It is recommended that you limit the contents of any box to a single record series or to series having the same retention period. We do not pull individual records from the boxes for destruction- the box contents are all destroyed at the same time. We will use the longest retention period and the latest date to determine the destruction date. Boxes do not have to be completely full to send them to the Records Center. The Records Storage boxes are designed to hold either letter or legal sized materials. When packing the box, it is recommended that you remove paper clips, metal clips, binders, bindings, and file folders. This will save you office supplies, will save space in the box, and will speed processing when the box is due for destruction.
