Secure Data Destruction

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.

The Diverse Cityscape of Columbus

The city of Columbus is situated in the U.S. state of Georgia. Columbus is also considered as a consolidated city- county, which is the combination of the state’s administrative division (county) and the municipal corporation (city). As a consolidated city-county, Columbus has both the responsibilities and power of both legal entities. Geographically, it is on the southwest of Atlanta amidst hilly lands, flat terrain and coastal plains. Specifically, Columbus can be found at the Chattahoochee Valley’s center. The city is the seat of government of the Muscogee County, and also considered as one of the three Fall Line Cities of Georgia, along with Augusta and Macon. According to the United States Census Bureau, the consolidated city-county has a population of 198, 413, making it the state’s 2nd largest city. Columbus is also part of the Columbus- Phoenix City Metropolitan Area with an estimated population of 310, 531, which justifies its rank as the 4th largest MSA in the state. In terms of Combined Statistical Area or CSA, Columbus merges with the population of some cities of Alabama, such as Opelika and Auburn. The Columbus- Auburn- Opelika CSA has a population estimate of 491, 852 as of 2012.

Although the city of Columbus is primarily filled with hills and coastal plains that complete a breathtaking panoramic landscape, the city’s technology and the economy made way to a diverse cityscape that define Columbus as a cosmopolitan location of fast-paced living. The citizens in the city can still enjoy the natural resources in some of Columbus’ natural open spaces, but the city center is already dominated with concrete mazes and towering facades that give life to the city-county. The cityscape of Columbus is split into 5 areas, namely: Midtown, Downtown, East Columbus, South Columbus and North Columbus.

Midtown is considered to be both a commercial and residential geographic area. There are major shopping malls in the area, such as the Peachtree Mall and The Landings. Downtown, which is also referred as Uptown, is recognized as the central business district of Columbus. It also houses some of the historic sites and tourist attractions such as the Church of the Hoy Family, the Mott House and the Columbus Historic Riverfront Industrial District.

The largest among the five areas is the East Columbus. One of its landmarks is the Bull Creek Golf Course, which is included in the city’s list of the largest golf courses. South Columbus is commonly known as the home of the National Infantry Museum, which boasts the legacy of the U.S. Army’s infantry forces. Lastly, North Columbus is considered as a suburban area with new subdivisions, upscale locations and established neighborhoods.
