UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Shred-a-Thon 2013 is June 14

On Friday, June 14, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., you’ll have the opportunity to shred paper documents for free.

The event will be at the Walker Ave. traffic circle close to the EUC Bookstore and Jackson Library Connector Entrance. It is open to all members of the campus community.

The mobile shredding truck is designed to take large amounts of paper for shredding onsite. Users can even choose to watch the secure destruction on a closed circuit TV on the truck. Confidential materials from your office or home are welcome.

This event is limited to UNCG faculty, staff, students and alumni. Help will be available to unload your car at the traffic Walker Ave. traffic circle but no parking will be available. The traffic circle must remain free of parked cars.

Staples, envelope windows and small paper clips are fine to be included with the material but no binders will be accepted.

Last year about 30,000 pounds of material was shredded and recycled. That is roughly equivalent to 255 trees’ worth of paper.

For any questions or assistance with getting records to the event, contact Ben Kunka, bakunka@uncg.edu.

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://uncg.libguides.com/university_archives.
