Hard Drive Destruction Service

If you’re looking for a reliable computer recycling company near you, use Gigacycle’s hard drive destruction service. Hard drives can store a lot of confidential information you’ll need to erase or destroy when you no longer need a computer. Our secure hard drive destruction solutions are available for both domestic and commercial clients, offering a free collection service across UK locations. Get in touch now for a free quote or to book a certified destruction.



    What Is Hard Drive Destruction?

    Hard drive destruction is a popular form of media destruction, which could encompass a range of secure techniques. Just as you can shred a confidential waste document via paper shredding and recycling, you can also physically shred some IT equipment. However, there are also alternative media destruction solutions to shredding hard drives, such as data erasure and degaussing.

    How Do I Dispose of a Hard Drive?

    When disposing of a hard drive, there are multiple elements to consider. This includes data protection and how to ensure methods are as environmentally friendly as possible. Many companies even choose to implement internal policies for destroying hard drives and other computer equipment as part of their privacy policy. If you don’t take it seriously, data on your computer media or hard drives could end up in the wrong hands, breaching official data regulations. As a result, companies without the right destruction policy in place could receive a hefty ICO fine.

    Therefore, if you want to dispose of a hard drive, you must hire a professional computer waste recycling and hard drive destruction specialist. This gives you peace of mind that you’re using secure services.

    How Much Does It Cost to Destroy a Hard Drive?

    So how much does it cost to destroy or shred a hard drive? This will depend on the type of services you’re looking at and the company you use. The easiest way to know is to contact the shredding specialist for a quote and get more information about what each service includes. They may even provide a free secure collection for shredding services.

    What Are Shredding Services?

    Shredding services are one of the main types of hard drive destruction in the UK. Hard drive shredding involves the use of a machine which can break down equipment into tiny particles as small as 6 millimetres. Essentially, a shredding service is a bit like paper shredding for a confidential waste document, but the shredding machines require more advanced capabilities. 

    Is Data Erasure Better?

    There are several hard drive destruction services you can choose from. We often get asked if data erasure is better than hard drive shredding, but every company’s needs are different. 

    A data erasure service is often the preferred data destruction technique to ensure all confidential information is completely overwritten on the device. You may even choose a shredding service afterwards to ensure the hard drive is completely destroyed. 

    Erasure is also a better destruction service if you’d like to reuse the hard drive or sell it on to generate revenue. Other hard drive destruction services, such as shredding or degaussing, would leave the drive unusable.

    What Types of Device Can You Destroy?

    At Gigacycle, we destroy a wide range of devices, including some of the following items as part of our IT product destruction and shredding service.

    ·     Hard drive shredding

    ·     Magnetic media shredding

    ·     USB shredding

    ·     CD and DVD shredding

    ·     Much more!

    If you don’t see what you need on this list (including any items you want to shred), contact us. However, we can erase and recycle most other types of computer equipment. We can provide both a one off shredding service as well as regular pickups if required, as well as both secure on site and off site shredding.

    Do You Provide a Certificate of Destruction? 

    Yes! As part of our secure hard drive destruction service, we can generate a certificate of destruction for any asset or data we destroy.
