Hard Drive Destruction Process

Our hard drive data destruction services guarantee compliance with regulations, comprehensive data security and a transparent destruction process.

  • We put your hard drives through our NIST SP 800-88 compliant data destruction software, our 7-Pass hard drive wiping device, our shredder or our magnetic degausser to thoroughly sanitize, destroy and/or wipe your data.
  • We also have a high PSI conical punch that exerts 12,000lbs of force that allows us to physically destroy hard drives at your site.
  • We’ll send you a Certificate of Destruction as proof that your data has been properly destroyed.
  • When hard drives are physically destroyed the remaining materials will be broken down into their component parts and recycled locally.

What are Your Methods for Hard Drive Data Destruction?

At DTG Recycle, we use 4 primary methods for hard drive data destruction.

  1. Data ErasureOur industrial-strength hard drive sanitation software complies with NIST 800-88. We also use an Enhanced Secure Erase function to ensure secure data sanitation of SSD, making it impossible to recover data, even through forensic techniques.
  2. Degaussing – By generating a powerful electromagnetic field, this technique destroys all magnetically recorded data, providing a reliable method for hard drive destruction.
  3. Stake Punching – Through physical destruction, this process crushes and renders media platters and storage devices unreadable.
  4. Shredding – Items are shredded, and the remaining components are separated and recycled into their original commodities.
