Fifteen years ago, I worked for a government contractor and I used to tell people that they moved the shredder closer to my printer to make my job easier. This is not necessarily untrue. I did spend about a half hour to an hour a day shredding.

However, now I work for a hospital and not even where patients are and any piece of paper that needs to be disposed of has to go into a special bin which is locked and has just a slot opening. No paper goes in the trash. This apparently is part of our HIPAA rules. I do understand putting any patient data in there, but God forbid that anyone find out what everyone in the department ordered for lunch or that I need to remember to call someone. :P

Ridiculously, we cannot be trusted to shred our own papers so we outsourced it.
