Ever wonder what happens to the papers we place in the Cintas Security containers conveniently located on levels 2 (behind Circulation), 4 (in the Reference workroom), and 8 (in room 802)? Well today while walking in to the Library I happened to see the Cintas truck getting ready to load and shred the contents of our bins! I pulled out my trusty cell phone and took a picture.
As you can see from the photo, the Cintas Security containers are emptied into a large rolling bin that attaches to the side of the truck and is lifted up and dumped into the truck. The screen by the operator allows people to see the contents of the bins being shredded as they enter!
