Hard Drive Destruction with SustainAbility & Electronic Recyclers International (ERI)

We have locked containers at our sites for your data destruction needs.

All hard drives placed in these containers are sent directly to ERI for destruction. ERI destroys data in accordance with (NAID) The National Association for Information Destruction and the (DOD) Department of Defense standards. 

 

ERI takes data protection seriously. In addition to the shredding process, which destroys 100 percent of your device’s data, ERI operates surveillance cameras, metal detectors and third-party security at all ERI facilities, ensuring devices and data never leaves an ERI facility.

It is our goal to provide the most affordable recycling services possible to our community.

Due to recent changes in recycling markets, it has become

more expensive & labor intensive for us to disassemble televisions containing wood.

Because of these changes, we have been forced to raise our prices on these items.

We understand that these items are heavy and can incur a significant cost for ethical recycling.

Please be assured that we are doing everything that we can to keep our pricing as low as possible during these market fluctuations.
