Almost untraceable, hidden pieces of data exist, and they exist even as companies dispose of old or outdated data storage devices their IT departments wiped clean. But just like washing a window with cleaner, sometimes a smudge or a smear is left behind. That trace amount can be the difference of millions of dollars, if it’s the right tidbit of data.
Citishred was the first shredding company in Missouri to provide on-site Hard Drive Destruction by pulverizing the Hard Drive.The Citishred team has specialized expertise in hard drive destruction, computer disposal and electronic media destruction. We are certified for on-site mobile shredding of hard drives, as well as secure offsite hard drive destruction. First, we conduct a complete inventory, providing customers with a detailed list of all media set for destruction. During shredding, all electronic media and hard-drives can be rendered legally indecipherable if you ask for this process. Once the material is destroyed, we follow strict Green disposal guidelines to keep the material out of area landfills. Data tapes, for example, are incinerated for waste-to-energy and hard drives are recycled at a licensed e-waste facility.
For our clients, having drives, back-up tapes, floppies, optical disks and any electronic storage media become part of their overall destruction program, either by regular scheduled service or one-time projects is easy as 1,2,3. Or should we say 00110001 00110010 00110011.
