Your employees are back in the workplace. Maybe they’re back full-time, or maybe they have hybrid schedules. Either way, you need to figure out the best paper shredding frequency for your company.
How Often Should My Company Have Shredding Pickups?
Depending on how many employees you have and how often they’re in the facility, you could be looking at a wide array of possibilities. Our customers use our shredding services in frequencies that range from:
- Every other week
- Every 4, 8, or 12 weeks
The amount of printer paper you use on average can help you determine your shredding frequency needs. For example, a brand new standard box of printer paper reams weighs 30 lbs.
If your office has a single, small shredding console that holds up to 100 lbs of paper, you’ll need a weekly shredding service if you use more than one ream of printer paper per week.
Choosing the Right Shredding Equipment for Your Workplace
Equipment is important. To reduce pickup frequency, you can always opt for larger shredding equipment. Here are a few options our customers use:
- Office Console: 100 lbs of paper capacity
- 64 Gallon Security Toter: 220 lbs
- 96 Gallon Security Toter: 330 lbs
These equipment choices work well for most situations, but there are more available depending on your needs (see the full list of options here). Feel free to call our Customer Support Team at 651-647-3484 to learn more about your options!
