Data Killers Featured in Recycling Today

Data Killers has announced that it has opened three new locations. The company, headquartered in Washington, D.C., now has locations in Chicago; Sacramento, Calif.; and Dallas. “The demand of our customers required us to expand,” says Elizabeth Wilmot, company president.

Each location offers mobile shredding services for a variety of items, including hard drives, tapes, products, equipment and military gear.

“Our new mobile shredding trucks each contain powerful four-shaft shredders with several screen sizes to control the shred size,” says Rodney Young, operations manager of Data Killers. “We can cut any object into miniscule pieces because we have large hoppers which will fit any type of equipment. This shredding system will allow us to service many industries.”

Wilmot says, “We have seen tremendous growth in data and product destruction. The other hard drive shredding companies can only shred into strips. Unfortunately, data can be retrieved relatively easily from strips of hard drives.” She adds, “We can completely grind hard drives down to granules right at someone’s site while they watch.”

Young says, “The power demands of a large shredder with screens have not been easy to fill in a mobile setting, which is why no one else is doing this like we are.” He continues, “Our fabricators were able to use new electrical technology to power these shredders right from our trucks. We provide real shredding services right at the customer’s location. In addition to our shredding services, we offer degaussing and demil services.”

Data Killers is the data and product destruction arm ofTurtle Wings Inc.
