The IT@UC Office of Information Security (OIS) provides free document shredding events. All faculty, staff, and students are invited to drop off professional or personal sensitive documents to ensure they are securely destroyed and recycled.
All metal, including paper clips and hanging file folders must be removed in advance; staples are permissible. Plastic also needs to be removed – comb bindings, transparencies, Polaroid pictures, Tyvek envelopes. Anything that cannot be torn is not acceptable.
OIS staff will remain present to ensure that all documents received are properly destroyed.
University records must be destroyed in compliance with the university's records management policy. Information on proper destruction of university's records may be found here or by contacting the University Records Manager.
