Hard Drive Shredding Service

If you’re looking for a reputable hard drive shredding service, contact Gigacycle today. We’re accredited by ADISA, leading the way in the industry with our hard drive destruction expertise. Book a computer recycling or hard drive collection online now.



    How much is the cost of shredding hard drives?

    If you have a hard drive to shred, you can keep costs to a minimum by using the services of a specialist like Gigacycle. When you book shredding services, we'll let you know what's included, including free collections across the country. As IT asset disposal specialists, we'll handle all your IT confidential waste equipment as securely as possible.

    What's the best way to destroy a hard drive?

    When you consider a hard drive destruction service, there are several options for you to consider. The best ways to destroy it are to shred it, erase it or deem it unusable through degaussing, which is where the magnetic field of media devices is permanently altered.

    Can old hard drives be recycled?

    Yes! Much like paper shredding, all the confidential waste produced when you shred a hard drive can be recycled in some form. At Gigacycle, we aim to achieve eco-friendly solutions for every asset, even with our shredding services. Once a hard drive has been through the data destruction process, its parts can be reused elsewhere. Or if you choose to erase the confidential information on the device, it could have a system update. From here, the hard drive can be redeployed within your business or sold.

    Will I get a certificate of destruction?

    Yes! For all our media destruction and shredding services, you'll receive a secure destruction document for every asset destroyed.

    Do you offer an on and off-site shredding service?

    Yes. We offer both on and off-site shredding, providing flexible solutions whatever your business needs. It means that we can pick up hard drives in our secure vehicles to take back to our facility, where shredding and destruction services take place. Or if your data privacy policy terms and conditions state that the data must be destroyed or shred before any assets leave your site, let us perform our services at your premises, thanks to our mobile shredding machines.

    What makes you hard drive destruction experts?

    Our hard drive shredding service is just one of the solutions we provide, leading the way in media destruction expertise.

    IT asset management
