On-site Hard Drive Shredding in Sacramento

Data Killers is known throughout the nation for our certified data destruction, prompt job execution and commitment to the environment.  With fully equipped destruction trucks, controlled and monitored warehouses and expert technical personnel strategically placed throughout the country we can take on data destruction jobs of all sizes.  One recent large project was enterprise-wide, on-site hard drive shredding in Sacramento.  As a nationwide data destruction provider, Data Killers is able to provide enterprise-wide destruction for satellite offices in any city or state in the US.  Our customer in Sacramento designs and manufactures integrated digital technology platforms.

On the first day of the on-site hard drive shredding in Sacramento, Data Killer’s technicians shredded over 1,500 hard drives using the 30 mm screen on our state-of-the-art, patent protected hard drive shredder.  Prior to shredding the hard drives, we scanned and captured the serial number of each drive while cross-checking our scan with the customer’s pre-supplied list.  After the serial numbers were verified we destroyed the drives and later incorporated them into the Certificate of Destruction as proof of compliance.  In addition to on-site hard drive shredding in Sacramento, we also destroyed 10 bins of mixed media that included CD’s, DVD’s and floppy disks.  For mixed media, our technicians changed the output particle size by utilizing our state-of-the-art 10 mm screen.  Data Killers’ technicians were able to accurately and swiftly execute this portion of the on-site hard drive shredding in Sacramento.

The next day Data Killers’ data destruction trucks and technicians were dispatched to another location for the same customer in Sacramento.  This project consisted of the on-site destruction of 700 hard drives.  In addition to data destruction, this project also involved our Turtle Wings electronics recycling arm to pick-up over 200 pieces of electronics equipment for recycling.  Following this two day project, Turtle Wings/ Data Killers recycled all resulting materials and equipment in full compliance with all local, state and federal regulations with complete downstream accountability.
