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.
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
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.
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.
