#628: Shredisorder

When a shredding machine has done its thing, fragments of paper from a single document remain adjacent within the resulting binned material. This makes easier the task of anyone attempting, later, to piece the original together.

To enhance the security of the shredding process, today’s invention effectively shuffles the incoming papers. This would be achieved by having an internal chamber into which some shredded material would be diverted every so often. The next, and presumably related, sheets would then be shredded and fed direct to the final bin. No unshredded material would be kept within the system.

After a while (say after every 10 few pages), the diverted fragments would be binned, so that the bin contents would be more effectively disordered.
