Destruction of confidential paper


The Enviroment Area offers to the University managers a document destruction service with safe-diposit boxes, so they can coordinate it within his area of responsability. This service is provided by Recuperaciones Vila, S.L. To request the destruction of documentation and organise its collection, you must send your requests in a joint mail to these addressees:; with the following information:

  • Paper volume to pick up
  • Spaces you have for the boxes placing
  • Deliver address
  • Contact
  • Full telephone number to call from outside the Universit

Requests will be accumulated weekly until Wednesdays at 2 pm, and will supply and collect safe-diposit boxes on Thursdays as scheduled. The time frame in which the safe-diposit boxes remain in your premises is up to 4 weeks. It is very important that you inform all users about the dates in which they will have these boxes available.

Important: You will be provided the safe-diposit box key. Think about a place to safekeep it during the following weeks until the container is picked up.

  The measurements are as follows:
    240 l destruction container: 58 x 68 x 100 cm.
    655 l destruction container: 130 x 70 x 100 cm
