Surrounded by lakes and mountains, Chilliwack’s fertile land and natural beauty make it a wonderful place to live, work, or visit. Reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills helps to keep the entire Fraser Valley environment clean and healthy so people can keep enjoying the many outdoor activities around Chilliwack for years to come.
There are a lot of things in laptops and desktop computers that shouldn’t be thrown away. Some of these are valuable metals like gold and copper, while others are hazardous chemicals like flame retardants, or materials like lead and lithium. Recycling computers along with accessories like monitors, laptop batteries, and chargers ensures the useful components don’t go to waste, and keeps the toxic ones from contaminating the air, soil, and water.
Cell phone use has risen sharply across Canada over the past decade, and the average user replaces their phone about every two years. Often, these older phones still work fine, and can be refurbished to extend their usable life. Broken phones, meanwhile, can be a fire hazard in landfills since their batteries can explode in the wrong conditions. Proper disposal of smartphones with a certified electronics recycler is the best way to get the full use from these devices.
Finding information about recycling services isn’t always easy, and business owners don’t have tons of spare time for research. Quantum makes recycling unwanted electronics easy with pickup service as well as drop-off locations. We also know that the data stored on unused devices can be just as valuable as their materials, and presents a different kind of hazard if it falls into the wrong hands. This is why we offer data destruction services, as well as electronics recycling, so business owners can rest easy when they trust us with their device disposal.
It’s illegal to export trash to other countries, but that doesn’t stop everyone from doing it. Electronic waste is particularly prone to being shipped to developing nations, where it’s processed in unsafe conditions and pollutes the local environment. Quantum’s manual and mechanical separation process is R2 certified, and conducted according to EPRA standards, right here in Canada.
Smartphones and computers aren’t the only electronics in the average Chilliwack household. A growing variety of devices contain circuit boards, chips, and other electronic components, from kitchen appliances like microwaves to wearable devices in the IoT to entertainment equipment like TVs, sound systems, and game consoles. Whatever unused devices you have sitting around your home, Quantum can get it off your hands the right way.
