At the end of each year, and sometimes more frequently, Baywell visits our Clients and recycles old computer equipment. For systems from non-HIPAA regulated organizations that can be re-purposed, we wipe the hard drives using industry standard tools, or install new ones, and re-purpose them or donate them to charities. For ALL server drives or workstation drives that may contain ePHI, we wipe and recycle the components. Most of the chassis, cards, power supplies go to Electronic Recyclers, but we extract all hard drives to disassemble ourselves. And here are the pictures from the last batch that we extracted.
