On-Site Hard Drive Destruction

E-Waste Security’s hard drive destruction service is the most secure and compliant in the industry.  To begin with, we physically destroy hard drives.  As a result, your hard drives can no longer be used nor can data ever be recovered.  The threat of information exposure and data breach is effectively controlled.

We destroy the hard drive on-site so you can witness and verify that data has been destroyed. This witnessed process ensures an unbroken chain-of-custody that will satisfy your CISO and SOC auditor.

Documentation for your Records

Our Certificate of Destruction goes beyond auditors’ requirements and expectations.  We offer full NIST 800-88 reporting which includes the drives make, model, type, serial number and the parent machine.  We believe in secure data destruction through organized processes and detailed documentation.

Our Data and Digital Media Destruction Process

We are not your typical e-waste recycling company.  We’re a certified by NAID which means you can trust our best-in-class hard drive and digital media destruction service.  Our hard drive destruction process follows stringent policies and procedures to mitigate all threats to information security.  Wondering how it is done?  Check out our high-level overview of our data destruction process.


Step #1 - Secure Area

We’ll gather all your hard drives in one central and secure location, such as your office or data center. This is where we’ll record the serial numbers and pack the drives to transport them to our mobile destruction unit.  You will accompany us during the recording and destruction process.


Step #2 - Recording

We’re all about the documentation — and we’re good at it, too. For clients complying with NIST, we’ll scan and record the serial number, make, model, and other crucial details of each hard drive. We’ll use this information to generate a comprehensive of Destruction for your records.


Step #3 - Physical Destruction

Our destruction process is efficient—our shredding equipment can destroy over 1,300 hard drives per hour. This fast throughput allows you to witness the entire process then quickly get back to your other productive activities.


Step #4 - Documentation

Lastly, we’ll produce the necessary documentation needed to formally state that your hard drives were properly destroyed. The Certificate of Destruction will detail the employee from your business that witnessed the process. Your CISO or auditor— will have no doubt that data has been securely and safely destroyed.
