Hard drive serial number scanning

 

Hard Drive Destruction:

Hard drive memory platters are crushed by NAID certification standards in our HD Hammer. Destroyed, unreadable hard drives are shipped to a U.S. EPA certified facility for recycling. A serial number Certificate of Destruction is retained by you and SecurShred. Other electronic media including backup tapes, micro media, and cassettes are destroyed with shredding equipment at our facility.

 

Our HD Hammer assures that your hard drive will be completely destroyed. Unlike other methods such as drilling, hammering, or degaussing our HD Hammer assures that your information is permanently destroyed.

 

Paper, Electronics & Micromedia, Plastic, etc:

Our shredding equipment has powerful blades that shred material into unrecognizable bits. Files and information are no longer recognizable and cannot be reconstructed as they mix with thousands of pounds of paper from other orders. The paper is bailed in a NAID certified plant and is securely shipped to a paper mill for recycling. All material is kept secure until it is properly recycled back into paper and other products.

 

Hard drive raw materials

What happens to the materials after they are destroyed?

Ship-n-Destroy uses End-of-life recyclers that comply with all State and Federal regulations and will recycle your hardware into its raw materials for reuse. Our recyclers are located in the U.S. and use a "cradle to grave" tracking system. This assures that the electronic waste does not end up in the hands of other companies, landfills or illegally exported to other nations.

 

All paper is send to a plant in where it is recycled back into tissue paper.
