Hard Drive and Media Shredding in the DC metropolitan

With the start of the spring season, Data Killers trucks have been on the road in all parts of the country providing an assortment of our specialized data and product destruction services.  Recently, we coordinated a team of technicians to do an enterprise wide destruction for a government agency headquartered in the DC metropolitan area.  As one of our loyal repeat customers, this agency desired on-site hard drive and media shredding in the DC metropolitan at two of their locations. 

On the first day of the project, Data Killer’s technicians arrived bright and early at our customer’s facility to shred 1,000 pieces of mixed media including hard drives, back-up tapes, mobile phones, personal digital assistants, optical disks and diskettes.  In addition to shredding their media, we also scanned the serial numbers of the hard drives, mobile phones and PDA’s which provides our customer with complete asset management and inventory management.  As this portion of the project was completed in under 4 hours, our technicians hit the road to our customer’s other location to begin the on-site hard drive and media shredding there. 

This portion of the enterprise wide destruction began in the afternoon and consisted of shredding over 3,000 hard drives along with a large combination of mixed soft media devices.  As the day progressed, Data Killer’s technicians worked hard and diligently to shred our customer’s media in a timely fashion.  On the next morning, our technicians returned to that same location to complete this on-site hard drive and media shredding in the DC metropolitan for our repeat customer.  The remainder of the project did not take the entire day; however, our customer added more media which Data Killer’s technicians willingly destroyed in compliance with all local, state and federal regulations. 

As a pioneer in the data destruction industry, Data Killers works hard to complete jobs and we always go the extra mile to exceed our customer’s scheduling needs and specialized destruction requirements.  This on-site hard drive and media shredding in the DC metropolitan shows Data Killer’s ability and willingness to serve our customers and be a leading multifaceted company in the data destruction industry.
