Paper shredders and paper shredder bags protect sensitive or confidential data while managing high volumes of paper waste in offices and industrial environments. Paper shredders cut paper and related objects into thin strips or confetti-like units for safe disposal and protection against identify theft and fraud. Industrial shredders are capable of shredding large stacks of paper, along with CDs, credit cards, and hard drives. Shredder bags facilitate disposal and are available in plastic or paper construction. Paper shredder bags can be recycled along with the shreds they catch.
