    Did you know?

    Chances are, you have a handful of electronics in your business that you're going to upgrade at some point in the future. Unfortunately, many people make the wrong decision when deciding how to dispose of them.

    • Around 85% of the world's e-waste that gets sent to landfills and incinerators is burned, which releases harmful toxins into the air we breathe.
    • Electronic devices contain lead, which is highly toxic and can cause damage to our kidneys and central nervous system.
    • Low-level exposure to lead can affect a child's mental health and development, which makes proper disposal and recycling a must.
    • LCD monitors and televisions are among the most hazardous electronics along with plasma TVs, modern TVs, and computers that use Cathode Ray Tubes.

    Recycling your e-waste in Markham

    Every city across Canada is producing electronic waste, but as a growing center of foreign investment and the home of more than 329,000 citizens, Markham largely contributes to the huge amount of e-waste our country puts out every year. Unfortunately, only about 12.5% of our e-waste actually ends up being recycled, so what needs to change?

    Educating Markham About E-Waste

    Just like in other regions, citizens and businesses in Markham lack information about the production of e-waste and how essential it is that we take the time to recycle our old electronic devices. Since billions of tons of end-of-life electronics go to landfills every year, education is a huge factor in helping to divert these electronics away from landfills and back to factories where their components can be recovered.

    Most people don’t realize it, but about 90% of the components of an electronic device can be recovered and recycled into something new, cutting down on waste, improving the environment, and helping to pump up our economy. It’s really a win-win situation for everyone!

    E-Waste Recycling in Markham

    The problem isn’t really a lack of e-waste recycling programs in Markham because they do exist. The issue is that many people and businesses simply don’t know about them. Finding out drop-off locations and even getting into a program that enables you to schedule pick-ups for a business’ electronics are important next steps that enable every citizen of Markham to do their part.

    Together, the Markham community can actually make a huge difference by taking e-waste recycling seriously thanks to the sheer number of residents in the area that are using electronics on a daily basis and regularly purchasing new units as they are released to the market. Spreading the word and finding ways to lend a hand are two relatively simple steps that can make a tremendous difference to the economy and environment at large.

    Why Businesses Should Get Involved

    Businesses are some of the key producers of electronics. Whether it’s printers, phones, computers, or other equipment, these are all things that can and should be recycled. When businesses reach out to a trusted and local recycling program like Quantum, they are able to trust that not only the hazardous materials will be handled safely, but also that any data on their devices will be confidentially and permanently destroyed.

    If you’re a business in the Markham area, you can actually schedule a pickup of your e-waste!
