Shred-a-Thon 2011 on June 10

In 2010, UNCG recycled 9.7 tons of paper at the Shred-a-Thon. That’s the equivalent of about 165 trees, says Ben Kunka (Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling.)

The office will host this year’s Shred-a-Thon on Friday, June 10, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Walker Circle area near the Jackson Library Tower and Elliot University Center. Car drop-off is available at this convenient location during this event; a staff member will help you unload. All staff, faculty and students may bring any paper records they have from their offices or homes to have them shredded and recycled free of charge. Only paper records please; staples and paper clips are fine to include but please remove paper from any binders or hard folders.

  • For any questions or assistance with getting records to the event, contact Ben Kunka at 334-5192. Assistance will only be available until Wednesday, June 8.
  • Keep in mind some records you may encounter have historical significance. Please refer to University Archives for more information about what records need to be saved and transferred to University Archives, http://library.uncg.edu/depts/archives/universityrecords/transfer.asp.
  • UNCG is required to comply with the North Carolina Public Records Law concerning the retention and disposition of records. Records are to be disposed of according to University and State approved schedules. The UNC General Records Retention and Disposition Schedule is available on the Records Management web site at http://its.uncg.edu/Records_Management/. If you have questions about records management, contact 6-TECH at 256-8324.
