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 Richmond 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 Richmond 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.
Richmond’s series of islands support over 14,000 different businesses—from agri-foods to aviation companies, logistics to manufacturing. It is one of the most enterprising cities, carefully fostering economic development that has attracted companies from around the world to Richmond. This growth has also contributed to a rise in e-waste.
Residents and business operators are permitted to drop off one cubic yard of recyclables and three large appliances at the Richmond Recycling Depot each day. Batteries, electronics, and most other types of materials are accepted by the facility to reach Richmond’s goal of diverting 80% of waste from the landfill by 2020.
The Richmond Recycling Depot is located at 5555 Lynas Lane, Richmond, BC. It is closed on Mondays.
