So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.

  • E-waste around the world is more than 41.8 million tonnes, which represents tens of millions of dollars in potentially reusable resources. That’s why recycling is so important.
  • Managing and recycling the 705,640 lbs. of e-waste generated by the residents of Airdrie each year is vital to ensuring that economic growth and demand do not tax disposal sites or harm the local environment.
  • When glass is recycled, it’s separated into colors because glass retains its color even after recycling.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Airdrie

Computer Recycling in Airdrie

Laptop and desktop computers carry a high risk of data leaks, along with environmental hazards due to embedded batteries. When businesses need computer recycling services, it’s essential that the end-of-life assets are handled securely and in accordance with environmental regulations.

Quantum is also fully certified, so you can rest assured any personal data is properly destroyed and your smartphones are recycled responsibly.

Quantum can help Airdrie with e-waste

Airdrie is growing rapidly as large and small businesses hone in on this thriving regional hub. Airdrie is located at a critical junction, well poised for the influx of national and multi-national companies that are responsible for strong growth in the construction, transportation and logistics, and manufacturing sectors. As more people move here (between 4-5% population increases every year), so do their devices, contributing to an increasing amount of e-waste generated within the city. Airdrie’s particularly young demographic will create tons of e-waste.
