Hard-Drive & Media Destruction

Our ever changing world

Our world is now digitalised and technological advancements are being made faster than ever. Because of this, we now have a whole variety of formats to store data on, from CDs and DVDs to USB sticks and hard drives.

Ensure the data cannot be retrieved

Often, people think that by simply deleting files or wiping data off these devices they’ve managed to get rid of the information entirely. But, unfortunately this isn’t always the case. As long as the hard drives or media materials are physically intact, there’s always a chance that the information on them can be retrieved. So, the only way to permanently destroy your digital data is via complete physical destruction.

100% destruction of your data

Printwaste can help you with this. Our hard drive and media destruction service will 100% destroy your confidential information across multiple formats – protecting you from data breaches, fraud and identity theft, and keeping you GDPR compliant.

We will help you choose the right shredding service for you

On-Site Shredding
With our mobile hard-drive and media shredding service, you can watch your data and media be securely destroyed on your own premises.
Off-Site Shredding
With our off-site service, we’ll safely transport your confidential hard-drive and media materials to our high-security shredding facility and destroy it so that data cannot be recovered.
