As a hub of agricultural production for Canada, Ladner has extra motivation to keep its air, water, and soil free of pollutants. Recycling your unwanted computers, phones, appliances, and other electronic equipment is an easy way to help safeguard the environment and maintain the natural resources that make Ladner such a great place to live and work.
There are a lot of materials involved in making laptops and computers. Monitors and screens contain glass and plastic, as well as potentially hazardous material like lead. The computers themselves use metal such as gold, silver, mercury, and copper, while laptop batteries use nickel and lithium. Many of these materials can damage the environment if they end up in landfills, but can be reused in new devices through proper electronics recycling.
Most residents of Ladner use smartphones in 2023, and often get a new one every couple of years. That leaves a lot of unwanted cell phones that are either thrown away or shoved into the back of a drawer, along with the old chargers and cords that came with them. Quantum can give these old items new life, refurbishing cell phones that are still functional and breaking down broken phones to repurpose their valuable materials in new products.
As a business owner, you don’t want to trust just anyone with your old electronics. An unused company device often contains sensitive data or proprietary information that you don’t want other people to access. This is where Quantum’s data destruction services can be valuable. We safely dispose of everything on the electronics we recycle, including the documents and data stored on drives. Along with this, we offer free pickup collection for companies with a large amount of electronics to dispose of, saving you the hassle and expense of bringing your e-waste to a dropoff location.
One of the most common questions people have about e-waste is what things are included in this category. The truth is, cell phones and computers are just the tip of the iceberg. From other devices like TVs and tablets to office equipment like a printer or fax machine, Quantum recycles a wide variety of electronic waste. If you have an unwanted item with plugs or a screen, bring it to one of our locations to make sure it’s disposed of the right way.
Taking electronics to a landfill doesn’t just affect the environment and health of people here in British Columbia.
