    Did you know?

    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.
    • Illegal dumping and exporting results in millions of tonnes of waste going to developing countries, where it is mined for precious metals and then dumped. This process poisons workers and the global environment.
    • The precious metals in e-waste are estimated to be 40 to 50 times richer than ores mined from the earth. Throwing these away wastes precious global resources that could be recovered and reused. The toxins found in e-waste can cause reproductive disorders, cancer, disruption in endocrine, and other serious health issues. Even tossing one item matters, since electronic devices contain heavy metals including lead, mercury, chromium, and more.
    • Companies like Quantum help businesses make a difference by facilitating the proper disposal of electronics that have outlived their usefulness. Our processes ensure that there is no contamination of the environment.

    Recycling Your E-Waste in Calgary

    The Production of E-Waste in Calgary

    Calgary is a city of international residents, with 25% being foreign-born. There are over 120 languages spoken in Calgary, and it’s the fourth-largest city in Canada. All of those people and businesses have one thing in common, however – they all use electronic devices every day. From the individual with a smartphone, laptop, and tablet to the business with computers, servers, printers, and more, something has to be done with the over 13 million pounds of e-waste. The need for convenient recycling options will only grow as the city continues to develop.

    How to Recycle Business E-Waste in Calgary

    With the citizens and businesses of Calgary generating so much e-waste, it’s vital to know what resources you have to responsibly dispose of it. It’s hard for a business owner, who already has so much to do, to find appropriate resources. That’s why companies like Quantum work hard to educate those in Calgary about convenient business e-waste recycling options. More and more of the solid waste created in Calgary is e-waste, and if it’s not recycled businesses and the environment lose out. In fact, over 90% of the components in electronic devices can be reused in new products? This includes glass, plastic, and precious metals.

    Quantum Helps Recycle Calgary E-Waste

    Businesses don’t have time to take electronics to the usual drop off locations, which we completely understand. That’s why we offer pickups within 48 hours for companies that have 25 or more items to recycle. We can also arrange pickups for fewer items for a reasonable fee.

    When You Recycle E-Waste, the Planet Benefits

    The environmental and economic impact of discarded e-waste cannot be overstated. The toxic chemicals that get released into the air, soil, and groundwater can impact the area for decades to come. In addition, millions of dollars in precious metals are lost. To continue supplying electronics, new ores have to be mined, and this is often done in areas without employee or environmental protections. When you recycle e-waste in Calgary, you make a difference to the entire planet.
