Did you know?

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

  • Many of the components in e-waste can be recycled and reused for materials. If the roughly 41 million computers thrown away each year were recycled instead, it would save enough energy to power about 150,000 homes for a year.
  • Connected devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) are one of the fastest-growing contributors to e-waste, with some 13 billion of these devices around the world in 2023.
  • Some e-waste disposal services don’t actually recycle electronics, but instead ship them to developing countries where they end up in landfills. It’s estimated that 23% of the electronic waste created in North America is sent to places like China, India, and Nigeria.
  • Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) has developed a global standard for the recycling and reuse of electronics. Quantum is certified by SERI, as well as similar organizations across Canada.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Abbotsford

Abbotsford is the largest city in British Columbia outside of the Vancouver metro area. It also has one of the most diverse economies in Canada, with agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, and retail industries all thriving in the city. That means an equally diverse array of electronics and devices being used throughout Abbotsford, and when those items get old or outdated, recycling this e-waste instead of throwing it away can keep significant quantities of trash out of landfills.

Recycling Computers in Abbotsford

Producing a new laptop or desktop computer uses a lot of natural resources. About 90% of the materials in one of these devices can be reused, however, and that dramatically reduces the amount of new materials that need to be made, saving our limited natural resources. Diverting electronics out of the waste stream also keeps the lead, mercury, and other potential toxins they contain from contaminating the soil, air, or water.

Recycling Smartphones in Abbotsford

There are millions of phones being used across Canada, and that number just keeps growing. Many people upgrade to the newest devices while their old phone still functions, which often means it can be refurbished and reused. Quantum’s data destruction services ensure these old phones don’t contain any lingering personal information, whether they’re being separated to extract their valuable metals and other materials, or passed on for a second life with a new user.

Business E-Waste Recycling in Abbotsford

Businesses need to update and replace their electronics about as often as an individual, but they have many more unwanted devices to dispose of after they do. Figuring out what to do with this e-waste can take time that busy company leaders simply don’t have. Quantum makes it easy for Abbotsford businesses to get rid of their electronic waste, with free pickup within 48 hours for 25 items or more as well as our drop-off locations.

The Global Impact of Recycling E-Waste in Abbotsford

Everything from televisions and gaming systems to power tools, printers, photocopiers, and kitchen appliances contain things like circuit boards, wires, cables, and batteries. When these are thrown away, they don’t just end up in a landfill right in the Abbotsford community. Often, this trash is shipped to developing countries, where it has a detrimental impact on their local environment. Certified recyclers like Quantum ensure this waste is handled safely, keeping the world a cleaner place for everyone.

Quantum Recycles All of Abbotsford’s E-Waste

Quantum’s manual and mechanical separation process ensures that reusable components are salvaged and any potentially harmful e-waste is dealt with following the proper safety precautions. We operate according to the standards of the Electronics Products Recycling Association and are R2 certified by Sustainable Electronics Recycling International.
