Some businesses buy a shredding machine and think that’s enough. However, hiring a commercial document shredding service is much better when you need big bulks of files and pages destroyed. The Youtube video, “Proshred San Diego – Document Destruction and Paper Shredding Services – The Shredding Process,” describes the shredding process and benefits of using their services.

The company takes your boxes of documents and places the pages in a container. When that container is full, it goes into the machine, which will destroy everything in seconds. One truck can hold around 10,000 pounds of shredded paper. It would take a long time for a tiny shredding machine to break down that amount.

But the great benefit of using a service is what happens after the paper has been cut. This company will send the destroyed material to recycling, and most of that currently goes to China to create low-grade toilet paper and other paper-based products.

You can watch the rest of the video for more details about what happens inside a shredding truck. Remember to use a service instead of trying to do it in the office because it’s more efficient and better for the environment.
