TBS Industries is proud to provide our customers with sound environmental solutions and comprehensive data security. From financial information to highly confidential records, data security is rapidly becoming a critical issue for institutions today. TBS Industries works with schools by helping them with their computer disposal needs and also helps protect data security and privacy issues. With future computer upgrades it becomes a headache and very time consuming when trying to comply with the law and legally dispose of computer systems. TBS eliminates this headache and is a one stop shop when it comes to computer recycling.
Our solution to your data security needs is a thorough removal of data, and is based on the stringent Department of Defense (DOD) “7-times overwrite” standard, and will ensure that your school district fully complies with HIPAA and FERPA laws. When this process is followed correctly, information on the drive is irretrievable, allowing old systems to be recycled, resold, or disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
TBS Industries has current contracts with several school districts for the removal of upgraded and obsolete computer equipment. We welcome the opportunity to review bid list requirements for any school district, and we will design, set up, and implement a cost effective recycling program based on your district’s unique needs. We are sensitive to the demanding timeframe that schools incur, and will always work around your schedule to optimize packing and pickups. Please contact us to set up a pickup or to update bid list requirements.
