Division of Human Resources Announces Annual Shred-Mania Event

As part of the RecycleMania competition, Kent State University’s Division of Human Resources will partner with the Office of Sustainability to host Shred-Mania on Wednesday, March 30, from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kent State Ice Arena parking lot.

Shred-Mania is open to all students, faculty, staff and the Kent community. Shred-Mania allows participants to recycle unwanted paper documents using a secured, onsite document destruction service. Materials permitted at Shred-Mania include documents, drawings, photos, blueprints, coupons, tickets, checks, magazines, spiral notebooks, hanging folders, paper bags and brochures. It is not necessary to remove paper/binding clips or staples from your documents in order to have them shredded. All shredding will take place on site. Limit of 5 boxes per person for Kent community members.

RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste-reduction activities to their campus communities. Everyone at Kent State is a participant in RecycleMania, an eight-week competition to promote waste-reduction activities on campus. During RecycleMania, which runs through April 2, there are weekly office competitions for faculty and staff. The Kent State office or department with the most participation wins a grand prize and bragging rights. Students participate in RecycleMania through the Hall vs. Hall competition and weekly student competitions.
