A cross cut shredder cuts your documents into small rectangular pieces called "chips". Cross cut shredders are more secure than a strip cut. The size of the chips determines the security level of the shredder. Due to the small size of the chips, the shred bin will hold much more - up to five times as much. This translates into fewer trips to dump the shredded paper.

A micro cut shredder is a cross cut shredder that cuts your documents into extremely small pieces. These are the highest security shredders, for those who have high risk data.

Depending on your shredding needs, either one of these will get the job done for you. Whether you need a small shredder for your home, or a large shredder for your office, there is surely to be a shredder out there for you.

I have several different models of each type of shredder. I hope this information helps.
