Data destruction contract with US Census Bureau

Data Killers : 19 June, 2009  (Application Story)
Washington based US Census Bureau contracts Data Killers to perform on-site data destruction including the safe removal of all information which is no longer needed on electronic media
Data Killers has been awarded a year long contract by the US Census Bureau of Washington, DC. The nationally recognized data and product destruction company has been contracted to perform on-site data destruction services at all US Census Bureau sites throughout the greater Washington, Baltimore, and Northern Virginia area. The year-long contract, with options to extend, covers on-site shredding of all media types including hard drives, back-up tapes, CD's and other types of magnetic media.

"The Census Bureau collects a lot of information. They wanted to be sure that all that information was safely destroyed on their premises when it was no longer needed. We brought in our on-site shredder and shredded several thousand pieces for them under the first part of this contract. We have the NSA-approved equipment for all types of media destruction including classified materials," added Rodney Young, Operations Manager.

Data Killers, a division of Turtle Wings Electronics Recycling, is a woman-owned, hub-zoned company with multiple GSA contracts. "Since we have held the GSA contract for shredding media for almost two years, our Certificates of Destruction have become nationally recognized," said Zack Boorstein, Vice President. "We perform shredding and degaussing work both on-site and off-site for a number of government agencies and have developed a great reputation."

"Everyone knows that the Census Bureau is gearing up for the 2010 count of everyone living in the United States as mandated by the US Constitution. I imagine we will be busy helping them protect all this data!" added Boorstein.

Turtle Wings / Data Killers is an environmental services company, founded in March 2005, that provides the following services: Electronics recycling with complete asset management tracking capabilities; Data destruction services - both on-site and off-site; Witnessed destruction services for all products; and De-installations of data centres.
