I have all my droplets destroyed, but volumes seem to still be up according to my payment details. Why?

^as seen above I have no active droplet, but still volumes that I bought for those droplets, I am getting charged for. What I did wrong and how to destroy those volumes?

Hey friend,

Volumes are independent from droplets. They can be detached from one and added to another. It is important that these not be destroyed with a droplet by default, as customers may keep vital data on them and treat their droplets as disposable (a good use of a cloud infrastructure).

To find/remove your volumes, look for the Volumes link under the Manage tab on the left-hand side of the panel at cloud.digitalocean.com.
