Office Efficiency - Handy Hints

How to get the best out of your Office Shredder

Posted: Monday 17th January 2022

If you have small volumes of paper to shred and do not need 'Certification' or 'Proof of Destruction' then a paper shredder is probably the best shredding solution for your workplace or home office

Three things that are important to keep in mind when buying a paper shredder are:

  1. It is recommended to only use cross-cut or confetti shredders. Strip cut shredded paper is easily to re-assemble and not as secure as cross-cut shredders.  All cross-cut (confetti) shredders should have their cutters oiled regularly to maintain maximum cutting efficiency and to avoid breakdowen.
  2. Try and buy the biggest shredder your working environment requires and your budget will allow. Inexpensive shredders are just that and invariably need to be replaced within a relatively short period of time.
  3. All paper shredders need to be oiled because paper dust builds up inside the cutting assembly and this will impact the performance of the shredder and will cause over-heating and eventually breakdown. As a guide, oil your cross-cut shredder every 1/2 hour of shredding time. This can be weekly/monthly depending on your shredding time
