For those interested/concerned about information stored on their computers hard drive we have a copy of the "Data Security and Hard Drive Wiping Information"document provided by Vintage Tech Recyclers which describes the software used to wipe the hard drive and how they destroy the hard drive if it is still readable. We also receive a certificate from Vintage Tech Recyclers letting us know that all the information has been wiped from the computer hard drives dropped off at our collection events.
