Why So Important about Hard Drive Recycling?



Proper hard drive recycling is vitally important to maintaining data privacy from devices. In today’s digital age, our entire lives are stored on our devices, including e-mails, financial data, personal information, medical information, photos and much more. Too often, hard drive disposal just means a cursory deletion of sensitive information or dumping the PC in the trash, leaving sensitive personal data accessible to savvy cyber criminals. When it’s time to get rid of your old computers, it’s critically important that proper hard drive disposal and hard drive recycling protocols be meticulously followed.

Leave your hard drive recycling to UWI

Our professional hard drive data erasure and physical destroyed services take place in our e-recycling facility and follow all legislative protocols to protect our customers’ sensitive data. Our superior standards of secure hard drive data destruction are always in compliance with the requirements set forth by HIPAA or FACT, and guidelines from organizations such as NIST, and DoD, or data destruction through hard drive shredding. We destroy hard drives such that they cannot be restored and the data cannot be retrieved.

We’re good environmental stewards

E-waste is a huge and growing problem. Computers contain harmful toxins that must be disposed of properly on order to prevent environmental damage. At UWI, after we destroy a hard drive, we always recycle responsibly. Our careful hard drive recycling practices provide customers with peace of mind knowing that they are not contributing to the e-waste epidemic and the data on their device is no longer accessible.
