Onsite Hard Drive Shredding FAQ

Understanding Onsite Hard Drive Shredding

What Is Hard Drive Shredding?

Hard drive shredding involves physically shredding the hard drive which is separated into multiple layers.

Each layer goes through a secure shredding process, ensuring the data is corrupted and cannot be retrieved, even with the most advanced restoration technology available today. Shredding a hard drive means that the data contained within it is completely removed and is safe to dispose of, even if it had previously contained sensitive information.

This prevents unwanted access that may result in data breaches or sensitive data leakage, ensuring your business is absolved of liability, and is compliant with data handling regulations and restrictions.

How Much Does Hard Drive Shredding Cost?

The cost of hard drive shredding can vary greatly depending on the type of drive, the basic service costs of the company, and the level of data that the asset contains. The cost may also vary depending on the number of hard drives you need shredded, as quantity discounts may be considered.

When choosing onsite hard drive shredding services with EWASTE+, you can expect to pay anywhere from $5 to $15 per hard drive depending on the data destruction needs of the job. Our team brings a mobile shredding unit to your place of business and provides all services onsite, allowing you or your employees the opportunity to manually verify data destruction. After shredding, we’ll also provide you with documentation and a destruction certificate to provide in case your sector is legally obligated to provide proof of destruction.

Should You Destroy a Hard Drive Before Recycling?

It’s essential to ensure that all data is rendered irretrievable before recycling a hard drive. While physically destroying the hard drive is one effective method, sanitization offers a more cost-effective and environmentally sustainable alternative. At EWASTE+, we provide a comprehensive sanitization process that aligns with both NAID and NIST 800-88 guidelines, ensuring data is securely erased without physically destroying the drive. This not only helps in reducing waste but also supports your company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy. Regardless of the method chosen, it’s crucial that the data destruction process is thorough, with a clear paper trail to verify that your business has complied with all legal and regulatory requirements before recycling or disposing of the assets.
