The simplest way would be to either drill several holes in the drive where the disc is located, or just break off the connectors on the back of the drive.
Doubtful that anyone would dry to disassemble the drive to get at the data.

Yes I erased the drives but, I was just told that they have programs that can retreave the data even if you erased everything on the drive. IS there a sure way to erase data that noone can retreave it again. Besdies the hammer? I want to bring them to the recycling plant this week. Thanks Heather

Do a low level format. There are programs that should do that.
