    What should be done to hard drive, and or other stuff, to remove info, data, etc., before it goes to the recycler.

    I saw on a news program that you can take the hard drive out and pound it with a hammer. Should get a lot of frustration out anyway.

    I would think submerging it in water would work. Anyone know if water would work?
