Computer Hard Drive Destruction
Very often when renewing IT equipment, a company can be left with the problem of disposing of the old data storage such as hard drives in a secure way in order to comply with the Data Protection Act.
Formatting computer hard drives isn’t always enough, in order to avoid the risk of data remanence, any end of life digital storage media should be destroyed.
Yield UK are able to shred computer hard drives and then recover the materials for recycling. Not only will this help you to comply fully with Data Protection legislation but will also help to divert end of life IT equipment from landfill.
Examples Of Specialist Shredding?
It’s not just computer hard drives and data storage that we shred. We are able to shred almost anything that shouldn’t end up in the public domain. Some of the more common items that we’ve shredded are as follows:
End of life uniforms for emergency services
Knives and daggers collected during a Police amnesty
Items used as evidence during court trials
ID cards and badges
Most of what we shred can be recycled with only a small percentage sent to landfill. A full audit trail is provided to prove destruction.
