    just found the perfect waste bin for your van.

    after buying various bins only to find they are not suitable....too big/too flimsy ect i came upon this.........

    a disused document shredder bin. just the right size for a carrier bag and with a little thought its easy to make a hanger for it.

    From industrial shredders that need constant maintenance and those made for home use, they never seem to last very long, I have been through a few in the last couple of years. My document destroyer these days involves a box of matches:Smile:

    try feeding a couple of LP's into it, that normally finishes 'em off.:Doh:if that fails, stick a dishcloth in.:thumb:

    my mum-in-law has a 4inch long manual, hand cranked shredder, she sits for hours shredding her newspapers, old mags ect:Eeek:..........one page at a time:Eeek::Eeek:.
    she really should get out more. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
