I shred stuff most people prolly dont, mostly light cardboard food boxes (mac&cheese, etc...) so I keep my trash generation low (only set my trash out about once or twice a month) it's good shredding these, just tear into strips before shredding.

Aurora Shredder


We received this for a wedding gift, and have used it a lot. It can take quite a few papers at once, and can even shred credit cards. Definitely worth the money.

Aurora AS1018CD paper shredder


My wife tried to shred 8 pages of paper and it jammed, this stripped a quarter of the teeth on the nylon drive cog, so now it's usless

OK if only shredding a couple of pages

If you jam it it's had it!
