Secure Product Destruction


Picture this: You’re a retailer, manufacturer, or other business with pallets of products that you cannot use or sell. This happens for a variety of reasons, from defective products, and off-spec production runs to outdated or recalled merchandise. 

When those items come back to you, they often end up in some corner of a warehouse and no one knows quite what to do with them. Whether your items are proprietary products, or sensitive and classified items, secure destruction ensures that those items won’t end up in the wrong hands, helping your organization avoid potential liability. 

That’s where our specialized destruction services come in.

  • Outdated company shirts and uniforms

When Should I Use Product Destruction? 

Product Recall

If your company is facing product recalls you will want to make sure that they are adequately disposed of. If your company requires proof of destruction, Augusta Data Storage will provide you with a certificate of destruction. 

Counterfeit Products

For the safety of others it is important to discard any products that may result in identity theft, copyright infringements, or distribution of false documentation. 

Defective Products

Don’t risk injuring or misusing a product by reshelving a product recall. Safely and securely destroy any products that could cause harm to your brand. 

Distribution Center Overstock

If your product has reached the end of its life consider e-cycling. Deleting your information of a product does not ensure your safety. Securely destroying it will ensure that no one will ever reach that information. 

Secure and Safe

Keep your clients, employees, and company safe by securely destroying and outdated items with sensitive information. Augusta Data Storage provides safe and secure shredding and destruction on or off-site.
