Hard Drive Destruction

Physical Hard Drive Destruction

When you have old electronics in need of disposal, be sure you do not simply throw it into the garbage. Your normal hard drive is a veritable treasure chest of information that a dedicated individual may be able to recover and use against you. Many people don’t realize that degaussing or deleting data does not truly destroy it from a hard drive. The right software, and some time, is enough to recover data that can be very damaging to you or your business. The only way to be sure is with proper and complete physical destruction of your electronic storage devices.

The best way to achieve complete destruction is by using a state-of-the-art grinder that is designed specifically for hard drive destruction. Some grinders may not destroy the components thoroughly enough to prevent data recovery. The BDRS state-of-the-art grinder is specifically designed to shred media so that no data can ever be reconstructed or retrieved. That means physically grinding the media and disposing of the minute particles that remain. Our grinding process produces particles from less than ¼” to 2″ in diameter. The grinder is housed in a secure shredding facility. BDRS employees provide pickup and transportation using company owned trucks which allow the entire process to comply with AAA NAID certified standards. Get proper hard drive destruction to ensure your data is protected from identity theft.

After complete destruction has been accomplished , the ground material will be sent away for processing. After being broken down to their base materials they will be sent back to manufacturers as raw materials to be remade into new products. In this way BDRS ensures nothing is wasted. Everything is recycled.
