Secure Data Destruction

Today, more than ever, Minneapolis companies discarding computer equipment are concerned about identity theft, security compliance, and cyber criminals trying to obtain private information.

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.

Minneapolis: The Country’s Mini Apple

Minneapolis is one of the cities in the U.S. state of Minnesota. Officially, the city is considered as the seat of government of the Hennepin County. Statewide, Minneapolis is the largest city. In terms of geography, the city of Minneapolis has access to abundant sources of water. It is specifically along the banks of the Mississippi River, specifically on the north of the confluence between the Mississippi River and the Minnesota River. The city is adjoined to Saint Paul, which is the capital city of the state of Minnesota. Minneapolis and Saint Paul are better known as the Twin Cities. The city has a total area of 58.4 square miles, of which 54.9 square miles are land and the other 3.5 square miles are water.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total population of 382, 578 as of 2010. At 2012, the population is estimated to rise to 392, 880. Among all the U.S. cities, Minneapolis ranks 47th most populous city. Its metropolitan area has a population of 3, 422, 264, which ranks 16th largest MSA in the whole United States.

Many people would be surprised to know that the city of Minneapolis is just second to New York City’s thriving cultural scene. Due to such similarities, locals and foreign tourists fondly called Minneapolis as the “Mini Apple”. The title holds truth, since the city is nearly at par with the live theater community in the vibrant New York City. An influx of tourists floods the city during the performance seasons to experience the vibrant art and culture, without the hassle of competing with thousands of people, unlike in the streets of New York City. In terms of theater markets, the city came 3rd next to the cities of New York City and Chicago. To encourage the theater community, the city government openly supports the performances of local groups, such as the Minnesota Dance Theatre, Illusion Jungle, Children’s Theatre Company, Red Eye, Bedlam Theatre, Lundstrum Center for the Performing Arts, Skewed Visions, Mixed Blood Penumbra and Brave New Workshop among others.

Performing arts venues are also present to host a variety of symphonies, operas and theater shows all year round. The city of Minnesota has a number of famous event venues within its borders, including the Orchestra Hall, Guthrie Theater, Pantages Theatre, Orpheum Theatre and Carnegie Hall. There are also film houses that were renovated in order to host performances for patrons in the city.
