Talk to your organization's computer security people.  They will have a
standard procedure for getting rid of dead disks.  We on the internet can't
know what they are.  I'm betting it involves some degree of paperwork.

Around here, I give the disks to my local computer support who in turn give
them the institutional disk destruction team.  I also zero-fill the disk if
possible, but that's not an official requirement.  The disk remains
sensitive until the process is complete.
