Question :- Do I have to take the Staples out?
Answer :- No unlike some smaller machines it does not bother if your paperwork has Staples, Bulldog clips etc… the equipment used by Mini Shred anything like that gets shredded and destroyed along with the paper and then gets removed when the paper is Recycled.
Question :- What happens to the paper after it is shredded?
Answer :- All the paper when it is Shredded is bailed up and sent of for recycling. Eventually depending on the Grade / Quality of the paper initially shredded it will end up back as either recycled paper or paper product.
Question :- If I have documents in plastic folder do I have to remove them from the plastic folders?
Answer :- No just like the staples and bulldog clips all the plastic gets shredded at the same time as the paper and gets removed when it all gets recycled.
Question :- What Do I Get to confirm its has been Destroyed Securely?
