Digital copy machines contain hard drives full of private information. PC Disposal combines EPA compliant printer recycling with secure data removal. We can even pick up from your loading dock.
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).
Furthermore, PC Disposal takes title to your duplication equipment and protects you from liability. That is, your copier becomes our copier – protecting you and your company from legal woes and PR embarrassment.

PC Disposal is part of a family of technology businesses started in 1989. Kory Bostwick founded PC Disposal in 1998 because he was concerned that there were few environmentally-friendly options for companies who wanted to dispose of the toxic glut of obsolete computers that were filling offices – and ultimately – landfills.
With this idea in mind, PC Disposal has grown into one of the largest computer disposal firms in the industry. We've now expanded to provide recycling services for all types of electronic waste. In addition to home consumers, our clients include companies of all sizes throughout the United States and Canada, and many of our clients are Fortune 500 companies and U.S. government agencies.
Some of the companies and agencies who trust PC Disposal with their recycling and data security needs.
"For us it is just too risky to give our equipment to a company that
doesn't offer the choice to not resell our equipment. PC Disposal's
end-of-life solution gives me peace of mind and confidence that my equipment
will not come back to haunt us."

"We could not be MORE satisfied with PC Disposal! Not knowing a ton about how electronic recycling worked was an understatement when we really dug into the nitty gritty details and how VALUABLE it is to have it done PROPERLY! They went above and beyond to help with the packing, wrapping, moving and destroying of any vulnerable data we had!"
"Sprint Corporation and Time Warner pay PC Disposal...to take old equipment off their hands. The fee seems small compared with fines that can be levied should environmental regulators trace old equipment in a landfill back to a company."
"We have been using them for 15 years! PC Disposal is our one stop shop and NAID certified. They do charge a minimal fee for the data destruction in house with a full guarantee – that’s pennies compared to our clients’ data ending up in someone else’s hands."
