Hard Drive Destruction

Our team offers a number of secure methods for destroying hard drives, computers, and similar devices. We cater our services to meet the privacy specifications for your industry.

On arrival, eCyclers performs a basic evaluation and gathers your selected IT assets. When on-site data destruction is requested, our tech removes the data storage component if needed and renders it inoperable before exiting your facility or home. Our tech will then enter all assets into an electronic database, which is made available to you via email prior to his or her departure. All serial codes and barcodes are included in this email, and also on the Certificate of Destruction you receive. These certificates are generated during destruction and are kept on file by eCyclers.


We conduct DoD-compliant data erasure procedures to ensure that all hard drives are completely overwritten without any retrievable information left. Permanent data erasure goes beyond basic file deletion.


Magnetic degaussing is a method that permanently removes data from devices using a powerful magnetic field. This method is particularly effective for smaller quantities of electronics.

Physical Destruction

This method is very secure and cost effective. Devices are shredded into 1/2″ pieces or smaller. Asset tags are destroyed, but can be removed if requested. We also provide low level formatting and/or drilling if necessary.

Devices We Destroy:

  • Hard Drives
  • Tapes
  • Flash Drives
  • Cell Phones
  • CDs or DVDs
