Hard Disk Destruction

Hard disk destruction with GDPR destruction of Hard Disk and Data storage devices. Disk Destruction At RCS Recycling we have a portable 12-tonne disk press capable of destroying 4 hard disks at a time. The process involves snapping the disks in half which destroys the internal platter of the disk. The two pieces are then shattered into small fragments. The next step in the procedure involves using a 120-tonne static machine to further fragment the remaining pieces.  Static or off-site disk destruction The process used in the destruction of disks conforms to GDPR, SEAC and MOD Data destruction standards and we will provide Certification of Secure GDPR Disposal for your records. We welcome our clients to observe our portable crusher in action. Additional services available If required we can record the hard disk model and serial numbers. Please get in touch to discuss any specific requirements you may have and we will do our very best to help you. Our Methods of Disposal Following destruction of your disks, all materials are granulated and recycled under the WEEE and GDPR directives using eco-friendly methods. All Hard Disks and Storage Devices are securely destroyed by granulation to DIN 66399 P-4 Shredded Standard.


  • Hard disks and storage devices are granulated into SEAC/MOD/GDPR standard 3mm chips using our 120-tonne static shredder.
  • Media tapes are incinerated to GDPR standards.
  • Storage media plastics and plastic TFT/CRT/TV screen bezels etc. are ground into pellets. They are then re-used in plastic extrusions and garden furniture.

Flourescent Tubes and Battery Disposal
FLUORESCENT TUBES Fluorescent Tubes contain in general 94% Glass, 4% Ferrous and Non ferrous metals, and 2% Phosphor Powder, It is within this phosphor powder that the most hazardous element is contained- Mercury. Some 100 million lighting tubes (about 20,000 tonnes) and 100,000 tonnes of CRT glass are scrapped each year in the UK. Currently these are usually shredded and dumped in landfill sites. The Environment Agency has therefore determined that Fluorescent Tubes are now classified as Hazardous Waste in England and Wales, as Special Waste by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), and therefore should preferably be recycled or if absolutely necessary, taken to specific landfill sites which can cater for mercury bearing wastes. The actual number of sites in the UK that can cater for such waste is very limited and, given high transportation and disposal costs nowadays, this makes recycling of your Fluorescent Tubes the most economical and environmentally friendly option. RCS Recycling separates the individual components of Fluorescent tubes and recovers them for recycling or re-use in a variety of industries. Apart from the Environmental aspect to Recycling Fluorescent Tubes, it is also very important to the health and safety of your employees, an employee for example attempting to dispose of a Fluorescent Tube in a skip, not only would he be condemning the whole skip as Hazardous Waste, with costly consequences of the safe disposal, but he would also be exposed to the potential dangers of broken glass and also the inhalation of small amounts of toxic materials released as dust and vapour.
