Properly destroy electronics to protect access to sensitive information
Recycle Electronics to ensure compliance with federal regulations.
A computer's hard drive (“HDD”) or solid state drive (“SSD”) can contain more sensitive information than a truck-load of file boxes. When you retire your computers, laptops, printers, copiers, cell phones (with storage chips, HDD’s or SSD’s) you must make certain the data is properly destroyed. Shredding of HDD’s, NSA Acceptable Standard hole punching, or disintegration of SSD’s and chip based storage are the only certain ways to guarantee secure disposal.

What should you Destroy?
In addition, you need to dispose of all computer electronics properly or you risk EPA and state violations for hazardous waste.
After any/all data storage drives/chips have been removed and destroyed, we recycle 1OO% of your electronic components, such as servers, PCs, monitors, keyboards, mice, copiers and printers. They are NEVER placed in a Land-Fill!
