Free Data Destruction & Other Related Services

SCRI strives to ensure secure and complete destruction of sensitive data. Our staff have police clearances on file. Our facility is gated and monitored by numerous cameras 24/7. We also have a security cage for hard drives prior to destruction.

Once an electronic product is shredded beyond recovery, all destroyed materials are further sorted and recycled to recover valuable raw materials by other organizations with the same environmental mission. It is important to SCRI that the end products from the destruction process do not end up in a landfill, and that all suitable materials are recycled and reused.

  • SCRI admin staff confirms request and schedules the pickup.

Witness Data Destruction Process for Free

Anyone may request to witness the shredding of their hard drive(s), data tapes or other data retention devices, at our facility in Acheson to ensure any of your standards and security protocols are met.

Certificate of Destruction

Once a computer has been disassembled and the hard drive has been removed, the hard drive is stored inside a secure, locked cage to ensure data security of materials received. The drive then proceeds through our destruction process by an Ameri-Shred hard drive shredder. Upon request, we will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction as physical evidence that your hard drives have been securely destroyed.

If you would like to make an appointment to witness your hard drive being shredded, contact our office by phone, (780) 914-0412, or email,
