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:
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.
