remember that with the latest US laws, that certain data (e.g. hard
drives, magnetic media) *must* be destroyed on the supposition that
they contain sensitive personal data.

If you don't do so, you can create yourself a legal liability.

(do NOT ask me about equipment sold by someone in South Austin
who is now out of business, who should have been wiping drives.)
