Soon we will have a secured container on-site for seniors to drop their document that need shredding. Despite the desire of many to create an electronic revolution, a paperless society, we’ve just not achieved that state of nirvana yet. For most people, paper is a necessity and a luxury at the same time. The fact of the matter is people like to touch, fold, file, stack and retain paper. Therein lies the problem. People like paper. They hang onto pieces, documents, shipping receipts, invoices, and sales call reports and make stacks on desks and floors. Watch the halls for our new Shredit box arriving in August.
