Hard Drive Shredding in Pennsylvania

If you have data stored on old hard drives and other media, proper and safe disposal can be a challenge. Onsite shredding of hard drives, solid state storage, tapes and other media is the most secure and efficient method of destroying data.  NIST “Guidelines for Media Sanitization”, which publishes our federal government’s technical standards, recommends shredding as the best method for sanitizing to be disposed of media. 

Shredding of hard drives and other data media meets with all Pennsylvania State and Federal Data Privacy regulation’s data disposal requirements. 


Back Thru the Future has been providing environmentally compliant computer recycling and drive destruction services for over 30 years. In 2005 we became the first computer recycler in the country to offer stand alone hard drive shredding services. With over 1000 customers we have the experience and expertise to address any type of shredding project.


Back Thru The Future is a US EPA registered and NJ State DEP licensed Universal Waste (Hazardous Waste) electronics recycling facility. We are NAID AAA and PCI DSS certified secure processing facility- ISO 9001 (quality), 14001 (EHS), 45001 (OSHA) certified- R2 electronic recycler certified


Back Thru The Future owns and operates mobile hard drive shredding vehicles throughout the tri-state area. We operate both a high capacity plant based shredder and disintegrator.  Our shredders are capable of 3/8 of an inch shredding size required for NIST compliant SSD destruction and several are rated at over 2000 hard drives shred per hour.  We have the capability to address any type and size shredding project.



Onsite shredding is the most effective method for sanitizing SSD and solid state cards. Because of the very small size of solid state circuitry, NIST destruction guidelines require a maximum shred size of 1/2 inches. Back Thru The Future is one of only a very limited number of onsite hard drive shredding services that can meet this shred size standard. Today, most mobile computing devices utilize solid state storage. Server hard drives are rapidly incorporating solid state data storage components. The sanitization of solid state storage devices is becoming a significant data security challenge. Adopting onsite SSD shredding as your universal data destruction process eliminates the technical challenges of sanitizing solid state media and provides a one-stop solution to all of your data destruction needs.


As a Federal and State licensed electronic recycling facility, we provide a Certificate of Destruction that is also a regulatory required environmental compliance document. Our proprietary materials sorting process allows us to recapture nearly 100% of the materials used in the manufacturing of a hard drive, making a hard drive as close as possible to an environmentally sustainable product.
