If you aren't up-to-date on the latest recycling facts, you are sure to be shocked by the countless tons we're putting to waste.
More than 26,000 business operate in Kanata alongside the 117,000 citizens that call the beautiful community home. However, there’s one big issue that’s impacting the economy and environment at large, and it’s something Kanata is just beginning to tackle.
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 Kanata 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 Kanata 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.
With the number of cell phones in the world outpacing the human population, there is no denying that e-waste has become a tremendous issue everywhere. However, those in Kanata are especially capable of making a huge positive impact.
Kanata is among the largest suburbs in Ottawa and has a rapidly growing population. By adopting the right mindset about e-waste now and sharing knowledge about its importance, Kanata is on the verge of inspiring new and old generations alike to take responsibility for the electronics we no longer want or need.
Looking to make a difference in the community? Kanata is not lacking e-waste recycling programs. Rather, like many cities in Canada, residents and businesses in Kanata are simply facing an information gap. Many people and businesses still don’t realize the importance of e-waste recycling. Many think it doesn’t even matter while many others don’t realize programs already exist in the area to take care of your end-of-life electronics responsibly.
Less than 12.5% of the e-waste we produce actually gets recycled. That leaves a massive amount of e-waste being directed to landfills and incinerators every year, and it’s taking a toll on our environments and economies across the nation and beyond. All it takes is one city, even one Kanata resident, to make a calculable impact.
Over 90% of the components in the average electronic device can be recovered and used to make new items, whether the plastic gets recycled into a park bench for the local playground or the precious metals are extracted for jewelry or automotive parts. Every item that is recycled means a healthier environment and a stronger economy.
Are you looking to make a positive impact as a business owner in Kanata? Kick off an inspiring trend by scheduling an e-waste pickup from Quantum. Not only will you know that your hazardous waste is being handled properly, you’ll also be confident that any data on your devices will be safely and permanently destroyed in the process.
