"Grosse Ile Township has utilized Pure Data Services document destruction services for 6.5 years, and we couldn't be more satisfied. Their team is professional, efficient, and handles the sensitive nature of document disposal with the utmost care. The secure and confidential process provides us with peace of mind, knowing that our sensitive information is thoroughly and irreversibly destroyed. I highly recommend Pure Data Services for their reliable and trustworthy document destruction services."
Bryan FrielDeputy Clerk, Grosse Ile Township
"We have been working with Pure Data for a while now and we love their service. During the Foundation’s suite renovation and moving process, our team noticed that there were several confidential documents that we preferred to be secured and shredded offsite. Pure Data allowed us to keep their locked privacy bins for 2 extra weeks, which allowed staff to safely discard of sensitive material. They were very patience with our team during this transition and continues to be a valued service provider. I recommend their team and service for your recycling and shredding needs."
Simonne SearlesOperations Manager, The Skillman Foundation
"The Woodhaven-Brownstown School District used to spend countless staff hours shredding documents. I did a feasibility study in 2019 and found that it would cost our district far less to have a periodic shredding service come and place bins in our schools and administration building and then exchange them quarterly. I requested bids in early 2020 and Pure Data Services in Wyandotte, MI responded with a very professional service outline at a very competitive cost model. We've been with Katie and Russ Chambers and their entire staff at Pure Data Services since Spring 2020 and I can honestly say their service is amazing, extremely flexible and always timely! We couldn't be happier with their service at the Woodhaven-Brownstown School District. Pure Data Services is the epitome of excellent customer service! Thank you, Katie, Russ, Christine and your excellent crew!"
Ken BarnesExecutive Assistant, Business Office, Woodhaven-Brownstown School District

Meet our extraordinary founder.


Katie Chambers

Founder and CEO
Several years ago I replaced the computers and network in our large office. At the end of the project I asked the provider what they would do with the old equipment we had replaced, and—more importantly—what would happen to the information on the hard drives. They offered no solution, and having decided not to hand the hard drives over to them, I was left with a closet full of electronics and a lot of sensitive information to protect. If I had this problem, I knew I wasn’t alone; many others did too. So, I set out to find a solution and ended up creating one: Pure Data Services! Businesses, government offices and individuals frustrated with the buildup of documents and electronics containing sensitive information now have a local resource for securely destroying that information.

Hailing from the County Wicklow in Ireland, Glen of Imaal dogs were bred to be “stable as a rock with courage and tenacity to execute his authority and the instinct to know when to use it.” Ziggy certainly lives up to his heritage. On our premises, Ziggy will greet you, guide you and protect you.
