Benefits of Electronic Destruction

Prevent Identity Theft

Environmentally Friendly

Shredding reduces electronics down to their component materials, which are then sorted and recycled. Our methods ensure that your devices do not end up in landfills, preventing environmental damage.


Your data will be protected two-fold with our rigorous data removal and shredding process. We ensure that your confidential information is thoroughly destroyed and safe from recovery.


Metals including gold, copper, and silver are extracted from your devices to reduce the need for mining. Reusing natural resources saves energy, preserves land, and reduces pollution.
