Something that many of us never consider as we go about our daily lives is how computers, hard drives, copiers, and other, similar tech products are disposed of when they have outlived their use.

 

Why should you care? For a number of reasons: First, because it’s illegal to discard many electronic devices in dumpsters and landfills. Second, because electronics waste often has a profound negative impact on the environment and human health. Third, and most important, because carelessly discarding computers, smartphones, and hard drives puts your most sensitive private data in danger.

 

Here at Newtech Recycling, we work hard every day to ensure that the hard drives and computers we receive from clients are disposed of properly, legally, and, most importantly, securely. For more than 25 years, Newtech Recycling has been the Tri-State Area’s most trusted computer disposal service.

 

We have the resources, experience, and expertise necessary to help businesses of all kinds and sizes protect their data and dispose of their e-waste responsibly. Our data destruction services comply with all state and federal laws, so you can rest assured that your information is always in good hands.

Why Secure Computer Recycling is Important

When you own a computer for many years, a lot of data gets stored on the hard drive. And we mean a lot! From your browsing history and email communications to financial account numbers, personal photographs, work files, and more, there’s a lot a person can learn about you from the information stored on your hard drive.

 

Many people don’t realize this, but even if you manually delete every last file on a hard drive before disposing of it, that information remains on the device. The problem is increased a thousandfold when you take into account the sheer number of computers, drives, and sensitive files that the average business office goes through annually.

 

Even popular data destruction methods like drilling holes in drives and submerging them in water are not foolproof. Fortunately, Newtech Recycling can do what these other hard drive data destruction methods can’t: provide safe and secure computer recycling solutions that fully and completely erase your data once and for all.

 

How do we do this? The first step in our state-of-the-art hard drive disposal service involves wiping all the files on your drives using a software purge. Although this itself isn’t enough to guarantee full data protection, it’s much more thorough than traditional deletion or reformatting.

The next step is to expose your drive to an EMP, or electromagnetic pulse. This disrupts the magnetic fields that organize the drive’s data, thereby destroying the information totally. Just to go one step further, Newtech Recycling’s data destruction experts then add one final level of security by shredding your drives. Additionally, as a value-added feature of our ITAD services, we can provide a serialized inventory of the drives being processed.

Newtech Makes Recycling Hard Drives Easier Than Ever

Newtech Recycling stands apart from other ITAD companies. Our goal is to provide you with the confidence of knowing that you and your organization are legally protected from the consequences of failing to dispose of your hard drives correctly.

 

The hard fact of the matter is this: as long as a hard drive is physically intact, there is still a chance of that information being accessed by hackers and data miners. Only physically destroying the hard drive ensures that your most precious data is 100% gone for good.

 

At least half of the businesses in the United States don’t use professional services to destroy hardware containing sensitive information. At Newtech Recycling, we understand how important it is to protect your personal or corporate data when recycling old devices. That’s why we offer exceptional hard drive shredding services to protect all of your confidential data when the time comes for corporate electronic recycling or replacement.

On-Site Hard Driving Shredding Services Are Available

Newtech Recycling’s data destruction facility is incredibly secure, with round-the-clock 24/7 surveillance and a meticulous Chain-of-Custody process ensuring that your data is never left vulnerable or exposed. However, we understand that for businesses and organizations with exceptional security concerns, it’s not easy letting hard drives out of your sight.

 

That’s why Newtech Recycling is proud to offer on-site hard-drive disposal services; instead of you bringing your hard drives to us, we’ll come directly to you. Your confidential data never even has to leave your building. We own a fleet of hard drive shredding vehicles and mobile shredders that can be brought right into your office.

 

Newtech Recycling’s Class D state-licensed mobile hard drive shredding and e-waste management facility is the best way to ensure your electronics are recycled properly, from pickup all the way to data destruction.

We Offer Secure Hard Drive Removal and Data Disposal

To destroy a hard drive securely, it must first be removed from its casing. Whether you have an office copier, laptop, server, or RAID backup system, this should always be the first step. This can be an easy task if you only have a few devices to dispose of. However, if you have a large number of computers in need of hard drive removal and disposal, allow us to help.

We provide a secure hard drive disposal facility with 24/7 surveillance and vetted staff. We also always operate to ISO 14001, ISO 45001, R2 certification, and state certification standards. Our process starts with removing the hard drives, and then purging them through an NSA, DOD, and MOD military-grade system, along with the previously mentioned EMP blast for extra safety. We finish the process by safely shredding the drives on NAID-compliant shredders.
