Hard Drive Destruction
Today, there is an abundance of technology, it can be easy to neglect the proper disposal of your old hard drives and other media devices. However, some of your most valuable corporate or client data is stored inside these devices.

We work hard to ensure no material is ever sent to landfill where it would be harmful to the environment. Once destroyed, hard drives are recycled in the form of extracting the precious metals. Rest assured, your data and hard drives will be completely destroyed and the resulting material recycled or disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way.
Upon request, we can provide you with a list of serial numbers and a certified Certificate of Destruction showing that each hard drive (listed by serial number) has been properly destroyed and disposed of in a manner that meets regulatory standards.
Destruction: It’s the Law
It’s important to remember that in accordance with HIPAA, GLB, and other regulations that affect many industries, personal information must be completely destroyed. This means that simply erasing a hard drive is not considered an acceptable way to protect your patients’, customers’, or employees’ personal information.
Instead, the only way to actually carry out your due diligence is to shred the hard drives in the most effective way possible: using our state-of-the-art technology.
Don’t gamble with your most valuable asset: information. Instead, minimize risk by completely destroying your hard drives. Trusting The Shredeasy with your hard drive disposal will give you peace of mind knowing that crucial data is destroyed, and you’ll even have a Certificate of Destruction to keep for your records.
