    Did you know?

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

    • Only 20% of e-waste in Canada is currently recycled, which is a serious concern for both Canadians and the wildlife and environment of the country. Increasing e-waste recycling is essential.
    • Studies have shown that it’s 13 times cheaper to recover electronic components from recycled waste than it is to source new materials by extracting them from mines. These mines also operate largely in developing countries without labor or environmental protection.
    • The non-profit Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) helped develop recycling programs that diverts over 85 million tonnes of gadgets from landfills each year. This helps reduce the entrance of toxic chemicals into the environment.
    • For every 1 million cell phones that are recycled, 722 lbs of silver, 75 lbs of gold, 33 lbs of palladium, and 35,274 lbs of copper can be recovered. Recovering these precious elements, and avoiding having arsenic, lead, nickel, and cobalt leach into the environment, are why recycling makes such a difference.

    Recycling Your E-Waste in Edmonton

    Addressing E-Waste in Edmonton

    Edmonton’s North Saskatchewan River Valley is the largest section of urban parkland in North America. Protecting the environment in Edmonton is part of keeping this area as beautiful as it is, full of parks and the host of over 30 annual festivals throughout the year. The West Edmonton Mall, the largest in North America, spans the equivalent of 48 city blocks. The retail outlets and almost 1 million people generate a lot of electronic waste, and addressing that waste cycle is essential.

    How to Handle Business E-Waste in Edmonton

    The tens of thousands of businesses throughout the city generate a lot of electronic waste. Many consumer electronics are only kept two years before being disposed of, and business electronics are only kept a bit longer. This quick turnover means that a busy business owner is tempted to simply put electronics in the dumpster, especially if they aren’t aware what else to do. Quantum can help you make a difference by diverting electronics from the waste stream and allowing you to recycle the items you no longer need. Did you know that 90% of electronics components can be used in new products?

    Help Prevent Global Contamination By Recycling in Edmonton

    E-waste is sometimes sent illegally to developing countries, and the illicit waste trade affects human lives, economies, and the environment around the world. Primitive processes are used to try to remove the precious metals, which result in the exposure of workers to toxic chemicals. After the metals are removed, the rest is simply dumped, resulting in significant chemical contamination. When you recycle your residential or business e-waste here in Edmonton, you prevent contamination and exploitation around the world. The more electronics are recycled, the fewer greenhouse gases and toxic waste there are to pollute the environment.
