Data Security, Hard Drive Destruction

Security and privacy of data are extremely important when recycling unwanted PCs. Regardless of whether a PC is functional or not, it has a hard drive full of data. For businesses, this includes sensitive information about customers or clients, as well as other business information. PCs in your home contain sensitive data like financial information, passwords, and personal information. When donating or recycling computers, it’s important that all sensitive data is removed completely. ReWorx Recycling can handle all data destruction requirements.

  • Maintain compliance in your company.  The methods we use for data destruction are compliant with HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Sarbanes-Oxley Act, The Patriot Act, Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act, and others.
  • Through our data destruction methods, all media are rendered “unusable and/or inaccessible”
  • Security services and patrols are provided by a private company.
  • Until the hard drives are destroyed or wiped, all media stored at ReWorx Recycling Secure Facility is constantly monitored under video surveillance.

Secure Data Destruction

Remarketing potential of electronic equipment is assessed according to contractual agreements. In order to remarket reusable equipment, proprietary information shall be removed according to NIST SP 800-88 Guidelines for Media Sanitization, as well as contractual obligations. Failure to meet reuse standards, outdated or unrecyclable equipment will be destroyed by de-manufacturing or physical destruction. You should also wipe or reset any phones, PDAs, tablets, enterprise routers, switches, and VPN firewalls before recycling them.

Secure Hard Drive Wipe (Free)

Each item processed by Reworx Recyling is thoroughly inspected and protected by removing Asset Tags, Stickers, and Identifying marks (Sanitization). Every drive is wiped free of charge during this initial inspection stage via the Department of Defense compliant erasure program.

On all hard drives picked up or dropped off at our warehouse, we offer free data sanitization using DoD 5220.22-M 3 Pass methods which will prevent all software-based file recovery methods.


In accordance with NIST SP 800-88 Guidelines for Media Sanitization, all old or non-functional hard drives and storage devices will be destroyed or shredded at no charge to you.


A “Certificate of Recycling & Data Destruction” can be provided to you which will state if any drives that were included in the pickup or drop off of equipment have been destroyed. Please include this in your online pickup request. For a nominal fee, we can also scan and record all serial numbers in a spreadsheet.


In order to protect your privacy, we wipe all hard drives without accessing any data on them.


We can create a detailed inventory list of the equipment picked up. For compliance purposes, this report will provide the manufacturer, model, serial number, and asset tag number(s) for each item.


By default, all failed or obsolete drives will be shredded at no cost to you.
