stationary Data Carrier Destruction

In our modern world of work, confidential data is often stored on electronic, optical or magnetic data carriers. Once the retention period lapses, these data must be destroyed in a secure fashion to avoid unauthorised access and misuse.

This is where Rhenus Data Office comes in: We have a secure and eco-friendly solution for stationary data carrier destruction and their subsequent disposal.gung. 

Please note:

  • If you order a container to be collected during the next scheduled collection tour (usually within 2-4 weeks, depending on your area), you will not incur any extra costs except for the actual destruction collection and the delivery fee (see below). If you require the container for a longer period of time, we reserve the right to bill you for a monthly container rent, the exact amount being calculated based on the container's fill volume.

Delivery fee

Please note: To cover our logistical and road toll costs, we have been forced to introduce a one-time delivery fee, compounded per container delivered for permanent use by the customer. This fee is effective as of 1/1/2020 and is billed as 11,00 EUR per 250 litre container and 22,00 EUR per 600 litre container.

Due to technical constraints, we cannot list this fee as part of the shopping process and in your electronic order confirmation mail generated by our shopping cart. After placing your order, you will receive a final order confirmation mail by the Rhenus installation that will handle your order including all applicable costs and fees applicable.

Stationary data carrier destruction - how does it work?

Next to hard drive discs, electronic data carriers are the most popular choice of data medium these days. They are compact, portable and work with a variety of hardware. Some of these data carriers can only be written-on once. In any case, the question arises how to securely dispose of said data carriers once the stored data is no longer required - just deleting the data may not be enough in view of reconstructive software.

Similar to our document and hard drive destruction services, we provide you with security containers to collect your data carriers. The containers will be filled by your employees on-site until full.  If you ordered a key with your container, please attach this to the hook inside the lid and lock the container by pushing the lid shut. Now, the container cannot be opened by unauthorised persons.

As required by you, destruction will be conducted on request or on a regular (e.g. monthly) basis. After collection, the filled containers will be transported to the nearest secure plant and their contents shredded using high-performance desintegrators, meeting the specifications of applicable data protection laws and the DIN 66399 industry standard.

We will be happy to advise you and help you find the suitable container size and lock system for your individual requirements.

Following destruction, you will receive full documentation and a certificate of destruction with your bill.
