Data Killers destroys hard drives in Baltimore

Data Killers destroys hard drives in Baltimore and throughout the nation for a variety of customers including corporations, government and military organizations, non-profit agencies, medical facilities, colleges and universities, and law firms.  Our services are certified and compliant with all local, state and federal regulations.  As our nationwide headquarters are centrally located in Maryland, just outside of Washington DC, our trucks are frequently scene in Baltimore and on the entire east coast.

As the largest city in the state of Maryland, Baltimore is also is the second largest seaport in the Mid-Atlantic United States because of its close proximity to the Chesapeake Bay.  With hundreds of identified districts, Baltimore has been dubbed “a city of neighborhoods”, and has been more recently known as “Charm City”.  The Baltimore area is known for health and science, with almost a quarter of the jobs in the region being science, technology, engineering and math positions.  Also, with close proximity to the nation’s capital, Baltimore is also home to many government organizations and contracting companies.  With such a prime location and diverse economy, Data Killers destroys hard drives in Baltimore on a regular basis.

One recent project consisted of on-site hard drive shredding in Baltimore for a nationwide financial services and investment firm headquartered in the Charm City.  In this one day project, Data Killers technicians shredded a combination of hard drives, optical disks, mobile phones and personal digital assistants.  With our state-of-the-art four shaft mobile shredders, we pulled up to our customer’s loading dock to complete the hard drive and media shred while they witnessed.  Prior to shredding their media, Data Killers technicians scanned and captured the serial numbers from all of the media.  This helps our customer account for their media and provides complete asset management.  In addition to scanning the media, our customer’s mobile phones and PDA’s required our technicians to remove their batteries prior to destruction.  The batteries are removed in order to obtain the media’s serial numbers and because we don’t shred batteries as they contain materials like lead that must be treated correctly here in the U.S.  All batteries and resulting particles from the shred were recycled in accordance with all local, state and federal regulations.  Data Killers destroys hard drives in Baltimore and nationwide.  We are the most trusted and reliable data destruction and environmental services company.
