In March 2012, the GSA announced that only certified e-waste recyclers (R2 and eStewards) may handle end-of-life electronics from federal agencies including electronics which were bought with federal funds by government contractors.  This means that computer shredding and hard drive shredding needs to be done by a certified recycler to be in compliance with the GSA, Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Federal Management Regulation and Executive Order 13514.  Hard drives have circuit boards which are a designated “focus material” which is the main reason for these new restrictions.

We are certified by the Defense Logistics Information Service to store and transport military critical technical information. Our NSA confirmed processes and equipment will suffice for all compliance purposes, as will our Certificate of Destruction.
