Kelowna recycling centers help to keep the environment clean and healthy so the region’s wine industry can keep thriving for years to come. As one of the largest electronic waste recyclers in Canada, Quantum can take care of all the unwanted devices that Kelowna’s residents send our way.
Computers contain a lot of materials that can be reused. Recycling laptops and desktops allows up to 90% of the glass, plastic, and precious metals they contain to be repurposed for the next generation of devices. It also prevents the potentially hazardous materials they contain, like lead and mercury, from leaching into the soil or water when these items are kept out of landfills.
Small electronics like cell phones make up a large portion of the electronic waste produced in Canada. A 2020 survey estimates there are more than 22 million unused phones gathering dust in Canadian homes. One reason people don’t recycle these devices is that they contain private data and information, along with their recyclable materials. Quantum provides data destruction services in addition to recycling services, so you can trust your personal information to be handled securely when you drop off your unused device to one of our locations.
The hundreds of technology, manufacturing, and other businesses in Kelowna have unique recycling needs. The amount of electronics a business needs to dispose of is often much higher than the average resident, and that can include bigger items like power tools, server banks, or industrial equipment that’s difficult to get to collection sites. This is why Quantum offers free pickup for large orders, making it easier for business owners in BC to dispose of their e-waste the right way.
Electronic waste is a growing problem across the planet, and the electronics thrown away in British Columbia don’t always end up in a landfill close to home.

Recycling these products with Quantum ensures they’re safely disposed of right here at home.
