Removing Personal Information from Cell Phones and Tablets?

I have a drawer containing a few cellphones and a tablet. They all have cracked screens and such. I want to recycle them, but I really don't trust tossing them into the trash, because I feel that my personal information is still on them. What should I do?

If you can turn them on still with the charging cord, you can erase and clear the history.

Even so, I felt more safer breaking it and recycling it in pieces.

Breaking them into pieces sounds like the best way to go. Do I have to take out the battery before I break it.

And the sim card to? I don't know If I even have a hammer any more. Was it hard? Thanks

You can open it and remove the SIM card. You can also take it to an electronic recycling center.
