Document Shredding



Confidential Document Shredding:

Documents containing sensitive information such as student tests, employee files, or other confidential records should be shredded. There are 3 data classification levels for campus documents. An explanation of these levels can be found at this link and should be reviewed prior to requesting pick-up of material to be shredded.

No-cost options:

  • Shred small quantities in a desk-side paper shredder.  You can request that the shredded material be picked up by calling AS Recycling, extension 5033.
  • For larger quantities, University Print & Mail Services offers self–service shredding using an industrial strength shredder. They are located in Siskiyou Hall, Room 118. Please call ahead to check the availability of the shredder, extension 5992.  For safety reasons, individuals using the shredder must wear closed toed shoes.

However, if you require a locked bin (64-gallon capacity) in order to shred Level 1 and Level 2 documents other than Student Information (see data classification levels at the link found above) on a one-time basis, please call the FMS office at x6222 to request delivery. There is a $25.00 charge for the first bin and $10.00 for each additional bin (if multiple bins are ordered at the same time).  If the bins are not ordered at the same time, there is a $25.00 charge for each request.  FMS must receive a CAF prior to the delivery of the bin(s).  Please fill the bin(s) within 2-3 days of delivery and call the FMS office at x6222 for bin pick up.

All shredded documents will be recycled and will count towards campus recycling goals.
