In March 2012, the GSA announced that only certified e-waste recyclers (R2 and eStewards) may handle end-of-life electronics from federal agencies including electronics which were bought with federal funds by government contractors. This means that hard drive shredding needs to be done by a certified recycler to be in compliance with the GSA, Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Federal Management Regulation and Executive Order 13514. Hard drives have circuit boards which are a designated “focus material” which is the main reason for these new restrictions.
We hold two GSA Schedule contracts, numbers GS-25F-0019T and GS-10F-0134V. We are also certified by Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS) to store and transport military critical technical data – #51382. We are active members of NAID and have numerous references from a variety of companies and agencies. We received a 94% summary performance rating from Open Ratings – the company that does the investigative work for companies on the GSA schedule. Our degaussers are NSA certified and we have state-of-the-art hard drive shredders.
Our shredding process has been certified by an independent third party using classified recovery methods. A full copy of that report is available upon request. Our service was featured in the front page article in Network World about Data Destruction. Our certified data destruction service was featured on
the TODAY Show.
We provide off-site and on-site shredding and data destruction services nationally. Upon completion, a Certificate of Destruction is provided which is recognized by all government regulators.
