What can’t go in PROSHRED® shredding bins?
The list of what you can’t put in a shredding bin is much more specific. First and foremost, items that are not paper documents should not be placed in the shredding bins. While it may seem obvious, it never hurts to be well-informed about what should and shouldn’t be placed in your PROSHRED® shredding bins.
Items that should not go in a shredding bin include:
- Electronic media or electronic waste
- Other recyclables
- Newspaper and magazines
- Wet, burnt, or otherwise contaminated paper
What To Do With Items That Can’t Go in Shredding Bins
PROSHRED® offers alternative services for items that can’t be put in a shredding bin. For plastic and other recyclable materials, such as cardboard, newspaper, and magazines, we recommend working with a recycling company to place bins in your office specifically for that use. For items like electronic waste, X-rays, old uniforms, security badges, credit cards, prescription bottles, and other items not easily recycled, we offer product destruction and hard drive destruction services.
Why Keep Papers Secure in Shredding Bins

By using the shred bins provided by PROSHRED® Southern New Jersey to keep your documents safe between pickups, you are safeguarding not only your sensitive company data but also the information you collect from those you interact with.
