I leased a Shresmart 50 several months ago and am very pleased with it's performance. Rugged and handsome, it serves my needs handily. All our recyclable plastic is put through the machine. I have reduced the volume of waste and substantially increased patient privacy. The reduction of the number of Biomed boxes and the inherent savings generated more than make up the lease cost.

The shredder has been a welcome and positive addition to our pharmacy. It shreds our bottle returns from our patients and helps shred documents with sensitive patient health information. This shredding has saved us a great deal of space and labour. The shredder has also saved us money when compared to alternative services.

Space:

Before the shredder, we would have to form boxes and place plastic bags inside of them and fill boxes of Stericycle and store the boxes in our pharmacy. We work in a busy pharmacy and thus we would have quite a few large boxes to deal with before the next pick up by Stericycle. With the shredder, we are able to shred the bottles and throw the material in the regular garbage.

Labour:

Making the boxes, adding the plastic liner, and putting on the stickers “Rx” on the boxes was a bit of labour that we were able to eliminate by using the shredder. With the shredder, we just take our bucket of bottles to the shredder, dump it and clear out the garbage from the bottom once a day.

Money:

The shredder is a much cheaper alternative solution to high 3rd party disposal companies such as Stericycle. Our monthly disposal costs are mostly gone and we are saving thousands of dollars every year using the shredder. I recommend the shredder to be used in a business setting that deals with, and disposes of large amounts of materials and shredding of paper documents.

Canadian Addiction Treatment Pharmacy, North York, ON, is a hub and spoke pharmacy serving 12 Ontario Addiction Treatment clinics in Southern Ontario. Last month, we had the ShredSmart 50 installed in our facility to handle both empty and full Methadone bottle returns for shredding. The machine is a powerful, yet quiet shredder of plastic (and paper) which takes up minimal space in our storage room. The machine has afforded us hundreds of dollars/month in waste management savings on such returns. I would highly recommend the ShredSmart as a wise alternative toward solving waste management issues in any business model confronted with large volumes of plastic waste.

I just thought I would share a few words on the new ShredSmart 50 that we are now using. First off the unit is very solid and built like a tank. However we were very surprised at how quiet it actually operated. We have used this machine for the last three weeks and have caught up on 12 weeks of shredding for both stores (over 15,000 bottles) in less than 10 days. The unit is very simple to operate and handles bottles and cups flawlessly. It will save us huge amounts of storage space as well as huge dollars in disposal fees for our bottle waste. Our most recent quote for bottle destruction was $1,400 for the month. We are very impressed with this unit and my staff has embraced this new process wholeheartedly. My only regret is not getting one sooner.
