Once the retention period has been fulfilled, and the records destruction certificate has been completed, non-permanent records may be destroyed. The University Archives and Records Program recommends recycling as a method of destruction. Confidential records should be place in a locked recycle bin, and the UK facilities division will handle the shredding of these records. For assistance with shredding and recycling, contact Mari Long, Recycling (859-257-8788 or email@example.com).
