Shredding Program

The Archives administers the University shredding program, which provides in-office shred bins for confidential records destruction. Participating offices receive secured bins for depositing materials that require shredding. Shred bins are emptied every four weeks and the contents are shredded on campus by Shred-it. This is a service provided by the University and there is no charge to participating offices. Email records@nd.edu to learn more about participating.

Shred bins are intended for the destruction of paper records generated in the day-to-day course of business. Records may include staples and paper clips. Paper should be removed from binders. Shred bins are not intended for annual purges or cleanups and should not be used for CDs, computer disks, or hard drives. Bulk shreds are instead handled during Special Shreds, described below.

Shred bins are serviced according to the following roster.

Special Shreds

Non-routine shredding services, such as bulk shredding or emptying bins early, take place pursuant to Shred-it's availability. Shred bins are not intended for bulk records destruction or for non-paper records. When an office needs to destroy large quantities of records, such as when purging files in accordance with records retention schedules, the office should contact the Archives to request a Special Shred. Special Shreds may also be requested for destruction of computer hard drives and other digital media, or if shred bins have reached capacity before an office's next regular visit.

Submit a Special Shred Form to request non-routine services
from Shred-it during the next available service visit
