Those hard drives in your old, no longer used laptops and desktops may very well posses personal information that someone may be able to use to gain access bank accounts, credit cards, etc… Report Reply 0 replies · active 351 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down E-Waste Wellington · 351 weeks ago Hey JustMe, Go to E-Waste Wellington FB page and read about what we do with hard drives. Also, this article gives a name and number to contact for information destruction on PC’s and Laptop’s. Any computer recycled through us will have the data destroyed and the hard drive will be disassembled. Report Reply 1 reply · active 351 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 351 weeks ago I checked out your facebook page. But I don’t see any mention of the actual method you use. Just a vague statement…..”In accordance US Department of Defense standards, we GUARANTEE that after the cleansing process, all information will be forever purged.” Which DoDstandard? And which method do you use listed within that standard? And you perform this yourself (probably the most important aspect)? I think keeping this stuff out of landfills is a great endeavor. I would love to hear more about the process, as I have a few ‘leftovers’ sitting in the closet myself. Please don’t take my first comment as being directed towards you. But the general public is too eager to drop their unwanteds off with someone offering to help. I’ve heard of several horror stories with recycled cell phones. http://www.e-cycle.com/wireless-mobility-horror-s… This was an article not too long ago. Although it’s not a computer, I think it’s safe to say we have more sensitive information on our pcs. Caveat emptor. Report Reply Post a new comment Enter text right here!
