Data Erasure

Data erasing enables the recycling of hard drives instead of physically damaging them. Hard drive sanitation offers an excellent solution for destroying data and ensuring value recovery.


Wiping a hard drive is an essential and more sustainable service for customers looking to generate budget savings. Businesses can redeploy cleaned hard drives within their organization or resell the wiped hardware.


EDM performs Data Erasure services using a KillDisk Industrial System machine, capable of providing up to seven layers of sanitation.


Hard Drive Crushing

A data crushing service provides a convenient method for the physical destruction of hard drives at a lower cost.


Crushing means puncturing physical holes in a hard drive using a hard drive crusher machine. The machine applies enough force to break and punch holes in each hard disk drive, providing an added level of data security.


This service is best for clients who own magnetic and solid-state hard drives and prefer a quick and easy one-two punch.

Hard Drive Shredding

EDM’s service trucks offers on-site industry-leading shredding technology that can shred thousands of storage media in one day, strip the data-bearing media into tiny pieces, and ensure information is irretrievable.


We facilitate final inventory reconciliation by scanning every hard drive serial number before slicing it. Our on-site shredding service ensures the proper destruction of the hard disks and guarantees all data will be completely unrecoverable.


This service is perfect for clients needing high volume hard drive destruction services at their data center sites.
