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 Edmonton 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 Edmonton 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.
Edmonton’s North Saskatchewan River Valley is the largest section of urban parkland in North America. Protecting the environment in Edmonton is part of keeping this area as beautiful as it is, full of parks and the host of over 30 annual festivals throughout the year. The West Edmonton Mall, the largest in North America, spans the equivalent of 48 city blocks. The retail outlets and almost 1 million people generate a lot of electronic waste, and addressing that waste cycle is essential.
The tens of thousands of businesses throughout the city generate a lot of electronic waste. Many consumer electronics are only kept two years before being disposed of, and business electronics are only kept a bit longer. This quick turnover means that a busy business owner is tempted to simply put electronics in the dumpster, especially if they aren’t aware what else to do. Quantum can help you make a difference by diverting electronics from the waste stream and allowing you to recycle the items you no longer need. Did you know that 90% of electronics components can be used in new products?
Businesses like Quantum can give you the electronics recycling solution you’re looking for. We are a globally-certified, R2 accredited and EPRA-certified recycler in Edmonton. We help businesses dispose of electronics quickly and easily by providing pickup within 48 hours for companies with more than 25 items to recycle. We can also arrange pickup of fewer items for a small fee. Quantum proudly operates in accordance with Canadian recycling initiatives including EPRA (Electronics Products Recycling Association), OES (Ontario Electronic Stewardship) and NAID-Canada (National Association for Information Destruction).
E-waste is sometimes sent illegally to developing countries, and the illicit waste trade affects human lives, economies, and the environment around the world. Primitive processes are used to try to remove the precious metals, which result in the exposure of workers to toxic chemicals. After the metals are removed, the rest is simply dumped, resulting in significant chemical contamination. When you recycle your residential or business e-waste here in Edmonton, you prevent contamination and exploitation around the world. The more electronics are recycled, the fewer greenhouse gases and toxic waste there are to pollute the environment.
