So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
Nearly 200,000 citizens reside in Burlington alongside 8,000 businesses that decided to headquarter right here in the beautiful community. There’s a nearly endless list of reasons why the people and businesses of Burlington love the area so much, but there is one big problem that the city is just now coming together to tackle: e-waste.
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 Burlington 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 Burlington 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.
Burlington’s economy and number of residents is growing at a rate that outpaces the national average. That’s very exciting for those inside the city who call it home and even more exciting for the many people, businesses, and investors who are looking to move in as they chase after new opportunities. However, all of this growth has also led to an increased amount of e-waste, and it’s hurting the environment at large.
Most people don’t realize that only about 12.5% of our end-of-life electronic devices are actually recycled. The rest go straight to landfills or, perhaps worse, incinerators. With many of the components in electronics being hazardous, improper disposal releases toxins into the environment–and it also harms our economy.
When you choose to recycle your e-waste, you’re having a much bigger impact than you probably realize. Not only is your choice to recycle helping to keep truly harmful chemicals and materials out of the environment we live in, it’s also allowing the 90% of recoverable components within the average device to be extracted and put into new items for citizens everywhere to enjoy.
Not only can the plastic of electronics be used to make park benches, playgrounds, and outdoor furniture for people to enjoy in Burlington and beyond, the precious metals like gold and silver along with steel, glass, plastic, aluminum, and copper can all be re-used in brand new products.
Think that recycling your e-waste is too complicated? Think again. For businesses in Burlington, you can simply schedule a pickup of your end-of-life electronics whenever it’s convenient for you. Whether you have a dozen computers, a huge old copier, or any other electronic device that you no longer need, Quantum can take it off your hands.
Not only will you receive a certificate denoting your positive impact on Burlington and beyond, but you’ll also have confidence that the hazardous materials will be disposed of safely–along with any data that may have been on your devices.
The pickup service offered by Quantum is for businesses only. Please visit EPRA to find your nearest residential electronics recycling location.
