ShredFest is an annual event co-sponsored by IT Services and the Office of General Counsel. During ShredFest, a mobile shredder from ERTH Systems Shredding allows for the disposal of both University and personal, confidential documents. Any faculty, staff, or student may bring documents to ShredFest. For departments, this is an opportunity to bring confidential office and personal documents for secure, on-site shredding.

At the fall 2020 events, ShredFest shredded 4,500 pounds of documents.

Please note: To destroy University documents, you must ensure the documents have reached the end of their retention period and accompany them with a signed Records Disposal Form. See the Office of General Counsel's Records and Retention for Miami's Records Retention Schedule and disposal forms. There have been recent changes to some portions of the records retention policy (e.g., you are now required to keep job search documentation for three years instead of six).
