Information about this arrangement

Erasing or sanitizing electronic media does not guarantee that all private information is non-retrievable. British Columbia is a leader in protecting electronic data and its industrial shredder, ‘EDDIE’ (Evil Destroyer of Delicate Internal Electronics), breaks down electronic media, such as hard drives, handheld devices and flexible media, to a particulate size of ¾”.

All shredded material is sent off for 100% recycling and will be used for energy processes or turned back into raw materials to create new items such as cement, metal products, park benches, etc.

Government ministries must follow all policies and processes related to IT Asset Disposal in relation to all government electronic media disposals as per OCIO Information Technology Standards.


Pricing 

Pricing dependent on the type of secure electronic media destruction you or your business requires (serial number tracking, staging, sorting, short term storage, etc.) Items dropped off in Prince George or Surrey will be securely shipped to Victoria for shredding.
