Is My Information Secure?
E-Waste Harvesters ensures compliance with all federal electronic waste disposal which includes a series of data destruction processes that ensure your privacy. Each computer is disassembled completely, each component going into its own container. Hard drives are removed and taken to the hard drive processing room where they are connected to a server array and wiped several at a time. During this process, the program used bypasses the boot sequence on the drive and immediately begins to erase the data. At no time are hard drives booted to the operating system to access files. For more information, please refer to the E-Waste Harvesters documents located on this page.
