UC to host university-wide shred event

The UC Office of Information Security provides document shredding for 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  UC Records Management.

Date and time

Our next shred event is planned for Thursday, June 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Commons' Lot A behind Arts & Sciences Hall.

You can follow the Office of Information Security on social media for updates. Look for them on Facebook , Twitter, and  Instagram.
