Secure Solid State Drive
and Hard Drive Disposal

If you’re looking for the best way to dispose of hard drives and solid state drives, Techbuyer’s data sanitisation service is a secure, environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution.


Secure Data Sanitisation

With industry-leading software from White Canyon and Blancco, we sanitise 100% of your data to the highest CPA standard. This makes recovery of your data impossible. Once all data has been removed, we remanufacture your HDDs and SSDs into quality refurbished IT solutions which prevents quality technology going to waste.

Our data sanitisation service has a 100% secure audit trail with full certification provided. We data erase over 12,000 hard drives a month and have been protecting company data for over 18 years.

“We pride ourselves on our ability to offer a first-class service across the board. Our technical knowledge is something that we have worked extremely hard on building over the years, and has enabled us to offer complete sanitisation solutions for SSDs, HDDs, PCs and laptops.”

Secure Data Destruction

Whilst our secure data erasure service destroys 100% of data, there are circumstances in which businesses also need a form of HDD disposal which physically destroys their devices. At Techbuyer, we also offer a hard drive destruction service which is carried out at our secure IT Asset Disposition facility, or within our mobile shredding truck at your company’s site.

For this service we use a shredder which cuts HDDs and SSDs into tiny pieces. These scrap hard drive pieces are disposed of according to Waste Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations, which is the most environmentally responsible method possible. We have a secure chain of custody, GPS tracked transport and asset certifications for complete peace of mind, and our specialised team can also sanitise your hard drives before shredding.

IT Asset Disposition Service (ITAD)

Our IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) service disposes of IT equipment in a secure and environmentally friendly manner. We are proud to be the fastest company in the UK to achieve the ADISA accreditation – the leading security standard for ITAD organisations.

We are trusted by thousands of businesses, universities, and governmental organisations every year to dispose of their IT hardware securely. Our core business contributes to the circular economy and we are proud to invest in reuse wherever possible.

Our team have over 18 years of experience in protecting company data and processing a variety of servers, storage and networking equipment, laptops and desktops from over 150 brands including HPE, Dell, IBM and Cisco.

What is Hard Drive Shredding?

We also recognise that there are some circumstances in which you would choose to shred your hard drive, such as Company Policy, Insurance or Legal Requirements, or when a device is nearing end-of-life. So, we also offer a 100% secure hard-drive shredding solution.

When a hard drive is nearing end-of-life a decision needs to be made as to how to dispose of your data. Often this is either by means of sanitisation, shredding or both. It is every organisation’s responsibility to dispose of sensitive information which may be stored on the drives, and destroying the device completely is a secure way of doing so.

The shredder is a heavy-duty piece of machinery that takes the hard drive and cuts it up into tiny pieces. For extra peace of mind, we can also sanitise the hard drives prior to shredding. To find the best solution for your requirements speak to one of our data security specialists.

On-site and Off-site Shredding Available

There are two options when it comes to shredding hard drives. The first option is carrying out the services at our secure, ADISA accredited engineering facility. Alternatively, we can bring a mobile shredding truck to your premises.

A Disposal Service You Can Trust

We operate to the highest standards of security, quality and environmental responsibility which is demonstrated by our extensive accreditations. With ISO 9001 for Quality management, 14001 or Environmental management, 27001 for Data Security and Information, and 45001 accreditations and ADISA certification, Techbuyer provides peace of mind that all IT hardware is processed in a secure, safe and sustainable manner. Gaining these industry certifications is a source of pride for our global team and provides peace of mind for our customers.

All vehicles are GPS tracked, facilities fitted with 24/7 CCTV and your IT assets are only ever handled by verified personnel. This ensures a secure chain of custody from the point of collecting your hard drives right through to destruction. All storage, erasure and destruction takes place in our fully secure, IT Asset Disposition Centre.

We are one of the few ITAD companies in the UK that have passed the stringent security requirements of the ADISA audit process, which demonstrates that we continuously maintain the highest industry standards when it comes to data security.

Zero to Landfill

At Techbuyer, we specialise in breathing new life into quality IT hardware that would otherwise be sent to landfill. We dispose of shredded hard drives in a way that is fully compliant with the Waste Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations. We also have a zero-to-landfill policy and refurbish over 99% of the components we receive, with the remaining recycled according to WEEE regulations.

Our services reduce e-waste and provide cost-effective, sustainable IT solutions for our customers around the world. Disposing of used HDDs and SSDs with us also contributes towards your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets.
