We are now also providing destruction services for SSD - Solid State Drives as they break or become obsolete.

We provide a secure collection, using our staff, in our own satellite tracked vehicles. Once the load enters our authorised treatment facility, it is scanned into our system. We destroy the hard drives and issue a certificate of destruction. This contains the individual serial numbers for each disk.

The destroyed hard drives are then recycled to recover the materials that they are made from.

Media Tape Destruction & Server Tape Destruction

Media tape destruction must be performed on any redundant or faulty backup media tapes and server tapes. Whilst tapes provide a good disaster recovery solution by storing company data, disposing of them incorrectly is a disaster waiting to happen.

As with hard drives, media tapes are usually magnetic storage devices, so our technicians have the option of either degaussing or shredding them to ensure that the media tape destruction and server tape destruction is thorough and that data is completely irretrievable.

Once the media tape destruction has taken place, a destruction certificate is produced and the tapes are then granulated for plastic recycling.
