Clemson’s Office of Information Security and Privacy is sponsoring the 4th annual Shred Bowl on Wednesday, November 16th, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Littlejohn Coliseum’s North Lot. Shredding materials containing personal or sensitive information can help to combat the ever-growing problem of identity theft.  This event is free and open to the public, and will be a competition between Clemson and the University of South Carolina leading up to the Clemson-Carolina football game. Chapin-based certified document destruction company Shred360 will be on hand to shred sensitive items such as personal documents, transcripts, and receipts.  Participants will be able to drive right up to have their materials shredded.

Destruction of paper-based products will be completed onsite at the mobile shredding unit.  Those who want to rid themselves of university- or personally-owned hard drives can do so any time of the year at the University Surplus on Perimeter Road. The facility offers a Department of Defense-approved hard drive crusher on site to physically destroy the hard drive.
