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. They 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.

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 submit a non-emergency request online found at this link. There is a $35.00 charge for each bin.  Due to confidentiality requirements, we cannot unlock the bins.   Please fill the bin(s) within 5 business days of delivery.

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