Spread the Word: Collect Personal Documents and Computer Hard Drives for Free Shredding at the Employee Resource Fair

Did you know that during the annual Employee Resource Fair, Penn's shredding vendor, Nova Records Management, will shred personal papers free of charge for Penn employees? This shredding service provides a great opportunity to reduce risks such as the possibility of identity theft by securely disposing of confidential papers that are no longer needed. A related Penn vendor, Gigabiter, will securely shred personally owned computer hard drives, and properly dispose of personal consumer electronics (such as old TVs and monitors) that are brought to the Fair, at no charge to Penn employees.

The Fair will take place in the Hall of Flags, Houston Hall on Monday, October 19, noon to 2 p.m. To take advantage of these opportunities, start gathering unneeded documents and electronics now. On the 19th, simply bring as many documents as you can carry to the Nova shredding truck that will be located on the walkway between College Hall and the Fisher Fine Arts Library during the Fair. Your papers will be shredded on site at no charge. Have your selected hard drives shredded, at no cost to you, at the Gigabiter truck that will be located on Spruce Street outside of Houston Hall during the Fair. "The best way to protect confidential information is not to have it" and this is a great way to get rid of it! In addition, bring your old consumer electronics to the Gigabiter truck at the Fair for free, environmentally sound disposal.
