So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
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 Oakville 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 Oakville 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.
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.
Currently, Oakville only offers recycling options for batteries and cell phones. There are five municipal collection sites located at:
1. Glen Abbey Community Centre at 1415 Third Line
2. Halton Regional Centre at 1151 Bronte Road
3. Iroquois Ridge Community Centre at 1015 Glenashton Drive
4. Oakville Public Library Central Branch at 120 Navy Street
5. Oakville Town Hall at 1225 Trafalgar Road
Quantum is well suited for all of your other end-of-life electronic recycling needs. Quantum can collect computers, printers, copiers, scanners, and other devices to make sure that e-waste doesn’t make its way into local landfills. Schedule a pickup and Quantum will retrieve your devices for free (25-item minimum), wipe any data left on them, and safely recycle each device. Recycling electronics is convenient and beneficial for the environment.
