US residents enjoy town-sponsored paper-shredding day

By on June 19, 2007 in Shredders & Supplies

Around 100 residents from a US town were able to dispose of old documents for free recently, after a giant Paper shredder was installed at a local recycling centre.

The Paper shredder was made available by Secure EcoShred of Brookfield and was sponsored by the town council of Redding, reports The Redding Pilot.

It got underway early in the morning, with many local residents turning up in their cars with piles of boxes filled with Paper.

The centre coordinator, Tom Newsome, revealed that the operation went well, though he admitted that the people who arrived to use the Paper shredder faced a bit of a wait.

“The first couple of people had about 20 boxes of Papers each,” he explained, “which caused a bit of a backup, but we walked through the line offering for people to switch lanes and drop off their boxes, but most opted to wait.”

Alexander Alves, who operated the huge mobile Paper shredder, revealed that unit can hold up to four tonnes of shredded Paper and powers blades which work under 1,300 pounds of pressure.

Kathy and Bill Hake, a couple who used the Paper shredder, told the Redding Pilot of their delight at being able to dispose of old personal Papers.
