MEDIA & HARD DRIVE SHREDDING
At Shred St. George, we recognize that confidential information can exist in many forms beyond just paper documents. That’s why we offer secure destruction services for various types of media, including hard drives, floppy disks, CDs, X-rays, and microfilm. Whether you need to dispose of outdated media or ensure compliance with HIPAA regulations for patient information, our services guarantee that your information will remain safe and secure, regardless of its format.
Shred St. George is equipped to securely destroy a variety of sensitive items including CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, x-rays, floppy disks, and LTOs, among others.
Rest assured that we have obtained the necessary endorsements for NAID AAA Certification for each of these items. It is crucial to be cautious when entrusting your HIPAA protected records, such as x-rays, to a third party. Many companies may attempt to remove your old x-rays when the price of silver is high without proper vetting, potentially releasing PHI (Protected Health Information) to unauthorized individuals. Shred St. George offers two responsible options for the proper disposal of these x-rays. Please give us a call, and we will be happy to explain them to you.
Hard Drive Destruction
Our specialized equipment for destroying hard drives is designed to allow you to observe the destruction process either at your location or at our secure facility, which is monitored by video surveillance and follows strict protocols. If you choose the latter option, we will collect the hard drives from you, securely lock them in a bin, and transport them in a locked truck to our shredding facility. In either case, we will record the serial numbers of each hard drive and provide you with a list of the destroyed hard drives via email.
Hard drive destruction = digital decimation.
To comply with HIPAA regulations, it is mandatory for organizations to destroy protected health information (PHI) at the end of its retention period. Shred Shred St George’s hard drive destruction techniques are a responsible and cost-effective means of meeting HIPAA’s privacy standards.

HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION PROCESS
Hard Drive Destruction Process:
Shipping hard drives to distant businesses that only offer low prices and a mailed certificate can pose several risks.
If your organization has a large amount of IT assets that you are turning over, we can look at the full amount of materials and potentially even purchase that outdated IT equipment and while certifying that all hard drives, solid state drives, and any other confidential data-containing components are mechanically destroyed prior to scrapping.
Using Shred St. George as your starting place for ITAD (Information Technology Asset Disposition) makes great sense, and we have absolutely competitive and confidential offerings.
