Shred Day

2023 Shredding Event

Stay tuned for details about the 2023 shredding event.

Our last two events (held in August 2021 and June 2022) produced a combined 14.7 tons (29,440 lbs) of recycled paper. Stay tuned for details of our next campus-wide shredding event scheduled some time for 2023. See below for details of our last event. 

Things to Keep in Mind

  • This is a courtesy event coordinated and paid for by the Division of Administration and Finance and the Office of Sustainability. Keep in mind that we are servicing an entire campus at one time with limited resources and therefore not every aspect may be 100% convenient.
  • We DO NOT have extra bins. To accommodate an entire campus, the number of provided bins in/for your building may be limited.
  • We will not be able to place bins on your individual floor or in your department.  Please coordinate with your department/office staff to get documents to the bins in your building.
  • Not all bins are the same size.
