Confidential Shred Bins

Document Destruction

Document destruction is the process in which documents are destroyed but are not necessarily locked securely from people’s view. There is limited custodial responsibility for these documents. This is acceptable for times of cleaning out your file cabinets of material you do not want the general public accessing, but are not of the importance level required for long term storage or secure shredding.

To make a document destruction request, place a Service Request to schedule a pickup.

Secure Shredding

Secure, or confidential, shredding is the process in which custody of the records is always maintained. From the time documents are placed in locked containers until they are shredded and baled, they are kept secure. This should be used for documents that have identifying personal information, such as social security numbers or driver’s license numbers.

Secure shredding at Clemson is carried out by a contractor. Secure shredding bin requests can be made as one-time requests, or scheduled on a bi-weekly, monthly, or bi-annual basis. To request secure shredding, please send an email to

Upon receiving your request, we will submit it to the shred vendor for service on their next scheduled service date.
