Successful Hard Drive Smashing Event

Posted by | Start the discussion

Sylvania Campus had their first Hard Drive Smashing event February 25, 2015 and it was a complete success!
20+ students, instructors, and staff smashed 234 hard drives & collected 152 other computer items for responsible eCycling! That’s approximately 351 lbs. of hard drives that were saved from the waste stream & a whole lot of data that won’t be available for identity theft – what a rewarding two hours!

Thanks to the Engineering students’ machines that held up under their first real world test, and thanks for all of your help in advertising, supporting, and participating in this event. Plans are in the works to continue our efforts during Earth Week and beyond.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
