The University of Kansas is investigating an allegation that a math department employee routinely threw out student information with the trash. The details are like so many other stories reported on this blog. An employee is too lazy to shred so personal information is left in the trash. I am willing to bet a shredding service that provides convenient locked bins around the office would have saved the University a great deal of money and embarrassment. The could also reduce the headcount of the employees who only shred some of the necessary documents.
