Locked Bins for Recycled Paper

Wondering what happens to the paper?

Ever wonder what happens to the paper in the locked recycle bins around AZPM (and campus)?

David from Facilities Management Recycling called. He said there had been several questions recently about how safe/confidential the bins are and are the contents shredded.

The locked bins go from our office to a recycle yard which is secured behind locked doors. Waste Management then picks everything up from there and takes it to a recycle center where the papers are then sorted and bailed by colors and grades. Everything is then shipped to another facility to be recycled into paper.

He wanted to assure everyone that the documents are secured; all employees who handle the papers are drug and background checked. There have been no issues with any confidentiality breaches.
