When a tape, disc, or hard drive reaches the end of its life cycle, it shouldn’t be forgotten.
Your hard drive can contain thousands of sensitive files, which, if discovered by the wrong individual, might mean trouble for you down the road. Choosing to have your confidential records and electronic information destroyed by professionals means you don’t have to worry about this risk.
Cyber crime and information theft are on the rise and without these preventative measures in place, you could very well be targeted. Take appropriate precautions with simple, cost-effective and fast destruction services!
What do we destroy?
Erasing does not guarantee data removal.
Reformatting doesn’t delete data that is currently being stored on your device. In fact, even with reformatting in place, your hard drives will still have a record of the information they stored – data (often confidential) that can be retrieved by virtually anyone with simple computer skills. With that said, erasing a hard drive can create a false sense of security which can be alarming for business owners. The information may appear to be gone to the eye, but it is still accessible to those who are determined and skilled to find it.
Don’t be fooled by this attempt at data removal; keep your company, customers and clients, safe from falling victim to electronic data theft. Secure Shredding & Recycling will successfully destroy your hard drives with our hard drive destruction capabilities and make sure that your private information stays private for good.
The only way to really protect your information is to make the decision to have your hard drives or other electronic media physically destroyed.
Degaussing or “wiping” is not enough to ensure that hard drives are free from data; the only way to really protect your information is to make the decision to have your hard drives or other electronic media, physically destroyed. Our media destruction services follow a strict chain of custody, protecting your identity from start to finish. Whether you choose to have your electronic data destroyed on-site at your location or off-site at our facility, we will make sure the highest levels of professionalism and security are in place.
We use lockable disposal bins, GPS-tracked vehicles, and a high-security facility to offer you endless options and convenience. Furthermore, your information is tracked every step of the way so that your hard drives – and the valuable data that was on them — is securely and permanently destroyed. Following the destruction process, we will always provide our clients with a Certificate of Destruction at the end of the process and can even arrange for you to witness the destruction process for your own peace of mind.
Advantages of Hard Drive Destruction
Data is Permanently Destroyed and Unrecoverable
It’s important to understand that if the intent and skill are there, criminals can easily access data left on an “erased” hard drive, tape, or disc. Simply put, wiping a hard drive doesn’t guarantee that information has been deleted permanently at all.
The only method of disposal that ensures your data is 100% unrecoverable is through physical hard drive destruction, using specialized industrial equipment. It is this method and this method alone that guarantees all data is definitively and permanently removed.
Compliance with Critical Privacy Legislation
A data destruction company is made up of trained experts, specializing in what it takes to deliver quality and reliable services. Our team receives on-going industry training so that we remain up-to-date on any and all regulations pertaining to the destruction of hard drives and other electronic media.

Avoid Costly Fines

The good news is that this threat is entirely preventable when you hire a professional team to ensure the safe destruction of your sensitive information.
