In this video, I show you guys how I destroy hard drives as well as take apart and salvage the components of an HP Laptop at my electronic recycling business.
I own an electronics recycling business in USA which focuses on refurbishing and/or scrapping electronic devices to make sure that there is as little waste as possible.
Owning and operating an ewaste business is interesting to say the least. Every single day is a brand new day with its own agenda and set of challenges. And of course, as you see in the video, the heat does not make it any easier!
In this video, I was paid for the secure data destruction of (4) hard drives that came out of customers computers. The way that I destroy them is by drilling holes which causes the mechanism to cease to function as well as the spinning platters inside to shatter.
I am very fortunate to have a carpenter neighbor who was able to build me a custom bracket/vice which holds both 2.5 and 3.5 hard drives in place as they are being drilled. I also go ahead and take apart an HP 17″ touchscreen laptop; salvaging the important working parts from within such as the motherboard, touchscreen lcd, sd card motherboard and trackpad. The importance of doing this instead of having them be shred and just getting paid for the weight is because I am able to salvage working components that can in turn be used to fix someone else’s laptop, making it useable again.
Thank you guys very much for taking the time to watch my video on how I destroy hard drives as well as salvage working components from an HP Touchscreen laptop.
