Data Sanitization

GreenCitizen's Asset Recovery process includes data sanitization according to the DoD 5220.22-M standard. This process, defined by the US Department of Defense, performs a multi-pass erasure of the entire disk to randomize all sectors.

Data Destruction

To eliminate the risks against attempts of reuse or data recovery from corporate computers and devices, GreenCitizen can completely physically destroy disk, tapes, flash memory, RAM, ROM, integrated circuits, DVDs, CDs and computer equipment. GreenCitizen will issue a Certificate of Destruction of all destroyed assets. This service requires an additional charge; ask our Asset Recovery specialists for a quote. GreenCitzen uses industry standard shredding and hard-disk destruction equipment. All destroyed media is then recycled by our downstream partners. GreenCitizen only works with e-Stewards and R2 certified recyclers within the San Francisco Bay Area.

GreenCitizen's mission is to develop a metropolitan sustainable model that provides the most convenient, accountable, responsible data sanitization and destruction services, as well as the reuse and recycling services of electronics for individuals and business in a metropolitan area.

In order to solve the global electronics waste crisis, every metropolitan area should develop its own sustainable model in which all electronics are responsibly reused and recycled within the metropolitan area.
