Quantum can help Airdrie with e-waste

Airdrie is growing rapidly as large and small businesses hone in on this thriving regional hub. Airdrie is located at a critical junction, well poised for the influx of national and multi-national companies that are responsible for strong growth in the construction, transportation and logistics, and manufacturing sectors. As more people move here (between 4-5% population increases every year), so do their devices, contributing to an increasing amount of e-waste generated within the city. Airdrie’s particularly young demographic will create tons of e-waste.
