Did you know?

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

  • E-waste around the world is more than 41.8 million tonnes, which represents tens of millions of dollars in potentially reusable resources. That’s why recycling is so important.
  • Recycling the 2,123,820 lbs of e-waste generated by the people in Oakville is a priority.
  • Recycling one million laptops saves enough energy to power 3600 average homes in North America for a year.
  • Since e-waste is highly toxic, many developed countries pay to ship end-of-life devices to third-world countries, generally in Asia and Africa. Shipping dangerous e-waste to countries without the infrastructure to properly deal with it amplifies the effect that e-waste has on the environment.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Oakville

Quantum can help Oakville with e-waste

Oakville is home to several unique industries, many falling under the life science sector. There is a local emphasis on pharmaceutical development and elder care, as well as a substantial digital media, ICT, and film industry. Many foreign companies have chosen to establish their Canadian headquarters in Oakville.

These advanced fields require lots of technological support. Unfortunately, that translates to a hefty amount of e-waste.
