University Shred Day on Oct. 19

K-State is planning a University Shred Day for university paper records 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19. Departments will be asked to place their paper documents with personal identity information (Social Security numbers, birth dates, credit card numbers, etc.)  in designated bags to be delivered to one of two trucks located on campus. If departments can’t bring their documents, iTAC staff will be available for pickup. Please do not leave bags for shredding unattended in the hallways.

Documents to shred include Scantron forms; greenbar grade sheets; rosters printed from K-State Online, iSIS, SIS, etc.; student papers with personal identity information and grades; data with credit card information; personnel files; and more.

Departments should review the Retention of Records policy. For more information about the length of time to retain specific documents, review the Records Retention and Dispostion Schedule.

This service is organized by Information Technology Services in conjunction with Document Resources, Inc. More information will be forthcoming.

NOTE: Personal papers can be shredded at the free Community Shred Day scheduled 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Oct. 9, at the offices of ESB Financial, 224 Poyntz Ave. Check the Manhattan Mercury for more details.
