Manning’s Office Solutions | In-House Shredding vs. Professional Shredding

A secured, locked container will be placed in your office. It holds over 100 lbs. of documents.

In-House Shredding Costs More Than You Think!

It is estimated that businesses spend $171.12 to shred 100 lbs. of paper. This cost may seem high, but when you consider it takes over 7.5 hours for employees to shred 100 lbs. (9,090 pages), based on a high-capacity shredder handling 20 pages a minute, you can see how quickly labor costs add up.

Shredding is not just the amount of time in front of the shredding machine, it also involves:
  • Sorting documents
  • Picking up and straightening the paper
  • Cleaning up paper residue
  • Disposing of the shredded paper
  • Sharpening, oiling or replacing the shredding machine’s blades

In addition, equipment and energy usage need to be factored when calculating the real costs of shredding in-house.
