Departments: Mark your calendars for a special Summer Shred Day being planned Tuesday, July 15, on the Manhattan and Salina campuses.  This event allows departments to safely dispose of university paper records containing security-related information. 

Departments will be able to take their paper records to the following locations for secure shredding on July 15:

  • Manhattan campus: 8:30-10:30 a.m. outside the K-State Student Union, east side
  • Salina campus: 8:30-10:30 a.m. at the Technology Center loading area, between the east/west wings

Departmental contacts will be asked to sign an authorization document giving permission to Document Resources, Inc. to accept, destroy and recycle materials.

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

Before destroying any documents, departments should review the Retention of Records policy. The length of time to retain specific documents is available from the Records Retention and Disposition Schedule. For additional clarification about that schedule, contact Cliff Hight, university archivist (785-532-3420, chight@k-state.edu).

Document Resources Inc. is on state contract, and pickup of documents is available at other times during the year.
