WYOMISSING, Pa. — As part of its sustainability initiatives, Penn State Berks had an on-site document shredder on campus for faculty and staff from 9 a.m. to 9:15 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 17, in the Franco Building parking lot.

Document shredding supports Penn State’s sustainability efforts in multiple ways. First, it reduces the space required to store records that are no longer needed. Second, all shredded documents will be properly recycled.

In 2020, Penn State Berks diverted a total of 4,608 pounds of recyclable materials from landfills. Through reduction, reuse and recycling, Penn State Berks strives to move toward environmental sustainability.
