Save the Date: ShredFest 2018

ShredFest is your opportunity to bring confidential office and personal (check stubs, bank documents, tax returns, etc.) documents for secure, on-site shredding. (It is advised that you separate your personal and Miami documents before you bring them to the shred event.)

A mobile shredder from Document Destruction will be at the Oxford campus Thursday, May 17, (during finals week) between 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. at Cook Field (near Pulley Tower).Box of file folders next to a pile of shredded paper and a stack of files

The shredder will also visit the regional campuses on Monday, May 21. It will be at Middletown in the parking lot outside of Johnston Hall from 9-11 a.m. and at Hamilton in the parking lot outside Wilks Conference Center from 1-3 p.m.

Last spring 135 people attended the event and shredded nearly 9,000 pounds of documents. That surpassed the previous year’s mark of about 8,400 pounds at this annual event, co-sponsored by IT Services and the office of general counsel.

Please note that university documents must have reached the end of their retention period and be accompanied by a signed Records Disposal Form. The Miami University Records Retention Schedule and disposal forms are available from the office of general counsel website.
