Data Destruction

We provide both on-site and off-site data destruction services before recycling your e-waste, to ensure your stored information remains confidential and secure.

The what’s and why’s of Data Destruction

Data destruction is the process of destroying data stored on tapes, hard disks and other forms of electronic media so that it is completely unreadable and cannot be accessed or used for unauthorized purposes. In today’s times, the world runs on data, and access to confidential information can make or break a business. Thus, it is imperative to safeguard, back-up and protect one’s files from data loss and theft. This is especially true in case of recycling your computing equipment. Businesses often believe that formatting their devices is enough to protect their privacy, overlooking the simple fact that data can be recovered at any time. We, at Hulladek Recycling, inform, empower and protect our clients from committing such errors, by ensuring that once the machines are collected by us, we destroy all data before beginning the recycling process.

Our data destruction service is the bakcbone of our promise of security, privacy and confidentiality to our clients when they recycle their e-waste with us. We provide both on-site and off-site destruction facilities, befitting your company and industry norms. We understand that significant company data is often stored in HDD devices, and losing them to a third party can result in loss of one’s competitive edge. Therefore, to eliminate this potentiality of leak, we provide data wiping facility, where the e-waste to be recycled is destroyed beyond the point of recovery.

The Hulladek Way: How we do it

At Hulladek Recycling, we follow a simple, but effective three-step process for successful and secure data destruction.


STEP 1: REMOVE IT


First, the hard drive is physically removed from the system. The method is quick and cost-efficient, for the entire removal is executed using only a screwdriver.


STEP 2: DATA DESTRUCTION

To ensure that access to old data is completely denied and wiped out, the old hard drives are physically, completely destroyed.


STEP 3: DRILL IT
At this juncture, a metal drill bit is penetrated into the device completely, from one side to another, several times. Two important areas of focus in this activity are the platters and the control board, where all the storing and recovery transmission of commands take place. We take safety of our team members very seriously, and ensure that our drilling executives perform their data destruction services wearing protective gear – comprising of safety goggles, gloves and a dust mask for their mouth and nose.
