O.D.U. Recycling Department Presents:





The O.D.U. Recycling Department offers the service of confidential document shredding to businesses and residents of our campus community. The paper shredding program is staffed by Facilities Management personnel and carried out with secure transfer and processing.

·         On Earth Day in April everyone is asked to bring their documents to the Support Service Division's Recycling Facility at 861 West 45th Street off Killam Avenue on campus. 

·         Making disposal simple for the customer, the recycling department will have a pick-up service available for the campus community. Please call us (683-3005) or e-mail us (hlogan@odu.edu)  for your convenience.

·       Staples, binder clips and metal clips may be left on the documents. After the paper is shredded, it is bundled for reuse in the paper recycling industry.

You hear advice all the time that you should shred sensitive documents to reduce your risk of identity theft. However, what exactly are "sensitive documents," and are there some you should keep for a while before destroying them?
