Hard drives can store lot of confidential information. Even if you try to wipe them yourself, IT experts can often recover data, which means you must be careful about what you do with old hard drives from computers, laptops and other equipment. There are several different methods a hard drive destruction company might use to destroy data, including erasing or shredding hard drive devices.
The hard drive shredding process must be carried out by experts, using sophisticated shredders. If you want to imagine how it works, just think about how confidential waste is destroyed during paper shredding. The principle is the same. Our advanced machines destroy hard drives and other media storage devices into fragments, often as tiny as 6 millimetres! And just like with paper shredding, it would be near impossible to ever put the device back together again.
A certificate of destruction is the unique document you'll get after an erasure or shredding service to prove what happened to your asset. This document can be produced for each item destroyed, including its serial number. We'll give you access to these via your confidential and secure area of our online client portal, but you can download each certificate as a digital document for your records too. This will be important if you want to prove you're compliant with secure data destruction regulations.
Shredding will permanently destroy hard drives so that they can never be reused. It's an IT product destruction method only used on data-bearing media you don't need anymore. Data erasure is often chosen before shredding services are considered. This type of media destruction or hard drive destruction service involves overwriting confidential data on the device. It means that an asset can still be used, often after updating it with new software.
If a confidential waste document lands in the wrong hands, it can reveal a plethora of sensitive information which should never be read by unauthorised persons. The same goes for any data storage media and computer hard drives. You'll need to destroy them properly to ensure digital document data can't ever be recovered, even if you want to reuse the device.
We have one strict policy when it comes to the security of our recycling processes. In fact, we run one of the most secure computer recycling site facilities in the UK. 24/7 security and storage measures are in place, and all our staff go through a robust vetting process. Hard drive equipment and other assets are locked in secure containers at our site, and our tracked vehicles can come out to your home or business. As a computer recycling expert, we have years of experience putting the best security in place at our storage and destruction site.
Much like if you shred a paper document, the pieces will be pretty small. We accommodate different shredding widths when we shred devices, including 20mm data shredding, 6mm data shredding and CPNI approved data shredding. All materials go to recycling wherever possible.
So, is it only hard drives we shred? No! We shred and destroy lots of different IT assets as part of our shredding service (if they fit our machines). We shred mobiles, DVDs, data tapes, CDs, floppy discs and more.
