Media Dagaussing

Degaussing is the process of reducing or eliminating an unwanted magnetic data stored on tape and disk media such as computer and laptop hard drives, diskettes, reels, cassettes and cartridge tapes.


Hard Drive Crushing

Hard Drive Crushing (punching) is becoming the most popular version of Hard Drive Disposal. This is a lower cost version of on-site shredding. Punching a hard drive either means punching a large hole, or bending the drive in half.


Hard Drive Shredding

Shredding a hard drive is a more intense and costlier version of punching. This involves heavy duty shredding machines the breaks the hard drive into small non-usable scrap metal pieces. Shredding is slowly fading away with a just as effective punching service.


Data Wiping

This is an excellent option for those who are interested in maintaining their assets for re-use. This service is typically done for very large orders of newer equipment that still has value to the customer.


Asset Dismantling

Manually dismantling assets is sometimes necessary when items needs to re-engineered. This is valuable for certain national companies with unique government contracts.


Precious Metal Refining

All hard drives that are destroyed ultimately end up as precious metals. Gold, Copper, Palladium and more is re-used in new hard drives and electronics. This means that higher cost shredding services are in many cases not necessary.
