  • According to one estimate from the United Nations, the value of precious metals thrown away in e-waste worldwide totals more than $60 billion.
  • Along with valuable materials, electronics contain harmful chemicals, including toxins known as dioxin-related compounds (DRCs) that can accumulate in the tissues of the body, leading to long-term health concerns.
  • It’s estimated that 80% of Candians currently have unused electronics that are ready to be recycled, a significant increase from the 43% reported in 2019.

Computer Recyclers in Chilliwack

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.

Recycling Smartphones in Chilliwack

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.

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.

When Chilliwack Residents Recycle E-Waste, the World Benefits

Quantum’s manual and mechanical separation process is R2 certified, and conducted according to EPRA standards, right here in Canada.
