All hard drives are removed from computers without turning on the system. The hard drives are either wiped completely by White Canyon software or are destroyed by our Degausser. All hard drives are processed in the same way. If you prefer to have written documentation and Certification of Wipe/Destruction for your records, there is a $10.00 charge per hard drive for special processing. Many medical clients, tax preparers, attorneys and others prefer to have the written documentation.

We accept computers, monitors, television sets, accessories, servers, cell phones, cables and most electronics. An industry has grown over the past few years called Urban Mining. By reusing the commodities, there is a slowdown in mining new ore and the water needed to process it. Nothing goes to the landfill.  We are charging $0.15/per lbs. for recycling printers.  Unfortunately the request for printers has lessen, and we’re having to pay to recycle them properly.  We do apologize for the inconvenience.
