In professional environments, hard disk drives (HDDs) regularly contain sensitive data that requires stringent protection from unauthorised access. With Rhenus Data Office's HDD destruction service, you get exactly what you need - for us, the protection of your data after their intended use period comes first. Convince yourself of our first-rate service and take a look at our specific solutions for your requirements.
Prior to disposal, we provide you with the required number of security containers. The location within your premises will be mutually agreed to ensure ease of access both for your employees as well as our collection personnel. These containers will be filled with HDDs 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, ensuring safe storage of your HDDs until collection day.
Maximum security at every process stage
At every step of the stationary HDD destruction process, we ensure security and transparency for you. On request or per a fixed schedule, we shall collect the filled security containers; for long-term requirements, you will receive an empty container in exchange on every collection. Our rigid-body collection vehicles transport the collected containers to the Rhenus security plant in charge of destruction, where the containers are opened, the HDDs' individual barcodes are scanned to document their destruction and then directly fed into a specialised HDD shredder unit. Within the plant, all handling of the containers and HDDs is conducted within supervised, enclosed and access-protected areas.
Our employees are specially-trained on a regular basis and obligated to the data security provision of §53 BDSG (neu). Our high-performance shredders can destroy up to 300 HDDs per hour. All remaining particles are then transferred exclusively to certified and audited electronic waste disposal plants for recycling.
Alongside your bill, you will receive a destruction certificate confirming the destruction of your HDDs as well as their appropriate disposal. Full documentation of our service including the day of collection, waste type with waste code number, cost centres and respective costs is available on request.
