Erasing Data Is Not Enough

Just because the information has been erased from a hard drive does not mean it is free from theft. That data can still be accessed by someone well-versed in information retrieval, which can lead to a major security breach. The only way to ensure your sensitive information cannot be accessed once the hard drive leaves your premises is to use secure hard drive destruction.

Recycling E-Waste And Complying With Legislation

As part of our environmental stewardship, PROSHRED® is committed to making sure each hard drive is delivered to metal and electronics recyclers for further processing. We only send electronic waste to certified recycling partners that comply with federal and state regulations. Therefore, you can rest easy knowing your information is disposed of safely.

What Environmental Benifits Does Hard Drive Shredding Offer?

When you choose PROSHRED®'s hard drive destruction service, you're not just safeguarding your company's sensitive data; you're also making a positive impact on the environment. Here's how:

  1. Minimized Landfill Impact: E-waste is a rapidly growing global concern, with a substantial portion of old electronics ending up in landfills. Our hard drive shredding service ensures responsible disposal, preventing these devices from adding to landfill waste.
  2. Preserving Resources: Electronics contain valuable materials such as copper, gold, and silver, which can be recycled. Through our hard drive shredding process, we enable the recovery and reuse of these resources, reducing the need for further material extraction.
  3. Managing Hazards: Inside electronic devices lie hazardous substances like lead, mercury, and cadmium, posing risks to the environment and human health if not handled properly. With PROSHRED®'s expertise in hard drive shredding, these materials are safely extracted and managed, mitigating potential environmental harm.

The best way to destroy a hard drive is to utilize a professional shredding service, like ours. Criminals can still retrieve data from hard drives if you haven't properly destroyed them. Don't take chances with your sensitive data; leave it to the experts at PROSHRED®
