Re: Document and Media Destruction Services

The State of Vermont has as of November 14, 2005 agreed upon a contract with Shred This Inc. (dba SecurShred) to provide on-site document and media destruction services to state agencies. It is our hope that this will allow state agencies to more efficiently and securely dispose of confidential documents and media. The service offered by SecurShred will allow agencies to discontinue the practice of sending confidential documents and media to the Records Center in Middlesex for destruction; however, Public Records will still allow this material to be sent to the Records Center for the time being. Additionally, all applicable Public Records rules and regulations regarding the destruction of records must continue to be followed.

If you would like more information on this program, please feel free to contact me at 828-1005 or mark.reaves@state.vt.us or Dave Van Mullen at SecurShred 802-863-3003 or info@securshred.com.
