Back Thru The Future understands these risks and has the proven tools and the experience to guide our clients through this complicated regulatory landscape


Back Thru The Future® provides NIST Special Publication 800-88 “Guidelines for Media Sanitization” approved onsite hard drive shredding and degaussing services to the Washington D.C. Metro Area. Federal data privacy regulations require personally sensitive data be destroyed prior to the disposal of the media it is recorded on. The destruction must adhere to NIST guidelines. BTTF is among a select few licensed electronic recycling businesses that is also NAID AAA certified as a secure data destruction operation for both plant-based and mobile hard drive shredding. NAID certification, as a recognized industry security standard, serves to satisfy regulatory vendor due diligence requirements.


These vehicles have been specifically designed to handle both large quantity hard drive shred projects and also to address the sometimes unique challenges of a shred project. The Predator I shredder has a unique large input throat of 16” versus the industry standard 9” throat.  This allows us to shred intact circuit boards most complete mobile computing devices and the old 12” magnetic reel tapes.  

The Predator II was specifically designed as a low height vehicle allowing access to low overhang loading docks.  It is also a cabover design providing much easier maneuverability and parking thus making it a “city” friendly vehicle.

The new Predator III utilize a shredder that includes a separate shred compartment for solid state devices.  It is capable of shredding SSD to a 3/8” particle size as required by NIST.  Most standard hard drive shredders come in 1.5”, 1” shred sizes.  


Beginning in 1996, BTTF was the first company in the US to offer standalone hard drive shredding services. Today, with over 1000 clients in the Northeast business corridor, we shred more hard drives from commercial sources than anyone else in the country.

Transporting live data media outside of your physical security perimeter is a high risk activity. Destroying onsite eliminates that risk.


Onsite shredding is the most effective method for sanitizing solid state storage and is a NIST approved method of data destruction. 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 limited number of onsite hard drive shredding services that can meet this standard.  Most mobile communication and computing devices use solid state storage. Server hard drives are rapidly incorporating solid state storage components. The sanitization of solid state storage devices is becoming a significant data security challenge. Adopting onsite 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 Washington D.C.


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.

100% of our client quality control surveys rate both our pre-project and
post-project communications as “Excellent”
