It's just this simple: you feed all your papers into a tray. The tray feeds into a scanner. The scanner checks for sensitive information (such as address, credit card info, social security number, etc.) and seperates the papers into two groups. The non-sensitive papers are ejected into a bin to be recycled. The sensitive ones continue on to the shredder. How about it?

       Why the distinction between shredding and recycling? Can't you recycle shredded paper?

       I would guess something inbetween those two extremes.
