  • Shredding Procedure

    George Brown College Archives is responsible for all shredding from all departments, offices, and employees of the College. Put quite simply, whatever cannot just be tossed in the recycling bin must be destroyed by the Archives in the manner described by this procedure. Erring on the side of caution, all material containing information about students, employees, and the business of GBC is destroyed in the same manner, ensuring that no sensitive information of any kind will be leaked to the public.


    For more detailed information on the policies and guidelines pertaining to GBC Archives' shredding procedure, please see the Disposal of Information Policy and Records Management Policy Framework under the Archives Policy and Guidelines section.




    The Shredding / Destruction Procedures


    This document is intended to explain both the “how” and the “why” behind the shredding procedure for George Brown College. People familiar with the process will notice that there have been slight changes to the procedure; these are intended to make the process easier for all involved: departments, the Archives, and Tippets Records Management, the company that ultimately destroys the material. Every office, College-wide, must understand this procedure, as every office creates documents that must be destroyed.
