And other digital media, such as tapes, mobile phones, USB sticks etc.
You bring your hard disk drives (or other digital media) to us for them to be shredded while you watch.
To save money, you can of course simply bring your written-off hard disk drives (or other digital media) to us in Uden, the Netherlands, where we can shred them. This service is always available on Fridays, although we appreciate your contacting us beforehand so that we can have your tea or coffee ready.
You hand over your hard disk drives to us, and we count them together. The numbers are then listed.
We then register the serial number of each hard disk drive. You will then receive a signed list of these numbers.
The last step is an invitation to come along to our mobile hard disk drive shredder and experience the shredding.
The shredding does not take long, just a few seconds per drive.
The hard disk drives are ground down into particles about 9 mm big in two stages.
After all the hard disk drives have been shredded, we will ask you for another signature for the declaration covering liability for data breaches, and we will give you a sample of your shredded hard disk drives.
