Security First! Crushing Drives One by One
With a name like Computer Crusher you better know how to crush hard drives! Onsite physical hard drive destruction is what we have specialized in now for 10 years. Computer Crusher Recycling actually started out as a hard drive destruction company in 2006. As the hard drives piled up so did the need to responsibly recycle electronics. Our customers wanted to know how to dispose of their computer electronics after their hard drives were destroyed, so we started offering our recycling services in addition to our hard drive destruction services.
Now 10 years later we are a C2 Certified electronics company. We dismantle electronics that have reached their end of life by hand, with a real person ensuring that everything is securely recycled each step of the way. Since our humble beginnings we have always taken the stance that security should come first before recycling computer electronics. One of the ways we do this is by crushing hard drives right before your eyes! We've always felt this was a necessary benefit for our customers when everyone hears so much about data breaches and ID theft. You deserve the right to confidently know that your data is destroyed when you recycle your electronics.
Over the years we have noticed that very few computer recycling companies offer onsite PHYSICAL destruction. Most will promise to wipe or erase them at a later time. When we leave our customer's parking lot the data destruction issue is finished. I have always assumed the reason why computer recycling companies do not offer onsite destruction is because it is too difficult to provide. To solve this issue, we designed and built our own hard drive crushing machines. These platter crushing machines are easily transported, and now equipped in all of our vehicles. With this equipment we're able to destroy anything from two hard drives for a doctor's office to 1600+ drives for a major IT Department. You should insist that your data is properly destroyed before having someone dispose of your electronics. Call us first and don't take a chance!
