Nationwide On-site Hard Drive Shredding

Nationwide On-site Hard Drive Shredding

The Data Killers fleet of hard drive shredding trucks has been all over the country the last few weeks.  Our nationwide on-site hard drive shredding provides compliant and complete data destruction for all kinds of companies and government agencies.

The first week of October, we provided on-site hard drive shredding services to a commercial client in Rockville, MD.  While this client only required a simple strip-cut shred, they had the option of having their hard drives shredded to 30mm or 10mm.  The 30mm shred ensures that no residual particles are larger than the size of a quarter.  The 10mm option, the most secure of all three, means that no residual pieces of the hard drive will exceed 10mm, which is about the size of a dime.

Later that week, the Data Killers team shredded hard drives for a large military institution in the greater Washington, DC area.

The Midwest team of mobile hard drive shredding trucks was also very busy last week.  You may have seen a Data Killers truck in Chicago last week where we had three big jobs shredding hard drives.  One was for a big government customer, the second was for a large data center operator, and the third was for one of our favorite wholesale companies.  Shredding hard drives in Chicago is always fun for our crew as we have such lovely customers there.

This week we have been busy shredding hard drives in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada.

Next week look for several Data Killers trucks in Dallas and South Carolina.  The project for shredding hard drives in Dallas is for one of our favorite defense contractors who has over 14,000 hard drives and 20,000 tapes.  All this media will need to be both degaussed and shredded to comply with the NSA regulations.  All the equipment that we will be using for this job is NSA-approved and our status for doing this work was confirmed.
