    Did you know?

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

    • Only 20% of e-waste is recycled properly each year, according to a report by the University of British Columbia. Companies like Quantum that help properly recycle electronics are working to change that.
    • On average, consumers keep cell phones only two years before they trade them in or throw them away. Pollutants from this e-waste affect the environment and accumulate in the body, leading to DNA damage and cancer.
    • If electronic materials are not recycled, the industry will face supply shortages in the next 10 years, causing costs to skyrocket.
    • Most of the minerals required for the production of new electronics are produced in developing countries, which do not have labor protections or regulations that minimize environmental damage.

    Recycling Your E-Waste in Vancouver

    Recycling Your E-Waste in Vancouver

    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.

    Handling Business E-Waste in Vancouver

    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.
