Shred-A-Thon 2017 - June 23, 8am-1pm

Friday June 23 at 8am-1pm the opportunity to shred paper documents with sensitive/confidential information for free will be in front of Foust Building on Administration Drive (see attached map). The mobile shredding truck that will be stationed there is designed to process large amounts of paper on site, users can even choose to watch the secure destruction on a closed circuit TV on the truck.  Confidential materials from your office or home are welcome, this event is limited to UNCG Faculty, Staff, Students and Alumni.  Help will be available to unload your car.  Staples, envelope windows and small paper clips are fine to be included with the material but no binders will be accepted.  Please be sure all paper is out of any binders before bringing your material.  Use proper lifting technique and team work to move paper to the event, paper is deceptively heavy.  
This is a one day event so please prepare your material early, the next opportunity will be June 2018.  Last year about 16,920 lbs. of material was shredded and recycled, which is roughly equivalent to 143 trees worth of paper.

For any questions or assistance with getting records to the event please contact Ben Kunka
