UC Office of Information Security (OIS) provides document shredding events to all students, faculty, and staff. You are invited to drop off professional or personal 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. For further information refer to their website: https://libraries.uc.edu/libraries/arb/records-management.html
