Turtle Wings Swoops Down Again

Turtle Wings Swoops Down Again.  Turtle Wings Electronics Recycler seems to be all over the place these days!

In April, coinciding with a number of Earth Day activities, Turtle Wings held collection events in conjunction with Whole Foods, Potomac School, Reston Association, WRNR Annapolis, and Cox Communications.  Turtle Wings executives have been featured speakers at the Sustainable Business Network of Washington and at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.

Turtle Wings is a woman-owned company with a no e-waste landfill policy that facilitates the reuse and recycling of electronics. “Our mascot is emblematic of our dedication to recycling.  The green turtle symbolizes our commitment to the Earth and the wings symbolize the ease with which we can come in and remove electronics and angelically save the earth from electronic waste.  Our tag line has always been “The Earth Matters” and we urge people to be globally responsible in their daily lives,” says Elizabeth Wilmot, President to of Turtle Wings.

Turtle Wings was formed by the recent merger of Turtle Wings and PC Recycler.  They pick up and recycle all unwanted electronic equipment throughout the mid-Atlantic and North East from there three locations.  Turtle Wings also provides de-installation, removal and recycling services for: robotic arms; telecom equipment; mainframes; tape libraries; lab equipment; production equipment, etc.

Turtle Wings has a division called Data Killers that provides certified data destruction services to nationwide customers. Data Killers holds the federal government contract for destroying data and can shred and/or degauss any type of hard drive, back-up tape, thumb drive, blackberry, or cell phone.  Data Killers provides both on-site and off-site data destruction services and can destroy up to and including classified materials.

“Certified data destruction has become an increasingly important piece of our business as our customers become more and more concerned with data security issues, “said Jeff Farber, the Sr. Vice President of Turtle Wings and Data Killers.  “There are a lot of regulations that require companies to properly destroy their data and we have  services that offer complete compliance with these regulations including HIPAA, PCI, GLBA, FACTA, S-OX, and a variety of other laws.  With our NSA-approved equipment, in our SCIF-type facility, we can destroy classified materials but we treat all our customers’ materials as if it was classified.  The absolute security of our customer’s data is our number one priority.”
