Did you know?

So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.

  • Electronic waste is increasing in Canada, from roughly 8.3 kilograms per person in 2000 to more than 25 kilograms per person in 2020.
  • An estimated 5.3 billion mobile phones became waste in 2022, only a fraction of which were properly recycled.
  • Small electronics like cell phones make up 38% of e-waste, with other significant contributors including large electronics (20%) and air conditioners (17%).
  • Around 80% of electronic waste is shipped to developing nations, where it’s often processed using unsafe practices that expose the workers and environment to toxic chemicals.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Gatineau

Visitors flock to Gatineau for its parks and natural beauty. Proper e-waste disposal helps to maintain the landscape of the region by keeping the hazardous materials contained in old electronics out of landfills and making full use of their recyclable resources. From handheld devices to appliances, home theater systems, computers, and manufacturing equipment, Quantum takes care of all of Gatineau’s electronics recycling needs.

Computer Recycling in Gatineau

Roughly 4 out of 5 households in Canada had at least one computer in 2021, and that number has been steadily growing. The materials like gold, silver, copper, and palladium used in laptops and desktops can be extracted and reused when they’re properly recycled. If not, the lithium in laptop batteries, lead in computer monitors, and other hazardous compounds can be released into the environment. This is why it’s so crucial for people to recycle their own computers, along with accessories like printers and keyboards, at a reputable e-waste recycling center like Quantum.

Recycling Smartphones in Gatineau

Many of the more than 3 million cell phones that are disposed of across Canada each year aren’t actually broken. Instead, they’re just old or outdated, making them prime candidates for refurbishing and reuse. Even broken phones can have value thanks to the glass, plastic, and metals like aluminum and copper they contain. We help Gatineau’s residents recycle their phones the right way to prevent these valuable materials from going to waste.

Handling Business E-Waste Recycling in Gatineau

E-waste recycling is often more complicated for businesses than individuals. For one thing, companies often have more and larger items to dispose of. These devices also frequently contain sensitive data and proprietary information. Quantum addresses both of these concerns. For large orders, we can arrange a free pickup to take this electronic waste off your hands. We also offer data destruction services to ensure that everything contained on devices and drives is disposed of as securely as the electronic itself.

How E-Cycling in Quebec Makes a Global Impact

When you throw out electronics, they don’t always end up in a landfill in Canada. Often, this waste is shipped elsewhere in the world, often to developing areas of Africa and Asia, where it’s processed by workers who lack proper safety protection and contributes to a growing global pollution problem. You can prevent this by recycling your electronics with a reputable company like Quantum that disposes of all types of e-waste in a safe, socially-responsible way.

Quantum’s E-Waste Recycling Process 

Our recycling process at Quantum has been developed over 30 years of experience in this sector. We operate state-of-the-art recycling and reuse systems that are EPRA certified and compliant with the most stringent industry standards for electronic disposal. Whether you arrange an on-site pickup or drop off your electronics at our e-waste recycling plant or one of our collection events, you can trust that any item you give us will be disposed of safely.
