Only two weeks left until Shred Day Oct. 15

Submitted by Betsy Edwards

Departments on the Manhattan and Salina campuses have about two weeks to finish collecting papers for free, secure disposal on K-State Shred Day. The event is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Manhattan campus and 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Oct. 15, on the Salina campus.

Departmental contacts must bring a signed authorization document giving permission to Document Resources Inc. to accept, destroy and recycle materials. Electronic media and wet or contaminated paper will not be accepted. See below for drop-off and pickup times.

  2. Clearly label each container for "Shred Day."
  3. Make sure each bag or box is less than 25 pounds.
  4. Do not leave documents for shredding in hallways or public areas.
