All of our shredding services are performed at your site for all types of data bearing devices. We can customize our services to meet your specific security needs and because our equipment is capable of reducing devices to the smallest particle size in the industry, there is no classification level too high for us. Our processes and machinery meet or exceed all applicable standards set by national governing bodies, including: NIST 800-88, DoD 5200.22-M data sanitization, HIPAA/HITECH, Sarbanes-Oxley Act.


All relevant legislation and privacy laws have been met or exceeded, including Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, FACTA Disposal Rule, Bank Secrecy Act, Patriot Act of 2002, Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act, PCI Data Security Standard, and all other various local, state, and federal regulations. We are also a certified and approved government contractor under the Federal Government General Services Administration (GSA). Our internal certifications along with our mobile destruction protocols allow us to enter highly secure government and military installations.


Our hard drive shredding machinery has been specifically designed to shred durable hard drives and backup tapes to 40mm X 40mm particulate size, in a fraction of the time it takes to perform any other security service at the end of a device's life-cycle. We can shred a hard drive in approximately 15 seconds, which means we can sweep an entire data center more securely than any other method in a matter of hours, saving your organization valuable time and resources.

Our self-contained mobile shred units are capable of shredding any number of electronic information storage devices including:


- Mobile Phones


- Hard Disk Drives


- Backup Tape Media


- Solid State Hard Drives


- Floppy and Compact Disks


- USB Drives


- And more...



In the time it takes to perform a secure DoD level wipe, we can shred hundreds of disk drives. This frees our clients up to focus on other tasks, while knowing their information is safe and thoroughly destroyed. Everything we handle is also responsibly recycled following EPA and E-Steward standards and protocol. Our clients know that partnering with Resource 1 ensures the highest level of information security and destruction, in the most timely manner possible. Our professional staff encourages the client to witness the process firsthand, virtually eliminating the risk of information leakage through a chain-of-custody breach.


Upon completion of our shredding services, our clients receive a fully-auditable Certificate of Destruction outlining every device destroyed by their unique model and serial numbers. This information is generated and presented to the client prior to our technicians leaving your facility.
