The hard drive shredder can also take care of data tapes, USB sticks, and mobile phones, with the following shredding rate per hour:
- 300 hard drives

“The mobile facility also offers the digital shredding of hard drives, solid state drives, and data tapes, and also the degaussing of HDD and tapes,” said Xperian. Images of the truck are posted below.
