We're held to some standards that seem to be a good practice. We remove all of our hard drives, degauss them, then they're placed in a locked bin. We contract with a company that logs the serial numbers then sends the drives through a metal shredder that chops them into teeny tiny bits. Finally, we get a certificate of destruction.

They do the same for backup tapes, optical platter, CDs, thumb drives, etc...
