Confidential Document Shredding

Some of the office paper on campus contains sensitive information and must be shredded before it can be recycled.

Records Retention

All University departments must have an approved Records Disposition Request on file prior to destroying any public records. This is in accordance with the rules set out in Chapter 1B-24, Florida Administrative Code.

To ensure the proper disposal of public records and understanding on public records retention rules, contact a Records Management Liaison Officer at recordsmgmt@fsu.edu or visit this website: https://recordsmanagement.fsu.edu/.

Shredding and Recycling

Confidential documents pickup can be submitted through an online Work Order request, or by calling the Facilities Service Center at 644-2424.

Documents can be put into securely taped boxes labeled “Confidential Shredding” or Waste Management can deliver zippered bags to your department. We will then pick up the material to-be-shredded, weigh it at your location, and provide a receipt for the service.

Confidential shredding costs $0.12 per pound.

The documents are secured until they are loaded onto a conveyer belt and fed through our large paper shredder. This is more efficient than trying to hand feed thousands of sheets of paper into the shredder and improves on the safety of the procedure.

After the paper is shredded, it is baled and sent to paper recyclers in the region.
