Professional Certified Data Destruction and Sanitization is included when recycling any personal identifying media bearing devices received by Electronics Recycling of Minnesota.
Our expert Data Destruction technicians start by removing Hard Disk Drives (HDD), Solid State Drives (SSD), Flash Media (Memory Cards), Floppy Disks or Magnetic Tape Drives, and Enterprise Storage devices, to evaluate their value and reuse potential.
End-of-life media storage and hard-drives with sensitive info, are completely destroyed on-site in our warehouse (not transferred to a downstream resource, like many R2 Certified recyclers), in our 150HDD-SSD Drive Shredder. This method physically destroys the media storage device, shattering the exterior structure, leaving behind irrecoverable bits measuring no larger than ⅛ of an inch. We provide a mobile shredding service that can be performed at your business location or residence, anywhere in Minneapolis or St. Paul.
Electronics Recycling of MN is not dependent on downstream third-parties for data destruction. Your data never leaves our facility. Checkout our full list of Items Accepted for Recycling.
SECURE DATA WIPING
Before any media storage device is sold or transferred, our expert technicians use a Secure Drive Wiping Software (Bitraser) to generate a digitally signed, comprehensive report of erasure, including in-depth details of the overwriting process, which serves as a tamper proof audit trail for regulatory compliance. The erasure report includes a detailed hardware profile of the erased device and S.M.A.R.T information of the wiped storage drive.
