IT-recycling has 20 years of experience in wiping hard drives with software. The big advantage is that the hard drive can be used again afterwards. If we buy computers for resale, we usually wipe the hard drives instead of destroying them in the hard drive shredder. Wiping the hard drives is included in the purchase price.

The best hard drive wiping service in the Netherlands: IT-recycling’s hard drive sanitizer.
We usually use our hard drive sanitizer when wiping with software, a device which can be simultaneously connected to a large number of hard drives. Hard drives are then overwritten by the device with random binary codes. A sanitizer therefore works differently from wipe software. Normally, a hard drive wipe with a sanitizer is also much more thorough and faster than using software alone. You can also wipe a hard drive yourself, for example with the free DBAN program. We can rely on many years of experience and our well-equipped workshop to wipe practically any hard drive. Well… we can wipe almost any hard drive that isn’t too old and still worth the investment. In principle, hard drives can also be wiped on location, but this rarely happens. Customers who want to destroy data on location generally prefer our mobile hard drive shredder. It’s much faster and more convenient.
We can wipe, test and return hard drives
If you have a number of hard drives with sensitive data and you want to wipe them, we’ll gladly take on the task. IT-recycling collects the hard drives from you and places them in sealed containers, then they are wiped here in Uden with the hard drive sanitizer. The hard drives are then packed and returned. You’ll receive a registration and a Certificate of Data Destruction from us for the hard drive wipe. This whole process of collection/wiping/return of hard drives takes about a week. If you have hard drives with data and you want to use them again: click here to contact us.
If it is not possible to wipe hard drives, they are sent to the shredder.
If for some reason a wipe doesn’t work, or is aborted because our hard drive sanitizer determines that the hard drive is not working properly, we make a note in the report. The hard drive is then sent into our workshop for destruction in the static hard drive shredder.
