See attached image. First you click on More info HERE link from my post. It will take you to Facebook page. There you will see information on top (also I show it in added image in red square). Then you click on Shredding Services link or just click HERE [staples.com] and you will get to to Staples page. From Staples page click on Find Store link under Shredding Services. Thats all.

Do they shred it right in front of you or do they store it to be shredded later? If it's the latter, then I'd think twice about it.

Agreed. Well said. The last thing I need is Staples combing through my personal files.

At my store they store them for shredding later. My Office Depot has a couple of days each year that they sponsor a local shredding service to come out and shred on site everything you bring. You can watch it being done

Yeah, I was wondering about that. I have a bunch of other people's info which is provided to me in confidence. Don't like the idea of just dropping it off where somebody else will have access to it for whatever period of time before it's shredded.

They have large locking bins with slots in them that the paper is dumped into.

These are most like Iron Mountain bins, and you can trust them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron...corporated

Except that's not what happens. Not at all.

The shredders don't shred, not at all. They secretly scan all your papers you feed it and uploads to the CIA, where they gather everything about you.

Why shred when you can burn and know that you can't put the data back together?
