Degaussing: the sustainable choice

Erasing your end-of-life hard drives with a degausser is the eco-friendly alternative to shredding or incineration. More and more businesses are “going green” in this environmentally conscious age, and sustainable hardware disposal is becoming increasingly important.

  • Degaussing creates no waste product. Since degaussed hard drives are not physically broken or destroyed, there is no mess or pollution to clean up.
  • Degaussed hard drives can be dismantled and recycled for scrap value – including 100% recyclable aluminium, gold from circuit boards, and rare earth metals used in magnets.
