How about encrypt the drive while in use?  Something like bitlocker if you are running Windows Vista+

Encrypting the drive should be a no brainer (though I am paranoid about security), but securely wiping when disposing of the drive is another step I would take.  I've used DBAN (https://dban.org/) in the past but it does not appear it works for SSDs.  You can download a free trial of their software that works for SSDs (found via that same link), or you can just physically destroy the drives with a hammer.

Why do you destroy the hard drive? If you are caring the data on the drives, you can just wipe the hard drive and then nobody could restore the data. It's much easier and just have a try.
