Certifications

Turtle Wings has all the electronic recycling certifications and data destruction credentials to  effectively recycle computers and destroy data. Turtle Wings is an electronics recycling and data destruction company which holds the following certifications:

Our R2 and E-Stewards Certifications mean that we have an internationally approved environmental, health and safety management system verified by a third party auditor. We have full downstream accountability.  As a certified recycler, we undergo annual audits by a certification entity to ensure that electronics are processed in a manner that protects public health and the environment.  All of our downstream recycling affiliates have been thoroughly vetted and approved so that we can trace each component to its ultimate recycling destination.  Our recycling affiliates have all been chosen based on their globally responsible methods of recycling.

In March 2012, the GSA announced that only certified recyclers can handle end-of-life electronics from federal agencies including electronics which were purchased with federal funds by government contractors.  As a certified recycler, Turtle Wings handles electronics recycling for the many federal agencies and government contractors located in northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC and nationwide for larger government pickups.  Our HUBZone certification helps the government and government contractors to reach their subcontracting requirements and allows for sole-source and set-aside contracts.

We are bonded and fully insured including both E&O and pollution insurance.

We hold two GSA schedule contracts, numbers GS-25F-0019T and GS-10F-0134V. We received a 94% summary performance rating from Open Ratings-the company that does the investigative work for companies on the GSA schedule. We are also certified by the Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS) to store and transport military critical technical data-#51382. We are active members of NAID and have numerous references from a variety of companies and agencies which confirm our expertise in hard drive disposal and data destruction.

We provide the highest levels of customer service and data security. We offer complete auditable compliance of our process with our inventory tracking programs.
