Our county highway department will take them if you want to dispose of them. Drill holes in the hard drives to make the data non-recoverable.

I wouldn't depend on drilling holes. Most devices nowadays use flash memory, that can retain data for over 10 years.
If I were worried about data, I'd take out the memory and burn it.
