    Did you know?

    In our world of consumerism, a lot of what we make goes to waste when it could be recycled into something brand new.

    • The world generates about 40 million tons of e-waste every single year. That's equivalent to trashing around 800 laptops every single second of the day.
    • The average cellphone user will buy a new phone every 18 months. Very few people recycle their electronic devices, often due to not being aware of their options.
    • Of all of the world's toxic waste, e-waste makes up about 70% of it and the numbers continue to grow as more electronic devices are developed and sold on the market.
    • Unfortunately, only 12.5% of e-waste is currently being recycled. The rest ends up in landfills where it can harm the environment.

    Recycling your e-waste in Hamilton

    Over half a million citizens call Hamilton home along with more than 14,500 businesses. Together, these residents produce a lot of e-waste, and it isn’t being properly managed. Although the economy is booming, disposing of electronic waste can prove a difficult task for both companies and citizens in the area.

    How Do I Recycle My Business E-Waste in Hamilton?

    While Hamilton is pushing the region ahead with its staggering growth rates, like many other areas in Ontario, the metropolis still lacks awareness of the massive e-waste issue. Finding a safe and effective program to dispose of your end-of-life electronics is key. However, while such programs exist, many people simply don’t know why they should use them, or even where to find them. Businesses also lack this information and decide to dispose of their electronics in other ways. Unfortunately, that’s costing our economy and our environment.

    Of all the electronics that your business deals with, did you know that over 90% of their components can actually be recycled and reused successfully? That’s far more than the average person thinks. It all comes down to the extremely valuable steel, glass, plastic, aluminum, and copper that can be found inside the average electronic device. Even precious metals like gold, silver, and palladium can be received when you recycle your electronics.

    What to Look for in a Recycler

    If you are looking to recycle the electronics that your business no longer needs, go ahead and stick with a company that’s based in the local region. Quantum can assist you. As a globally certified organization, Quantum follows the best practices for handling electronic devices and is recognized by a number of different initiatives, like the OES, EPRA, and NAID-Canada.

    The correct handling of your electronics is important, and that’s why you can’t put them into the hands of just anyone. When you choose to use a reputable recycler like Quantum, you’ll have confidence that hazardous materials will be handled safely and any data will be permanently and safely destroyed.

    The Impact of E-Waste Recycling

    In the past 15 years, the e-waste recycling programs that have been established in Canada have managed to divert over 955,000 tons of electronics from landfills and back to factories where they can be processed and recovered. The result is a meaningful impact on our environment and community here in Hamilton and beyond.

    If you would like to recycle your electronics, reach out to Quantum today.
