The College’s shredding partner, ProShred, will be stationed with their paper and hard drive shredding trucks in front of O’Kane on Linden Lane.
Bring in any paper items, old hard drives, floppy drives, thumb drives, CDs, DVDs, zip drives, audio tapes, and ProShred will physically destroy them onsite.  As before, Environmental Services is sponsoring a container to recycle your computer and computer peripherals as well. ITS staff will assist you with disassembling any old computers for safe disposal.

The previous events have resulted in thousands of pounds of hard drives and paper shredded. All materials destroyed are recycled where possible by ProShred.  All computers and peripherals will also be recycled by Environmental Services.
  • This event is open to Holy Cross Faculty, Students and Staff. Please bring your Holy Cross ID.
  • Bring material from home if you’d like, but the College isn’t responsible for lost or stolen items.
  • Electronic media is limited to hard drives, flash/thumb drives, CD’s, DVD’s, floppy disks, tapes, and zip drives. If you have an old computer, we can help you remove the hard drive that day and Environmental Services will recycle the computer shell and the peripherals (keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc.). Strict limit of 1 monitor per computer.
  • Get the necessary approvals before bringing materials for destruction.
