Decommission and Disposal
Data wiping, degaussing, hard-drive shredding, and IT peripheral recycling services will keep you compliant with federal data security laws.
Programs to properly dispose of electronic equipment and computers
Most know that IT recycling is important because many components contain harmful chemicals. Computer monitors for example, contain chemicals like lead, cadmium, and mercury. When these chemicals are released into the air and water they have been linked to serious respiratory and neuropsychological disorders.
But, did you know that recycling your IT and electronic assets is a federal requirement? As end users, we are also responsible for safe disposal of used computer equipment to be compliant with federal data security laws.
Degaussing makes media totally unusable and physically destroys the computer drive. The data on your drive is exposed to alternating magnetic fields that overwrite your original data with random patterns. By changing the magnetic field on the tape or hard drive using a degausser, the information stored on it can effectively be destroyed. Degaussing hard drive is a complete, quick, silent and easy process. Hard drive components can be fully recycled once degaussed.
