Hi Sara and welcome. I noted your comment in another thread about you using a shredder for cardboard. I wanted to ask what brand and model shredder it was, please?

Ativa at-mc600 I pinched it from my husbands office ;) It says it does 6 sheets. I think I would opt for one that does 8. I tare it to fit and shed it so the corrugated bits ( the paper lines you see across the cardboard go in first not with  the wavy holes along the edge. I Just back up if it grumbles. It wont take the real thick stuff but munches up the thickness of say a postal box quite nicely.
