Destroy electronics during Shred-a-Thon Oct. 31

As part of National Cyber Security Month, the Office of Information Technology invites campus community members to drop off old electronics before a free shredding event Oct. 31.

Items like personal or departmental computers, cell phones, monitors, keyboards, hard drives, floppy drives, USB and tape drives will all be destroyed and recycled during Shred-a-Thon from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Oct. 31 at the El Pomar Loading Dock.

Items can be dropped off before the event at the Office of Information Technology Help Desk (EPC 108) or OIT Security (EPC 100).

“It can be hard to figure out what to do with old electronics,”Neil Kautzner, IT security analyst –  security, Office of Technology, said. “We’re hoping to help solve that problem for the campus and have fun with it at the same time.”

Employees should ensure records are transferred to a different device in order to comply with CU Administrative Policy Statement #2006.

For questions on the live shredding event, contact OIT.
