We are about to scrap several old copy machines. I know they have hard drives in them. Should they be removed, wiped or what are normal company procedures for destroying any potential data on it before decommissioning it.

Software/Hardware used:
Ricoh Copies

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes, they should be removed and destroyed. If you are leasing, any new machines should include in the lease that you become the owner of the hard drives upon return of the copiers.
