Confidential Paper Documents
UW Recycling does not accept any confidential paper or shred the paper it receives.
All UWMC affiliated groups should use Shred-It, as a contract for their services has been established.
Option 1: Self-serve
UW Recycling accepts strip-cut and cross-cut shredded paper. Put shredded paper in clear plastic bags, tie the bags securely, and then place them next to a bagit station for collection by Custodial Services. Shredded paper must be in clear bags; do not put it loose into a bagit or a mixed paper toter.
Option 2: Off-site shredding by the state-contracted vendor
LeMay Mobile Shredding provides off-site shredding at a Washington State-contracted rate to all UW departments. LeMay will pick-up bags, boxes, etc. of confidential material and load into their truck for destruction off-site. Off-site services are conducted by using a pulverization process that completely destroys documents. Contact LeMay Mobile Shredding at 877-898-0112.
