Hard Drive Shredding & Hard Drive Destruction in DC, Silver Spring, Arlington, Reston & Beyond

Shred Ace is AAA Certified by the National Association for Information Destruction for mobile on-site hard drive shredding, which is the highest standard of security in our industry — it is our commitment to information security that helps earn us this prestigious certification. Here are a list of questions we regularly receive regarding our DC hard drive disposal services:

Do you shred the hard drives right in front of me at my location? Yes. Our shredding trucks come to your facility and your hard drive shredding occurs right there on the spot. You can watch the shredding as it happens, and just for good measure, we can open the back of the truck and you can see the pile of small metal shards for yourself.

Can you provide a list of serial numbers for the hard drives that are destroyed? Yes, we can scan each hard drive’s bar code and provide you with a list of the units destroyed.

What happens to the material after the hard drives have been shredded? Shred Ace works with local recycling facilities throughout the DC area to make sure that all electronic waste is recycled properly.

Do you shred electronic media other than hard drives? Yes, you name it, we shred it. Examples of other media that often requires on-site destruction include:

  • Hard drives
  • Solid State Drives (SSDs)
  • DLT tapes
  • Floppy discs
  • CDs
  • Backup tapes
  • DVDs
  • Security badges
  • Apparel
  • And more

We also offer off-site hard drive destruction, whereby we pick up your hard drives in a secure vehicle and transport them back to our facility, to be securely destroyed. Once the hard drive disposal is completed, we issue a Certificate of Destruction just as we do with on-site hard drive shredding.

    Another top notch experience with Shred Ace. Excellent, well coordinated service and very responsive.
  • Avatar Kate Barbee ★★★★★ 8 years ago
    Everything about working with the Shred Ace team has been easy! I work for a local business and was tasked with finding a … More company to handle our shredding needs. From the first call to them a few years ago through our pick-up last week, their team has been easy to work with, helpful, and patient with our company needs. I can't recommend them highly enough.
  • Avatar Robert Leonard ★★★★★ 8 years ago
    We're a small/medium sized law firm so our shredding needs vary depending on case load. Shred Ace has been a great company … More to work with and has great customer service. In the case that our bin gets full before next shredding, I've never had a problem getting someone to stop by within a reasonable amount of time to empty out for us. Shred Ace has been very compatible to our varying shredding needs and working with them on quote for other projects has been a breeze.
