredders easily jam or burn out as frustrated staff push too much in at a time. Repairing and maintaining them all takes time and can cause a backlog of un-shredded documents.
All the costs can be removed by switching to a regular shredding service from a professional shredding firm.
