Hard Drive Shredding and Recycling Certification
The data recorded on hard drives located within your obsolete computer equipment represent significant organizational risk. Destroying your obsolete hard drives by shredding is the only absolute method of assuring complete data destruction. A hard drive is considered an electronic device by the NJ DEP. Only NJ DEP Class D permitted facilities are authorized to shred and recycle a hard drive in the State of NJ. In 2012 we successfully persuaded the NJ DEP to allow an amendment to the Class D permit that would allow onsite shredding of hard drives in NJ. We became the only company in the US that could legally provide onsite hard drive shredding services in NJ. In 2016 the State of NJ passed a law allowing non NJ DEP licensed shredders to provide onsite hard drive shredding (not plant based) for “data security” purposes. These non-licensed shredders must be NAID AAA certified and must deliver the shredded hard drive material to a Class D licensed facility for recycling and disposal purposes. Because of our strong environmental regulatory status as a hard drive shredder we have established a dominant market position in NJ with over a 70% market share of banks and hospitals. The strict and highly prescriptive data privacy regulations in these two industries have allowed us to evolve a set of specific data asset handling practices that are extremely well documented and meet and exceed the specific industry audit requirements for data destruction. We follow the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) “Guidelines for Media Sanitization” protocols for the destruction of all data media. NIST guidelines are our Federal Government’s standards and are the required data destruction standards for all Federal data privacy laws.
NAID AAA Secure Data Destruction Certified
We are the only NJ DEP Class D permitted facility that is also NAID AAA certified for both plant based and mobile hard drives shredding.
Diversity Vendor Qualified
We are certified by the SBA and NJ Economic Development Agency as a Small Business Enterprise.
We are certified by WBENC as a “Woman’s Owned Business”.
Over our 25+ years of experience as a computer recycling business, we have received numerous business awards for “entrepreneurial excellence” and have been featured in multiple business articles.
We never resell hard drives.
All hard drives are shred and the materials recycled within our highly efficient materials sorting systems. NAID AAA secure data destruction certification qualifies as “vendor due diligence” as required under data privacy regulations when you outsource the destruction of personally sensitive information.
ISO 9001 Quality Certified
ISO standards require that all processes be documented and rigorous quality control standards be maintained. This includes not only internal processes but also requires us to monitor customer satisfaction.
100% of our customer surveys rate us “excellent” for project related communications.
Getting Started On Your Computer Recycling Project
Provide us with an inventory of the items you want recycled ie. a count by type of item such as 5 desktop printers and 10 desktop PCs. Our pricing is based upon the type of item being recycled. Counts don’t need to be accurate. Our inventory audit reports list each item of equipment by manufacturer, model, serial number and weight. The quoted per item cost is multiplied by the actual number of items we receive.
We will provide you with a written project quote within 24 hours of your request. We include a detailed statement of services to be performed. If the quoted costs and services to be performed meet with your approval you can simply give us your verbal approval to proceed. We then arrange a convenient pick up date and collect all necessary information concerning your pick up location. In the event of larger projects or challenging pick up locations, we will send a project manager to determine the resources necessary for the project. Our internal recycling process normally takes approximately 3 weeks. At the completion of your project, all project documentation is also uploaded to our web based document archive “Compliance Library™”. This archive represents a convenient location to retrieve all project related documentation and also represents a complete regulatory required document repository for audit inquiries.
100% of our client quality control surveys rate both our pre-project and
post-project communications as “Excellent”
92% of our new client quality control surveys have been returned marked “exceeded expectations”.
