No worries about security: feed 8 sheets of paper into this crosscut shredder at a time, or your credit cards, CDs and DVDs. Thorough shredding prevents later use. Paper clips and staples won't harm this shredder, and a wide viewing window lets you see when it's full. Then use the pull-up handle for easy emptying. 15 1/2" w x 14 1/2" h x 13" d.
