Secure Shredding

The main goal of the Dartmouth Confidential Documents and Materials Shred Program (PDF Version) is to make it as easy as possible for Departments to securely and regularly dispose of confidential materials that do not need to be retained. Records Management owns the College Shred Program, but works with Facilities Operations and Management (FO&M) to pick up material for shredding.

Records Management has a commitment to ensure that all possible record material is recycled upon disposition. The program works closely with Dartmouth Recycles, as well as third party vendors to ensure that wherever possible all paper is diverted from overcrowded landfills.
