Procedure for Shredding of Documents

Please follow this procedure when you have documents that need to be shredded by the Central Storeroom:

Miscellaneous Documents

  1. All documents must be free of paper clips and binder clips (staples are okay).
  2. All documents must be removed from folders, binders, etc.
    1. Folders and binders are considered garbage.
    2. Please consider re-using them in your offices if possible.
  3. All documents need to be placed in a box to be transported to the Central Storeroom.
  4. Complete a workorder in the Schooldude workorder system (through maintenance)
    1. Complete all workorder fields; to include 
      1. Number of boxes to be shredded
      2. Location of the boxes
  5. The Central Storeroom will pick up the documents.

Confidential/Personal Documents

Because Central Storeroom cannot guarantee the confidentiality of the documents sent to be shredded, we ask departments to please make arrangements to send an employee or student employee to Robertshaw to do the shredding.

If you are unable to send an employee to shred your confidential documents, we are able to store the documents in a semi-secure area within the storeroom and will shred the documents for you.  Please contact us with questions.

We will be glad to make arrangements to have the documents brought to Robertshaw (using the above procedures). Several departments are currently using this procedure, and it works well.

Any questions or concerns regarding the shredding of university material should be directed to Michele Fatora, 724-357-4074 (
