Hard Drive Destruction

To provide the best available absolute destruction service we have combine two destruction technologies in one seamless operation.  Firstly the magnetic protection is removed from the drive.  Then the storage media is passed unprotected through a strong magnetic field.  The disks are then fed through to a shredder which cuts them in to tiny pieces no bigger than 5mm.

100% of the drive material is recovered and recycled.  We even recycle the Rare Earth magnets which drive the hard drive heads.

Magnetic Tape Destruction

Magnetic tapes are usually used to store large amounts of data for archiving and back up purposes.  Tapes come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.  Data tapes are not as easy to securely destroy as you might think.  At recycling centres you quite often see tapes floating around in the wind.

Absolute Data Destruction first erase the tape using a high powered magnetic field known as degaussing.  This disrupts the way the data is stored on the tape. We then place the tapes in security containers and incinerate them.  We use certified energy from waste sites and we carry the containers there ourselves, witness the destruction and record video evidence.

Secure Erasure for Reuse or Resale

Where devices are required for reuse Absolute Data Destruction uses certified erasure tools overwrite your unwanted data.  This enables the device to be reused or resold.  Each device is issued with a certificate which details the device details and the method used for destroying the data.
