So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
The beautiful green space in the greater Vancouver area is part of the reason it’s the 3rd most livable metro area in the world. Delta’s fertile land also makes it one of the region’s most important agricultural areas, so there’s more reason than one to protect the local landscape from the effects of hazardous waste. Recycling unwanted electronics is one easy way to reduce the amount of potentially toxic chemicals and materials that end up in a landfill.
Producing one laptop uses 190,000 liters of water and produces a third of a tonne of carbon dioxide, along with containing limited natural resources like copper, silver, gold, and cobalt. Desktop computers have a similar resource content, and there are also reusable components in accessories like printers, monitors, spare batteries and chargers, and peripherals like mice and keyboards. When you recycle broken or outdated computers, you help the environment in two ways: by keeping this waste out of a landfill, and by conserving resources to make new devices.
The materials inside a cell phone can be valuable, but so can the data that’s stored on it. Quantum’s Information Technology Asset Disposition (ITAD) program follows the standards set by NAID-Canada so you can trust that all the data stored on a smartphone will be securely destroyed when you recycle the device through us.
Many business owners want to recycle their unused devices but don’t know how to do it properly, and don’t have time in their busy schedules to research the recycling process fully. Quantum’s comprehensive electronics recycling program makes it easy for businesses to dispose of old computers, company phones, mainframes and server banks, or any of the other e-waste your company generates. We’ll even pick up these items free if you have 25 or more to recycle, and can pick them up for a small fee for smaller loads, so you don’t even need to bring them to a recycling center to reap the benefits.
Recycling your electronics has benefits that go beyond the Vancouver area. A lot of the e-waste generated in Canada gets shipped to developing countries, where it’s processed by underpaid workers who lack proper safety protections. When you bring your electronic waste to Quantum, it’s recycled responsibly with a complete mechanical and manual separation system to break it down into reusable components without exposing workers (or the environment) to potentially hazardous chemicals and materials.
Recycle BC has recently expanded the materials it will accept curbside, but that list still doesn’t include electronics and other e-waste. The good news is, you can still recycle these types of items for free at any of Quantum’s drop-off locations. From computers and hand-held devices to kitchen appliances and A/V equipment, our recycling program helps residents dispose of any unwanted electronics the right way.
