Facilities Management contracts Shred-it for on-site confidential document shredding at the university. Only Shred-it employees have keys to open the secure containers which are located in central locations (pdf). The containers are emptied and the contents shredded immediately on-site on a monthly basis. The shredded material is then taken to a facility to be recycled. Certificates of destruction are kept on file which include a running total of the number of trees we, as a Campus, have saved as a result of the shredding program.
The shredding bins are for confidential documents only. For other items please see Recycling. If you have a large amount of confidential documents to be shredded, please contact Melissa Caron at 303-724-1028 or Melissa.Caron@ucdenver.edu or the Customer Service Center at 303-724-1777.
