How to use a shredder

A shredder is one of the easiest office devices to use. They are simple to use and usually require little to no training.

When you receive your new shredder, a Print Logic engineer will install it and train your staff its  operation. Use of the device is simple just requiring the user to feed paper into it.

  1. Take your documents and slide them into the slot at the top of the device. It doesn’t matter which way up you feed it, but it’s important to remember not to overfeed it, or the device might jam. Most shredders can handle paper, stapes, cards and even CD’s, but take care to check that things like paperclips have been removed from your paper before you put them in, as this may damage the blades.

  1. The shredder will take your papers and start feeding them through the blades. After a while the shredder will fill up, when this happens turn off the shredder and remove the bin which contains all the waste paper. Empty this into a refuse sack and dispose of this in the correct place. Once you’re happy the bin is completely empty, just insert it back onto the main body of the shredder, and turn the device back on.

The way to keep your shredder properly maintained varies from model to model, but the more complex tasks will be covered by a Print Logic engineer during regular visits. This is covered on any of our Managed Print Service plans which include a shredder as part of the package.
