WVU/PACE Shredding Program

How it works:

  1. Customers box documents in cardboard boxes, which will not be returned. Customer DO NOT need to remove paper clips, binder clips, hanging file folders, etc.
  2. Customers fill out the online request form to request a pick-up of documents once they have read and understand the pricing structure and shredding procedures.
  3. PACE Shredding contacts the customer to clarify any details and to schedule a pick-up date and time.
  4. PACE picks up materials and shreds them according to NAID guidelines.
  5. WVU customers receive a certificate of destruction and invoice from WVARF, the administrator of the state-use contract that includes PACE’s services. Payment is due 30 days from billing date.

Minimum Service Charge

A minimum service charge is required for each separate pick-up request form, payment method, and certificate of destruction. For example, if an office has PACE pick-up of 10 boxes on a Monday and 10 boxes on a Friday, each separate pick-up will generate the $31.50 minimum service charge.

Expedited Purge Charge

This charge is applied when a customer requests purge service within 48 hours.

Palletizing Charge

A charge of $1.00 per box will be assessed when a spending unit request bulk removal of 20 or more boxes and the boxes are not placed on pallets and shrink wrap placed around the boxes. If the boxes are palletized and shrink wrap is in place, there will be no additional charge.
