If onsite, there is usually a charge though but it completely depends on your circumstances. Shredding if where all your data holding devices are shredded to little pieces. Crushing is where, free computer recycling London uses a CESG approved crusher to stab a 2.5” hole straight through the hard drive leaving the platter irreversibly damaged. Data wiping – We have a large data wiping room at our site in London with over 30 systems continually wiping hard drive disks. It can take up to 1 hour per GB to successfully data wipe a hard drive which is a considerable amount of time but it does allow the hard drive to be re-used.
