Look Mom No Hands: Introducing Hands-Free Shredding from Fellowes

This post brought to you by Fellowes, Inc. . All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s tax time and many of us are also in purge SPRING CLEAN mode.  We are in the midst of re-doing my office. We just moved my husband’s office to the study. With a mix of papers here and another stack of files there – and software CDs, I had no idea we had so many old software CDs! (Remember back from when you had to actually have a CD to install software?) With this spring clean out, we are in shred mode.

Hands Free Shredding!

While a typical shredder has you manually feeding your shreddables into the shredder, Fellowes up the ante creating a shredder that shreds staples, paper clips, CDs, crumpled paper, glossy paper, DVDs HANDS FREE! That’s right, hands-free shredding, no more sitting next to a shredding, manually feeding various item into the shredder.


I remember shred days at the office. I so wish we had this technology. The last company I worked for, outsourced their shredding. With the AutoMax, all shredding can be done in-house.
