Members of the UNCG community will have the opportunity to shred paper documents for free Friday June 13, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The event will be at the Walker Ave. traffic circle close to the EUC Bookstore and Jackson Library Connector Entrance.
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. Be sure all paper is out of any binders before bringing your material.
At last year’s UNCG Shred-a-Thon, about 32,000 pounds of material was shredded and recycled, roughly equivalent to 272 trees’ worth of paper.
