64 & 96 Gallon Bins: Getting to Know the Containers –  In this post we’re getting to know the containers. Those large receptacles where your paper waste is put for shredding.

We love to talk about all things shredding here on the blog and every once in a while, it’s nice to go back to the basics to understand not just the reasons we shred, but also the how and why. 

In this post, we’re getting to know the containers. Those large receptacles where your paper waste is put for shredding. They play a vital role in the overall process. Here’s a little more about them!

About Shredding Equipment

Shredding equipment offers a way to keep the papers you’ve tossed out secure until your pickup day has arrived. The great thing about these containers and bins is that they are locked to stop prying eyes or illicit access to them.

Container Options Include:

  • CONSOLES –  great for office environments has a deadbolt lock
  • BINS – great in many settings, includes a lock 
  • SHREDINATOR fits comfortably under desks and is fully locked
  • BOXES – available in many shapes and sizes 

When it’s time for shredding, our professional team of trained, uniformed staff will unlock and haul away the documents and process them through our giant mobile shredding before we even drive away.

Bins We Offer

We offer 2 types of bins for your convenience: a 64-gallon and a 96-gallon bin. They look similar to a large trash can you’d see outside a property or in a work area. However, both bins include a lock that only Legal Shred and the customer have a key to. Each offers a great way to keep the paper waste – no matter how much you have – protected. 

  • 96 Gallon Bin               
    This bin holds 8-10 copy boxes or 5 transfile boxes and approx. 300-350 pounds. It measures 24.5” W x 34” D x 46” H and is a terrific option for those workspaces that don’t have space constraints. Large warehouses and mailrooms are just a few examples. 
  • 64 Gallon Bin              
    This bin is slightly smaller but can still hold 5-6 copy boxes or 3 transfile boxes as well as approx. 200-250 pounds and measures: 23.25” W x 29.5” D x 40.5” H.
