This year we are testing a limited service for shredding light storage media (floppy disks, flash drives, etc.). Hard drives will not be accepted. As in the handling of paper, the media must be delivered in boxes weighing less than 25 pounds each. The collected media will be destroyed by the vendor. iTAC reserves the right to refuse items that are unacceptable for transport, or too large for reasonable accommodation. For any questions regarding this service, please contact the iTAC reception desk at 785-532-4918.
