Clients are always welcome to drop-off items to be destroyed at our secure facility during normal business hours or call us to dispatch a specialized crew to pick-up materials or even destroy onsite using our state of the art hard drive shredding truck. Either way, you may appoint a representative to witness the data destruction. Available services include shredding, degaussing, crushing and wiping for hard drives and other types of media. Potomac eCycle utilizes three large industrial shredders which can shred devices and electronics large and small.

For the most critical destruction needs, we can even provide full destruction report that includes chain-of-custody tracking, serialized inventory of destroyed media, and video surveillance.

Why Data Destruction?

Simply pressing delete or reformatting a hard drive is NOT enough to protect sensitive data.
It is critical that hard drives be securely wiped, degaussed or physically destroyed.

  • Personal

    Smartphones, tablets, and computers possess detailed records of your life – from credit card info to passwords to pictures of your kids. Identity theft can still happen if you simply delete files or even reformat your hard drive.

  • Medical

    Healthcare providers collect very sensitive patient information that must be protected according to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”).

  • Financial

    Financial institutions rely on the integrity of their electronic transactions and they must protect valuable information to maintain customer confidence in addition to legal requirements imposed under the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (“FACTA”).

  • Defense

    Military and Law Enforcement Agency devices contain mission-critical data that must be destroyed according to various protocols including those promulgated by the Department of Defense (“DOD”), National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”), and the National Security Agency (“NSA”)
