100% Guaranteed Data Destruction

Every company has to update their computers on occasion. Most either recycle or donate their old computers, but many are totally overlooking the grave threat to their sensitive data by not handling the hard drives properly before doing so. In a survey of 350 companies who had recycled or donated their old computers, only 23% had destroyed the data from those hard drives first. Algonquin Electronics Recycling wants to make that number 100%.

Letting a computer or device out of your control with the hard drive intact is equivalent to sending a ticking time bomb out into the world waiting to explode and ruin your business. One data breach and you're on the hook for employee and client lawsuits, not to mention the loss of public trust when the news hits the media ... and it will. Every angry potential litigant will be tweeting about it. After that it's just a matter of time before 60 Minutes knocks on your door with a camera crew in tow. All this can be avoided if you just hire Algonquin Electronics Recycling when it's time to dispose of old electronic devices.

Algonquin Electronics Recycling shreds hard drives to assure the obliteration of the sensitive information housed inside. We have shredding machines that will make it so that all the king's horses and all the king's men can't put those hard drives back together again.

Algonquin Electronics Recycling can come to your site with self-contained trucks that have a generator and shredding machines so you can supervise as we shred. Or if you prefer, Algonquin Electronics Recycling can take them back to our facility for destruction. The entire time they are in our custody the hard drives will be under lock and key and monitored by closed circuit cameras until the shredding process is complete. We scan each and every hard drive for model and serial number, and then present you with a certificate of destruction for your records.

"Zero Landfill" Policy

Algonquin Electronics Recycling takes its role as a good steward of the planet very seriously and always practices sustainable electronics recycling. After shredding the hard drives we then strip the electronics down to their components. To be as thorough as possible we hand disassemble each and every device. Some places shred the entire device, but that releases toxin in the air and is not environmentally friendly. The only thing Algonquin Electronics Recycling shreds are hard drives as they are fully self-contained and therefore do not pose a threat when shredded. It takes more time to do this manually but we care about doing the job the right way. We Algonquin Electronics Recycling salvages all usable material that can be refined and made into feedstock.
