Shred It

Do you have unwanted personal or confidential papers piling up at home you need to dispose of? On Wednesday, August 9th from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, the University’s shred provider, Shred-it, in conjunction with University Archives at the Hesburgh Library, is offering free and secure confidential document destruction for all University faculty, staff, and students. This event will be held rain or shine.

A Shred-it truck will be parked on the east side of lot C1 located just north of the Holy Cross and Leahy Drive intersection (between the Joyce Center and Compton Family Ice Arena). Please limit your shredding to no more than five standard storage boxes of paper only (non-paper materials will be not be accepted). Make sure to stay until your documents are on the shred truck, and please remove your paper materials from binders (staples and paper clips are acceptable).  

University Archives is once again partnering with campus recycling so you can leave your empty boxes as well. The spring 2017 Free Shred Event drew 118 vehicles and produced 3,500 pounds of shredded material.

If you have any questions, please contact the University Shred Program Coordinator at 574.631.6448 or email at
