Mobile shredder trucks-argh

Do you work downtown? Do you wander about the streets? Have you ever been drowned out in a conversation with a buddy due to a mobile shredder semi? I have.

These guys are all over now, picking up all those sensative documents downtown companies create and shredding them. A) what happened to paperless office? B) what did we do before the mobile shredder?

My complaint is that these big rigs park on the public street and shred for up to an hour. And it is loud. You can’t ignore it either. I have been in a 6th floor conference room and we had to move the meeting due to the noise.

How can this be legal? I can get a ticket if my car stereo is thumpin’, but these guys can make this noise for extended periods of time.

    All of a sudden, I’ve been seeing these in Philadelphia all over the place, too. I don’t get it either.

    The law changed last year. It now requires all business to shred anything that could be used to steal identity. I hate the trucks too, but on the other hand, I’ve had my identity stolen and know what that is like.
