Acceptable forms of digital media are: floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, laser disks, flash/thumb drives, VHS tapes and BETA tapes. Digital machinery, such as hard drives and media players, is not accepted.

All digital media are completely destroyed, and the data on them is unrecoverable. Certificates of destruction may be requested. Hand-held mobile devices, such as cell phones and mp3 players, may be dropped off at the event for recycling later. They will not be immediately destroyed at the event.
