Hard Drive Destruction

American Document Destruction (ADD) is proud to provide physical hard drive destruction service, regardless of whether the hard drive comes out of a desktop computer, laptop, multifunction printer, or any other device.

We can complete hard drive destruction either on-site at your location or at our secure facility in Sparks, Nevada. The decision is yours to decide based on cost and convenience to you. No matter where we shred your hard drives, they will be destroyed using state-of-the-art, industrial-grade machinery that is strictly dedicated to hard drive shredding and destruction.

As part of our hard drive destruction process, we record the serial numbers of all drives being destroyed and include a copy of this log on a Certificate of Destruction provided to you.

Off-Site Shredding

In our off-site shredding service, we collect the hard drives from your location, securely transport them to our off-site shredding facility, and shear them into small pieces so your confidential information cannot be recovered and remains secure. You then receive a Certificate of Destruction to confirm the destroyed devices' serial numbers and the time and location of their destruction.

How to Destroy a Hard Drive

Hard drive destruction methods often include shearing and crushing. Our facilities practice shearing which shreds the drives into several small pieces, rendering the data irrecoverable. Erasing a hard drive does not permanently remove the information. Physical hard drive destruction is the only way to ensure your private information can never be recovered. At ADD, we use the secure and effective shearing method to physically destroy each hard drive, making them completely unusable with no chance of recovery.

During physical hard drive destruction, the device will be sliced into small pieces completely destroying the drive platters, mechanisms, and electronic components.
