Why Should You Permanently Destroy Old Hard Drives?

Hard drives are the heart of your organization– storing millions of pages of personal and sensitive information regarding clients, patients, and employees. Their rich content is precisely why they are considered highly valuable assets for information thieves.

When replacing computer hardware, some companies will offer to sanitize your old hard drives and later resell them. However, as long as the device is intact, data may still be recoverable. At TITAN, we recommend that you permanently destroy your hard drives. Our process uses industrial shredders explicitly designed for hard drives and other media destruction such as:

  • Tapes/CD’s and DVD’s
  • iPads
  • USB Drives
  • Cell Phones
  • Tablets


If financial and personally identifiable information (PII) is on an unwanted hard drive, you must follow applicable privacy laws protecting your business, employees, and clients. HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and FACTA require that information is securely destroyed so no one else can access it.

Recycling & The Environment

E-waste is a severe environmental problem in the U.S. and throughout the world. At TITAN, once your hard drives are destroyed, they are delivered to a refining company to extract precious metals such as copper, aluminum, and steel. The recovered metals are then used in new electronics, leaving a significantly smaller carbon footprint.

Easy & Convenient

On-Site Hard Drive Destruction

We will come to your location, take your hard drives, and scan their serial numbers for your records. The hard drives are then shredded in our custom shred truck. We then provide you with an electronic Certificate of Destruction and an emailed report with the serial numbers.

Off-Site Hard Drive Destruction

We can pick up your hard drives at your location and place them in a locked, secure container. Our facility scans and records their serial numbers for your records. You’ll get an electronic Certificate of Destruction in an email with a list of hard drives and their serial numbers.
