ShredFest 2020 Postponed to October

Due to the current remote work and instruction environment, we have postponed ShredFest this spring. Look for announcements later in the fall for an October date to coincide with National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

ShredFest is an annual event co-sponsored by IT Services and the Office of General Counsel. During ShredFest, a mobile shredder from Document Destruction 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 spring 2018 events, ShredFest shredded 9,750 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 the 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).
