Is it time to retire your paper shredder in favour of a home paper shredding service? A paper shredding service for home is ideal if you’re working at home in a job that involves sensitive documents, and domestic paper shredding is equally important given the rise of identity theft and fraud. So why shouldn’t you just do the job yourself? Here are four reasons it’s better to leave the job to the professionals.
1. Health And Safety
If used incorrectly, home shredders can cause painful injuries, from minor scrapes through to severed fingers, which might sound dramatic, but is actually the most common injury associated with home shredders. If you have small children at home, getting rid of your shredder will help keep them safer too. By using Hungry Shredder, you’ll avoid this risk of injury altogether.
We can shred your paper in multiple locations such as Your paper to be shredded will go to one of our shredding centres in West Sussex, Middlesex or Brentford, where it will go into an industrial shredder, operated by a trained expert.
Do you have the facilities at home to keep your shredded documents under lock and key until you are able to dispose of them? If not, your home shredding could pose a security risk. Keeping the remains of important, sensitive or confidential documents in an unlocked bin can lead to data security risks. If you discard the waste in a domestic outside bin, anyone could potentially access it before your next collection, either accidentally or on purpose.
By using Hungry Shredder’s paper shredding service for home, all of your shredded waste will be disposed of safely in Brentford, Middlesex and West Sussex.
If you do your own shredding at home, what do you do with the shredded results? If the original documents were sensitive in nature, you still need to be mindful of disposal, even after shredding. Many domestic recycling services don't accept shredded paper because it can damage the machines, so sending your waste to a landfill may be the only option.
When you use Hungry Shredder, industrial shredders turn the waste into large bales. Those bales are securely transferred to UK paper mills and become new paper products, such as kitchen and toilet roll. Using a home paper shredding service is a much greener choice that’s kinder to the planet.
It can take a great deal of time and effort to remove staples and paperclips from documents to be shredded, which makes the process an even bigger job. At Hungry Shredder, we’ll take care of that for you. Removing and disposing of paperclips, staples and so on is all part of our paper shredding service for homes.
