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.
