The Shredding of a Hard Drive in New Jersey is an Environmentally Regulated Activity
In 2006 Back Thru The Future® became the 1st electronic recycling company in the US to become NAID AAA certified for secure hard drive destruction. We are the only Class D licensed electronic recycling facility in NJ and the only licensed electronic recycler in the NYC area that has NAID AAA certification.
Mobile Hard Drive Shredding Prohibited In NJ 2008
In a Letter of Interpretation to Back Thru The Future the NJ DEP stated that a hard drive as an electronic device and a Universal Waste could only be recycled, disposed of or processed (shredding is considered processing) by a licensed Class D Universal Waste Consumer electronics processing facility. The NJ DEP further stated that since a Class D permit is issued to a specific geographical location mobile shredding of a hard drive anywhere in NJ was prohibited. NJ was the only State in the US that enforced this prohibition.
Class D License amendment allowing Mobile hard drive shredding 2013
The NJ DEP in April of 2013 issued an amendment to the Universal Waste Consumer Electronics license that allowed a Class D facility to provide onsite hard drive shredding as long as a list of handling requirements were met. Back Thru the Future was the first and only Class D facility to receive this amendment until 2015. For that period of time we were the only business in the US that could legally provide onsite hard drive shredding services in NJ.
Mobile Hard Drive Shredding for Data Security purposes permitted for non NJ DEP licensed shredders but with significant restrictions. 2016
In January of 2016 NJ passed a law permitting non licensed shredders to provide onsite hard drive shredding for data security purposes. Approved onsite shredding law.
Back Thru the Future has been providing environmentally compliant computer recycling 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 employs 4 mobile hard drive shredding vehicles and 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.
SOLID STATE DRIVES (SSD) ARE HERE!
Onsite shredding is the most effective method for sanitizing SSD and solid state cards and is the only approved method of SSD destruction by NIST. Because of the very small size of solid state circuitry, NIST requires a maximum shred size of 1/2″. Back Thru The Future is one of a very limited number of onsite hard drive shredding services that can meet this standard. Most mobile communication and computing devices use solid state data 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 in NJ.
THE SMART WAY TO RECYCLE YOUR HARD DRIVES
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 this a highly efficient method for recycling your hard drives as well as a data security best practice.
