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