Campus-wide Shred Day set for Oct. 5

Mark your calendars for the annual campus-wide Shred Day, which will be Oct. 5, 2018.

From 9 a.m. until noon, Rogers Service Group, the company we have contracted with for on-site shredding, will be on campus for a campus-wide records destruction event. The shred truck will be parked by the loading dock of Netzer. Documents will be shredded on-site and Laura Emmett, Records Management Officer, will oversee the shredding activities. You can deliver documents to be shredded or you can have them picked up.

There will be no cost to departments, but RSVPs are necessary to participate. Attached you will find a Records Destruction Form to be filled out for each set of records you will have destroyed. The destruction forms should be filled out and delivered with the records. To access the Records Retention Schedules that we follow, go to Records Retention Guidelines <>.

RSVP to Laura Emmett at<> at your earliest convenience with the following information:

  *   Your name, department and extension

 *   Approximately how many boxes of records you have

 *   What time you will be dropping off the boxes OR location of records to be picked up (we can arrange to have them picked up anytime between now and Shred Day)

Acceptable items to be disposed of in the shredding bins are:  copy paper, letterhead, computer paper, fax paper, white paper, colored paper, shiny or coated paper, brochures, carbonless forms, staples and paperclips, sticky notes, white envelopes with windows, business cards, manila folders, newspaper and magazines.

SUNY Oneonta is responsible for the items being disposed of in these containers. Should any items be put into these containers that can damage the shredding knives on the Mobile Shredding Unit, SUNY Oneonta will be responsible for the repair costs to the shredder. Items that can damage the shredder are hardened steel items, such as screwdrivers, crowbars, ball bearings, etc.

Items that cannot be put in the bins include: carbon paper, plastic folders, security tapes and microfiche, brown or yellow envelopes, kraft envelopes, paper towels, glass or hanging file folders. Disposal of these items in the standard shredding containers may result in additional charges.
