Shredding

Rose Garden Gate

Shredding events for faculty and staff only are scheduled twice a year, usually in the fall and again in the spring. No personal documents will be accepted.

Document Security Management Company provides Swarthmore College with confidential shredding services. A Document Security employee with a badge will pick up your packaged papers, dump them in a locked canister and wheel them directly to the truck. Office Services staff also monitor these activities for added security.

An announcement of the upcoming event will be sent through an all faculty/staff email and will also be published on the Campus Calendar.

A week after the general announcement, an individual Email message will be sent to Administrative and Academic offices notifying Administrative Assistants of the upcoming event. This email will contain information to access the shredding request form for you to complete and email back to us.

When all forms have been received, Joann or Tarsia will notify you of your scheduled time of pick up. Because of time constraints, please be in your office at the scheduled time. No schedule time can be changed.

At this time this service is a courtesy provided by Office Services, but depending on cost increases a minimal charge may be charged to your department in the future.
