Many thanks for the suggestions.  I sent an email internally with the methods mentioned and after a quick demo of despooling the tape into a shredder, our purchasing supervisor forwarded my email along with a note up the chain.  The attention given to recent data security lapses/incidents within the govt helped, so we will be purchasing a degausser.  The degausser will also help us with hard drive destruction, as it will provide an additional method to ensuring customer data doesn't end up in the news.

Friends don't email friends .exe or .com files.  So don't open those types of attachments!!

You know, it occurs to me that there are a number of nationwide 
document destruction companies that will destroy CDs, tapes etc.
