Hard drives are erased using the Department of Defense's DoD 5220.22-M standard, or if necessary, hard drives are physically destroyed. We'll do whatever it takes to ensure your company data does not fall into the wrong hands.

City Rapids Boasts City Fringe Living

The city of Cedar Rapids can be found in the U.S. state of Iowa. It ranks as the 2nd largest city in the state, and also the seat of government of Linn County. According to the 2010 census, the city has a population of 126,326. Geographically, Cedar Rapids is located on both sides of the Cedar Rapids. It is on the east of Des Moines, Iowa’s largest city and its capital, and north of Iowa City. Cedar Rapids is included in the Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is shared with other nearby cities, such as Hiawatha and Marion. The three-county MSA has a population of 255, 452 in the 2008 census. It is also noted that Cedar Rapids is one of the cities around the world with offices for governmental purposes situated on a municipal island. This is due to the 2008 massive flooding, which forced the government of Cedar Rapids to be headquartered on Mays Island, specifically in the Veterans Memorial Building.

The city of Cedar Rapids is known for its nickname, the “City of Five Seasons”. This can be attributed to the centerpiece of Cedar Rapids, the Tree of Five Seasons, a stylized tree that represents summer, spring, winter and fall. Their motto describes the fifth season as the time to enjoy the other four. The city is indeed an urban area with rich natural resources that emphasize the seasons, and encourage its citizens to go out and enjoy life. One of its many natural conservation areas is the Morgan Creek Arboretum. The area houses 250 species or more of shrubs and trees. It also has a butterfly garden that is a delight for hikers and campers.

However, the urban buildings in Cedar Rapids also offer exploration and excitement. As opposed to cross country ski trails, picnic grounds, wetlands and prairies, locals and tourists will also enjoy the concrete maze in the city of Cedar Rapids. The city is home to the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, which keeps the world’s largest art collection of renowned artist, Grant Wood. It is also home to the urban complex of the world’s largest cereal company, Quaker Oats. A National Trust Historic Site can also be found in Cedar Rapids. Brucemore is one of the best historic sites in the country, and it is the only one in the state of Iowa. A few more buildings, such as the African-American Historical Museum, the Cedar Rapids Ceramics Center, Paramount Theatre and the U.S. Cellular Center also add to the urban landscape.
