Destruction / Shredding - Our Services

This is when we physically destroy the drives with any stored data with an industrial disintegrator, the drives are cut and ground into small particles and then passed through a screen from 50mm down to 2mm in the extreme. The fragments are then re-cycled by a smelter absolutely destroying any trace of data.

We can provide a certificate of destruction to document the secure destruction of confidential data.

Should you require to witness the destruction we can arrange for your witness to be present or alternatively we can shred the drives at your premises.
