Safely Dispose of Old Computers

It is important to erase your personal information from old computers before you dispose of them.

Simply reformatting a hard drive or reinstalling the operating system does not guarantee the old data is unreadable. Physically destroy the hard drive or use a special "wipe" program. These programs, such as Active@ KillDisk and Softpedia DP Wiper, are free and meet government security standards.

Additionally, some refurbishers will also safely dispose of old electronics and securely wipe your data. These inlcude the Apple Recycling Programand the Microsoft Refurbisher
