Why do we shred hard drives and other data storage media to such a strict standard? Because recycling your old office computer and other electronics without physically destroying the hard drive could result in your confidential information ending up in the wrong hands.

How Our Hard Drive and Media Destruction Process Works

Step 1: Extract Hard Drives/Media

You remove hard drives or other data storage media from electronic devices so they can be securely shredded.

Step 2: Transport to Shredding Plant

Our service technician places your media in a locked collection container and transports it to our secure shredding plant.

Step 3: Shred Hard Drives

All hard drives and media are shredded into small pieces by our industrial-strength shredder to render their information irretrievable.

Step 4: Provide Documentation

We provide you with a Certificate of Destruction and a serial number list so you have complete documentation that you have a complete chain of custody and proof that the data has been destroyed in compliance with federal and state data privacy laws.

Step 5: Recycle Materials

Your shredded material is recycled to create new products and prevent toxic materials from harming the environment.
