CDS was founded in 2006 by Phil Saraiva and Jim Saraiva, in response to a story they heard. The story went like this:
Jim was employed recycling computers when he began speaking with an employee of a large account. This company mentioned to Jim that he had, on hand, approximately 200-300 hard drives that needed to be destroyed, but he couldn’t hand them over to Jim for an interesting reason. Several years prior, this large company had experienced a security breach, and consequently, had implemented an information security policy to prevent future breaches. According to the new policy, each of eight locations now stockpiled their hard drives. Periodically, the Head of Security for the company, personally drove to each location, secured the drives, and transported them to the North East to be shredded. Each location typically stockpiled 1,000 hard drives for a total of 8,000 to be transported and destroyed.
Ah-ha! A light bulb flashed on for the Saraiva brothers. Wouldn’t it be more efficient and much more security-conscious, for one truck with a very large shredder to drive to eight individual locations, rather than hard drives from eight locations be transported miles across the country? Discussions commenced, Phil hopped on research, a truck was procured from eBay, and the business was born.
