Non-records Purge Week Recycling Drive
Monday, April 23 – Friday, April 27
In recognition of International Records Management and Information Month, UCOP will once again have a non-records purge week recycling drive from April 23—27, with the goal of “D-TOKs-ing” OP of unnecessary non-record materials. Recycling bins will be placed in all UCOP Oakland locations throughout the week.
“Non-records” are materials of immediate value only that are not maintained as administrative records. They include things like data entry sheets, rough drafts, multiple copies of publications, blank forms and all manner of things that are not subject to record retention guidelines.
CAUTION: Please purge only your own materials, not departmental materials or those belonging to your colleagues. Do not discard records that are the subject of a litigation hold or other records freeze or have been requested pursuant to the California Public Records Act, an investigation, an ongoing audit or other legal process.
If you have any questions about whether records are required to be preserved for legal reasons, please contact the Office of the General Counsel.
