How do I get rid of/destroy/throw out old network backup tapes that have personal information and customer information on them?

I have about 20 network backup tapes from before 2005. I was given them in the event of a catastrophic event on-site and in the event our network admins were fired for cause or whatever. The company is no longer in existence. The tapes have the company's database that includes person information including mine. I don't want these tapes, no one needs these tapes and I want to get rid of them such that no one else can do anything with them.
Some are DC-6525 and some are HP C7971A square tapes about 4" x 4".
