We offer solutions for various types of projects and multiple methods to destroy data. We provide solutions for magnetic tapes and SSD solid state disks.

Data destruction 100% guaranteed

E-Cycling has standardized all of its processes, guided by NIST 800-88 industry standards and various government regulations, to ensure that data destruction is secure and reliable. Our audited processes provide peace of mind, accountability and assurance that your company’s privacy and corporate reputation remain intact when handling your end-of-life technology assets.

Sensitive data cannot leave your company

In addition, we offer on-site hard drive destruction services. A truck equipped with a hard drive shredder provides this convenient service, which is very popular with large customers and data centers. Hard drive serial numbers are captured prior to destruction to facilitate final inventory reconciliation.

This service eliminates all risk associated with transporting the material. As data media continues to advance and capacities become larger, the need to protect sensitive data becomes more important. The media that can be destroyed are as follows.

    • Hard drives
    • Solid-state drives
    • Magnetic tapes
    • Magnetic tapes
    • CDs/DVDs
    • Packages
    • DVDs
    • Diskettes
    • CCTV/Video tapes
    • Portable storage device

Don’t take unnecessary risks. When security is absolutely paramount, you must ensure that your data is destroyed before it leaves your premises. E-Cycling offers a range of services for the destruction of sensitive business data at our customers’ facilities. Certified to government standards, our mobile shredding equipment can physically erase or destroy hardware so that all data is destroyed and unrecoverable.

Responsible Recycling

Any equipment or residual material resulting from destruction services will be recycled internally by E-Cycling.

Trust E-cycling to protect your sensitive data

E-Cycling uses standardized processes to ensure that all hard drives are audited and that no hard drive is skipped during the process. E-Cycling’s audited processes provide peace of mind, accountability and assurance that your company’s privacy and corporate reputation remain intact when managing your end-of-life IT assets.

Secure Chain of Custody

Our facilities have controlled and monitored access, ensuring maximum protection of your data assets prior to destruction. All assets are stored and protected until processing begins. Security measures implemented in our facilities include physical barriers, intruder alarm systems, CCTV surveillance, limited access areas and keyed locks, strict visitor controls, secure storage, strategic lighting and alarmed peripheral exits.

Witnessed Destruction

Some situations require customers to physically witness the destruction of electronic media. E-Cycling can accommodate this in-person destruction by hosting the customer at our processing facility. Alternatively, visibility into the process can be facilitated by providing a webcam link to witness the destruction remotely. We can also provide a video recording of the customer’s hard drives being destroyed. Our witnessed destruction is useful for our customers to verify the destruction of their media and, in some cases, the destruction of their hardware as part of our brand protection services.

Secure Data Destruction Methods

Effective Secure Data Destruction must meet or exceed R2 certification standards. When data destruction services are performed in accordance with these standards, businesses can rest assured that their information is securely destroyed and disks are rendered unreadable, wiped (meaning drives can be reused) or physically destroyed.

Data Wiping Software – Data Wiping

Looking for a way to securely erase electronic data, but preserve the physical hard drive? Our secure hard drive erasure service is perfect for companies that have off-lease equipment, or hard drives for reuse, redistribution or high remarketing value. This service includes:

  • Hard drive serial number capture
  • Our certified and bonded technician powers up each item and performs 1, 3, 5, or 7 DOD overwrite passes (depending on security requirements)
  • A certificate of destruction is provided to confirm that the data has been removed from the hard drives.
  • Up to 400 computers per day can be wiped

Physical destruction of hard drives in-house or on-site.

Hard drive destruction can also be carried out as part of a broader data destruction strategy. If there is a time lag between equipment pickup and the actual physical destruction of the equipment, an on-site hard drive shredder can be used as a security tactic to render the drives unusable in the meantime. This process protects the company and adds an additional layer of security and protection. We can also perform the service at our facility.

Hard Disk Drive Demagnetization – Degausser

Hard drive degaussing is the process of making a hard drive completely unreadable through the use of powerful electromagnets. Once degaussed, the hard drive becomes unusable and cannot be sold, reused or donated. For most companies, hard drive degaussing is part of a comprehensive plan to remove recorded data, such as patient files, financial information or other sensitive or confidential material. Hard drive degaussing is a cost-effective solution for destroying small quantities of hard drives or multimedia tapes.
