Service to pull data off a bunch of old computers and then recycle, in bay area?

So I'm in the SF bay area and I have a TON of old useless computers. 2 old mac laptops, 1 old windows laptop, and one old windows desktop. As far as I know, none of them work anymore. About to move across the country, so it's time to deal with it.
Here's what I'd like to be able to do:
- pay someone a not unreasonable amount of money to
- take all the machines
- yank their hard drives
- copy their hard drives either to a big usb drive or to a bunch of DVDs
- either destroy the old hard drives or give them back to me, and
- recycle the rest.
Does anyone know any business around here that will do that sort of thing? Surely this has to be a need that people in silicon valley have all the time...
