Hard drives can store a lot of confidential information you’ll need to erase or destroy when you no longer need a computer.

Get in touch now for a free quote or to book a certified 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
