Fuju Xerox Introducing Paper Shredder with Recycling

shredder.jpgIt seems perfectly obvious that any old shredder could be placed atop the recycling bin, but evidently, if you want super top-secret shredding, the paper fibers are typicially damaged beyond the point of being easily recycled. So… according to my favorite Japanese news source (Japan for Sustainablity) Fuji Xerox had solved the problem with something called the Trust-Eco 1500 which not only shreds paper beyond recognition at an astonishing rate, it’s also low on power consumption, and the fibers remain inintact enough to be recycled. Interesting!
