I've been around said operations before. Often you have to be a bonded
employee to even see what's on the floor. And you'll NEVER be allowed
to take anything off the floor in anything bigger than granular size.
They sign NDA's with the places that ship them the gear, therefore the
machines don't need to be 'decomissioned' or the data wiped because a
secured, bonded disposal site is guaranteed to destroy it.
