Secure Copier Recycling and Disposal

Recycle for the Earth

Digital copy machines contain hard drives full of private information

It’s a little known fact that nearly every digital copier built since 2002 contains a hard drive. One of the hard drive's primary purposes is to store a digital copy of what was scanned on that machine. Discarding or selling one of these digital photocopiers without having the hard disk thoroughly erased can be a security and public relations nightmare.

That’s what happened to Affinity Health Plan, a New York insurance company. When CBS News purchased randomly selected copy machines from a used copier warehouse in New Jersey, the insurance company was a previous owner of one of the copiers and the photocopy machine’s harddrive was loaded with 300 pages of individual medical records. They included everything from drug prescriptions, to blood test results, to a cancer diagnosis. A potentially serious breach of federal privacy law.

PC Disposal removes data from copier hard drives before recycling

PC Disposal applies the same security methods to copy machines that we offer for our client’s computers. Depending on services requested, PCD will destroy copier hard drives or thoroughly wipe all data from hard disks using Department of Defense recommended methods (on-site service available).
