    Hi mechal, Welcome to Business Advice Forum. Did you wish to post any questions in relation to your new business.

    Most offices have their own shredders these days, home owners can even buy small paper shredders very cheaply. Have you asked yourself why people would pay you to shred their paper?

    Perhaps as well as shredding you could offer to dispose of the waste securely? This is a concern for a lot of businesses is that even items they shred can be read. If you could do a deal directly with a recycle center or paper mill you could take the shredded paper away from offices and get it to where it needs to go..

    It would also be great if you could do something for the environment, when disposing of the shredded paper. Recycling it would be much better than dumping or burning it and would allow your client companies to tell their customers they are doing something positive for the environment.

    I use a paper shredding company currently. They collect the paper, shred and send to their plant where it is converted into puld for reuse. They manufacture the paper holders found in many shipping containers. IE: The preformed tray that holds the item.

    One service in our area also provides the shredding of hard drives to meet the need for degoussing.

    Don't know if I would trust one, if I dispose of it, I know it has not been seen by everyones eyes, maybe paranoid, but an obstacle you will need to get over to many people and businesses

    That's a good business plan of yours, Mechal.

    I once have been using paper/document shredders when I was working in a bank before.

    One thing I realized is the importance of maintaining a shredding machine: it's by using an environment-friendly biodegradable shredder oil at least once every time you empty your shredder bin. This way, it will really help to keep the cutters in top condition and extend the life of the shredding machine.

    Many believe that fire or burning is not only cost effective but quite efficient, but I really don't agree it's a good idea.

    You are going to start a business i hope it is the best job. We can not burn the papers due to environmental problems. You must start the business for paper shredding. Today lot of papers are required to shred.

    you can do that the paper shreding is very low investment business and grow as you work hard. so i think if you already have knowladge in this feild then go for it. Make some business plan and start your business.

    this is good idea. we have a few places in Indiana like that. some places come and pick the papers up, and others you can take to there location and watch them be shredded.

    I'm with Kip. And I'd not want to trust that it was done either unless I saw it with my own eyes.

    Here's an interesting option. Mobile shredding trucks. Now that's clever. :)

    Source.

    This is what they look like. It's the smallest in the range.
