If you have any questions, contact us at shreddingservices@niu.edu or 815-753-2042.

Please note: If your department has a regularly scheduled pick-up date, you only need to fill out the form when you have additional shredding that doesn't fit into your bin. Please indicate how much additional shredding you have, so we can alert the company.
