11 How do I prepare a hard drive for disposal? If a piece of equipment contains a hard drive, you must certify that sensitive, confidential, or restricted data is no longer on your computer’s hard drive. The Excess and Surplus Property Disposal (ESPD) form is required for all items containing hard drives in order to certify that hard drives have either been wiped or indicate the drive should be destroyed. Wipe: your department certifies that it has erased the hard drive Remove: your department certifies that it has removed the hard drive before pick-up Recycle: your department requests that the equipment be recycled (“shredded”) by a scrap dealer to ensure destruction of the hard drive. Tip! Computers, copiers, printers, and servers all contain hard drives! 11
