Hard Drive and Media Destruction


Technology keeps evolving - getting faster, lighter or more powerful. And, electronics are a target for thieves looking to compromise privacy and steal personal or corporate information. So what do you do with your old PCs, flash drives or other electronic media once they're outdated and no longer needed? 

Many companies use software to erase the information from hard drives or stockpile them in a storage room but these practices can put you at risk of a security breach.
