Here at American Recycling, our #1 priority is data security. Our facility is fully equipped and certified to safely handle your data containing devices. Our process consists of Data Destruction and Data Sanitization. Upon customer request, we can provide on-site Data Destruction.
American Recycling Data Destruction guidelines for data drives meet the DOD 5220.22M requirements. Our Data Destruction machines include the Hard Drive Shredder, Data Shredder, and Mobile Hard Drive Crusher. Upon customer request these machines can be taken for on-site Data Destruction. For both on-site and off-site Data Destruction a Certificate of Destruction will be issued (upon customer request). Once these data-containing hard drives are destroyed; data information is unable to access directly from the breakage of the magnetic disk within the hard drives. Each hard drive destroyed is scanned into the system tracking software to monitor the chain of destruction and a data validation is assessed for each Data Destruction Process. Types of data-containing items include LTO tapes, floppy disks, hard drives, solid state drives, VHS tapes, cassettes, USBs, phones, credit cards, CDs, and any type of microchips; are properly destroyed and irretrievable.
American Recycling Data Sanitization guidelines for Media Sanitization meet the NIST 800-88. American Recycling has secure, certified software that fully wipes the existing data up to three times, ensuring complete and secure Data Sanitization. If drives are unable to be read through the sanitization machines; drives will be sent to Data Destruction. A monthly data validation is assessed and drives are re-evaluated to assure that no data is contained within drives.
Upon request, we will also provide our clients who would like to be assured more security for their data-containing devices, with a secure cart to store their devices in. The security cart we provide is tamper-proof with an Internal Lockjaw® locking system for secure disposal of data.
