I had a drive at work that I wanted to destroy the data. I dismantled it and removed the platers and smashed them up then disposed of the electronics in the WEEE bin.

My last one had a rather short dance with a 9lb lump hammer, then went into the bin

Get an Enclosure (About £15.00) and turn it into an External Hard Drive and use it for back-up or storage.
