It can hard to find a paper shredder that fits your needs. Many require a specific size trash can or are too big for household use.
The MailMate which is available at Staples is so compact it can fit on a countertop, in a cabinet or under a table. Also, the lightweight bin is easy to empty.
The heavy duty motor can grind up unopened junk mail, CDs or DVDs (one at a time) and can shred up to ten folded sheets of paper at a time. It also can handle staples and small paper clips.
