All data is destroyed by default, using one or more of the following methods:

  Multi Pass Overwriting

Magnetic Degaussing

​Physical Destruction


If you require documentation of data destruction, please see the following options:


Standard Recycling Certificate: No charge

  • A Standard Recycling Certificate will include a data destruction statement, responsible recycling clause, client information, and total weight of material submitted.


Recycling Count Sheet: $2 per line

  • A Recycling Count Sheet will be provided by request when a client needs a tally of the quantity of each kind of item that was submitted for recycling, such as PC, laptop, monitor, mouse, network switch, circuit board, hard drive, etc.
  • Due to their tendency to entangle themselves, all cables and wires in a load will be stated on a single line as a weight, rather than a quantity. Each count line will be billed at $2 regardless of the actual number of each type of item, so whether there are 2 or 200 PCs, that line on the count sheet would be billed at $2. Count sheets must include all items in a load.


Itemized Certificate of Recycling: $5 per hard drive

  • Itemized certificates may be requested for hard drives only.  
  • A chain of custody must be established, for the protection of the client and File 13.
  • In order to accomplish this, hard drives must be pulled from laptops, servers, PCs, etc. The make, model, and serial number of each hard drive must be documented by the client and submitted to File 13 at least 48 hours prior to the appointment.  
  • Hard drives submitted for proof of destruction should be turned over in a sealed box marked with “Data Destruction” and the name of the client.
  • File 13 will verify whether all hard drives are present and all information matches.
  • If the information on the paperwork submitted does not match the hard drives that were received, File 13 will contact the client to determine what further action needs to be taken, if any.


Video Proof of Data Destruction: $20 per hard drive

  • Video Proof of Data Destruction will be provided by request. An Itemized Certificate of Recycling will also be included.
  • A chain of custody must be established, for the protection of the client and File 13. 
  • In order to accomplish this, hard drives must be pulled from laptops, servers, PCs, etc. The make, model, and serial number of each hard drive   must be documented by the client and submitted to File 13 at least 48 hours prior to the appointment
