Why do you need Hard drive destruction?

As the world becomes more and more digital, it’s important to think about how we dispose of our old electronics. Vast amounts of digital information are often disposed of insecurely in when considering computer equipment recycling. Sensitive data can be extracted from hard drives that haven’t been properly erased. That’s where our hard drive destruction service comes in.

Our hard drive destruction service will ensure that your data is irrecoverably destroyed, which means physical destruction of the drive using our state-of-the-art data shredding equipment. This gives you peace of mind that your confidential information won’t end up in the wrong hands.

All our hard drive and media destruction services offer a certificate of destruction and are accredited to ISO27001 and BS EN15713. Our uniformed data destruction operatives drive GPS-tracked vehicles, to ensure that your data shredding service is fully-traceable from collection to destruction.

For those with larger volumes of hard drives and data tapes to destroy, we also offer an onsite shredding solution – which can be especially convenient when you have a large requirement for the disposal of confidential waste.

Shredding companies can often vary in quality, compliance and costs. Choosing a reputable hard drive destruction service is an important step in protecting your company’s confidential data. With Chaffinch Document, you can be sure that your data is in capable hands.

Our customers use us again and again for the disposal of confidential waste, so when looking for shredding companies near me, Chaffinch Document is the industry-leading choice for hard drive destruction.
