TIP: Clear Your Clutter (27-FEB-2009)
Between January 28 - March 13, 2009 EPA Headquarters is sponsoring a "Clear Your Clutter" challenge to encourage the clean up of work areas. Many other EPA sites may be sponsoring clean-up days, as well.
Records Liaison Officers (RLOs) and other records contacts must be involved with these activities to ensure the proper disposal of records. If cleaning work areas involves eliminating piles of paper or old files, encourage staff to consult the records schedules and work with you or the Records Help Desk to ensure the proper disposition of the records.
See "Frequent Questions about Cleanup Days and Records" for more information about cleaning up work areas and the April 8, 2008 Tip of the Week on unauthorized destruction of records.
