Types of Data Storage Devices

Sims Recycling Solutions offers several methods to destroy data, either at one of our secure facilities or on-site at our clients’ premises.

Magnetic Tapes

Clients with legacy tapes use Sims shredding services to destroy the tapes, along with the residual data.

Magnetic Hard Drives

Clients will typically elect to destroy any magnetic hard drives more than 4 years old. For newer hard drives, Sims offers on-site and off-site erasure, degaussing and shredding solutions.  Our solutions specialists can discuss your specific requirements and develop a plan that best ensures adherence to corporate compliance and data security programs and industry legislative requirements.

Solid State Drives

Sims offers proven data erasure and data destruction options for solid state hard drives.  Data erasure allows for reuse of the drives, while shredding of solid state drives offers a proven solution when clients do not want solid state drives reused or resold.

Mobile Device Storage

Memory from mobile devices can be erased and reused or shredded if reuse is not desired.
