So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
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. We offer reuse and recycling services to help Barrie businesses minimize their environmental impact and ensure compliance. At the same time, our certified data destruction services give you peace of mind in knowing any sensitive data is managed with the utmost level of security from the moment it leaves your facility.
Smartphones contain valuable materials including gold, silver, and lithium batteries. Without proper recycling, these resources go to waste. Furthermore, should they wind up in landfills, the lithium batteries in smartphones pose risks of fire and explosion. We work with Barrie businesses and municipalities to make smartphone recycling convenient. Quantum is also fully certified, so you can rest assured any personal data is properly destroyed and your smartphones are recycled responsibly.
Barrie is a smaller city but many residents commute to nearby Toronto. The city has grown significantly in the last few years, a trend that looks to continue. Residents of Barrie have easy access to major employers, entertainment, and airports across the region. Every day those in this city face the question of what to do with unneeded electronic waste. Major employers in Barrie also need solutions that help them recycle their e-waste quickly and easily, without detracting from their business operations. That’s where Quantum can step in and help.
Business owners already have a lot on their plate, and they often don’t want to think about how to set up a new collection and recycling process. However, they do understand the importance of keeping costs low and keeping toxins out of the environment. Getting information about how to handle electronics recycling at work is the answer. Unwanted electronics are a problem for businesses who don’t have room to store extra equipment and don’t know how to dispose of it. It’s essential to divert electronics from the waste process and reuse components – which you can do with 90% of an electronic device.
If you’re looking for help with your electronics recycling, simply reach out to Quantum. We work across Canada to offer businesses access to recycling services that make it simple to reduce waste without interrupting your daily work. We offer pickups within 48 hours for companies that have 25 or more items. You can also order pickup for a small fee if you have fewer electronics to recycle. We are proud to operate within the guidelines of a variety of recycling initiatives, including EPRA (Electronics Products Recycling Association), OES (Ontario Electronic Stewardship) and NAID-Canada (National Association for Information Destruction).
Canada has been fighting e-waste for a number of years. It’s illegal to export electronic waste to developing nations, and since 2004 the Electronics Product Stewardship Canada has been creating models for e-waste stewardship. This waste stream is the fastest growing in the world, and when you divert electronics you make a significant difference for people, wildlife, and the environment as a whole. Right now only 20% of e-waste in Canada is recycled, and at Quantum we are dedicated to helping that percentage grow. Be part of the solution and let us help you recycle today!
The pickup service offered by Quantum is for businesses only. Please visit EPRA to find your nearest residential electronics recycling location.
