Quantum is a fully audited electronics recycling company, compliant to the most stringent standards in the world. Our processes have been developed to minimize waste and maximize value and security. We operate state-of-the-art reuse and recycling systems that safely, securely and transparently break down your old equipment into its reusable components and recycled commodities.
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 Burnaby 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 Burnaby 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.
Burnaby is home to a rapidly-growing knowledge-based economy. Companies that specialize in information technology, wireless, biotechnology, life science, film, education, and environmental technology are at the core of Burnaby’s continued growth. Unfortunately, all of these technology-intensive fields yield significant amounts of e-waste.
Burnaby has one central Eco-Centre located at 4855 Still Creek Drive (west of Douglas Road). Residents are free* to drop off large volumes of materials. While batteries are accepted here, the Eco-Centre doesn’t accept e-waste.
Quantum can recycle electronics items. Simply schedule a free pick- up for lots of at least 25 pieces of electronics. The Quantum lifecycle makes sure that your devices are recycled safely and efficiently. Any data on your devices will be carefully destroyed, and you’ll help to keep e-waste from cluttering local landfills and leaching chemicals into local soils.
Several different entities, including the EPRA (Electronics Products Recycling Association), and NAID-Canada, recognize Quantum. Quantum engages in certified electronics recycling, meaning that it strictly adheres to accepted best practices. This strict adherence protects workers involved in recycling the electronics and prevents the release of potentially toxic substances during the recycling process
