If your hard drive disposal process includes erasing, reformatting, wiping or degaussing old hard drives, you and your customers are still vulnerable. In fact, as long as the drives are physically intact, private information can still be retrieved.

We can securely shred hard drives and all types of media. We can come to your premises and destroy your drives as you witness the destruction or we can collect them and shred them at our own state-of-the-art site.
