So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
Vancouver is ranked as the 10th cleanest city and the 3rd most livable place in the world. Residents enjoy Stanley Park and the many other green spaces that make Vancouver great. However, businesses in Vancouver have to think about how they can help handle and recycle the large amount of e-waste generated in the city. With five renowned universities and a strong immigrant population, the demand for electronics will only grow over time. The good news is that 90% of electronics components, including glass, plastic, gold, silver, copper, and palladium, can be recycled and made into new products.
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 Vancouver 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 Vancouver 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.
Electronics recycling at work doesn’t have to be difficult, but many Vancouver businesses don’t know how to access information about how it’s done. As a busy business owner, you may not have time to research the recycling process to find the safest and most effective options. However, just throwing them in the trash isn’t a good choice – electronic leak toxic elements like mercury and lead, which are harmful to both humans and the environment.
Quantum is proud to be a globally certified, R2 accredited and EPRA-certified recycler in Vancouver. We offer pickup within 48 hours for businesses with at least 25 items for pickup, and we offer pickup for a moderate price for fewer items.

When you use Quantum, you can have complete confidence that your recycling is done in a way that makes the biggest possible difference.

British Columbia has a Return-It Electronics program available throughout the province. Residents can drop off TVs, computers, stereos, VCRs, camera, telephones, and other electronic devices at designated collection sites without charge. You can also dispose of appliances, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, tools, electronic toys, medical devices and more. Before you turn in your devices, be sure to erase any personal information they contain. When you choose to recycle these devices rather than simply throwing them out, you’re making a tremendous difference in both Vancouver and for our planet overall.
