Deleted files can often be recovered, and that’s a problem when you’re passing your PC or PC-related tech along to someone else.  Whether it’s sensitive financial data, business documents, or scandalous photos that could be used to blackmail you, you probably don’t want people getting their hands on your private data.  Fortunately, you can take steps to protect your data, whether you’re getting rid of a PC, external hard drive, or USB stick.  Turtle Wings & Data Killers electronics recycling with data destruction guarantees that data is deleted completed and that your computer is properly disposed of.

Computers are the largest segment of electronic products being recycled and are expected to maintain their dominance in the future, thanks to the speed of microchip developments and a decrease in computers’ average life cycle.  A significant percentage of “recycled” computers were found to still contain data, according to a study conducted by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID).  With each computer containing data on it’s hard drive, it is extremely important to thoroughly destroy your data with a trusted recycling and destruction company like Turtle Wings & Data Killers.  In our ten plus years of operation, we have never had a data breach and we do NOT re-sell any hard drives – ever!
