But then you run into what officially constitutes "destroy the disk".
There's still money involved.
Iron Mountain has shredders capable of shredding disk drives. They're
bonded. So that should be acceptable.
The idea of tannerite and a .50cal may be effective but probably doesn't
"officially" constitute "destroy the disk".
Then you get into the touchy feely green argument. Better to reuse then
discard. IDK what hazards disk drives are to the landfill. Or if they
are recyclable.
Besides, people preparing disk drives makes them available on the used
market. Some people never buy a new car; some people never own current
computer equipment.
