Did you know?

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

  • The volume of electronic waste produced worldwide grew by 21% from 2014-2019. The United Nations predicts this trend will continue and that e-waste will double in 16 years.
  • One ton of circuit boards contains between 40 and 800 times more gold than one metric ton of ore.
  • Old tube TV sets and cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors contain 4-8 pounds of lead, a neurotoxin that can disrupt childhood mental development in even low doses.
  • It is estimated that 50%-70% of the heavy metals in landfills come from discarded electronics.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Leduc

Leduc’s location just south of Edmonton gives it a bigger role in Alberta’s economy than you might expect from its population. It’s on the CANAMEX Trade Corridor and a transportation hub for Alberta’s oil and gas industry, as well as the more than 1,400 businesses in Leduc Business Park. All of those businesses can also generate a lot of e-waste when they upgrade their machinery and computer systems, on top of the electronics disposed of by residents. Quantum’s electronics disposal programs ensure all of these items are recycled properly.

Recycling Computers in Leduc

A lot of materials and components go into making a computer, from the glass used in monitors to gold and other precious metals. Laptops and tablets also have built-in lithium batteries, while older desktop monitors contain lead, and these and other components can release hazardous chemicals into the environment if they end up in landfills. Recycling computers instead allows the valuable materials to be recovered, and keeps the hazardous ones from impacting the environment.

Recycling Cell Phones in Leduc

Just like computers, smartphones are made using a wealth of materials that can be extracted and recycled for new devices. They also contain highly toxic materials like lead, mercury, and cadmium that pose a health risk if they end up in soil or ground water, a big risk when cell phones are thrown out with the trash. Quantum works with businesses and communities across Leduc to make recycling smartphones convenient, so you can rest easy knowing your unwanted devices are being disposed of safely.

Handling Business E-Waste in Leduc

Businesses generate a significant percentage of the world’s electronic waste. This is largely because they use more devices than the typical household, and may have dozens of computers, printers, fax machines, or other electronics to dispose of after upgrading outdated equipment. Quantum takes the hassle out of business electronics recycling with our 48-hour pickup for loads of 25 or more devices. Just as important, our data destruction services are designed in accordance with the National Association for Information Destruction, so you don’t have to worry about sensitive or proprietary information on these devices falling into the wrong hands.

Quantum Can Help Recycle Leduc E-Waste

Computers and handheld devices aren’t the only electronics we use everyday. Kitchen appliances like microwaves and coffee makers also contain both valuable metals and potentially toxic materials, and so does audio-visual equipment like speakers and receivers, or entertainment like gaming systems and DVD players. Leduc’s residents can drop off all of these unwanted, old devices free of charge at any Quantum collection site.

Make a Global Impact Right Here in Leduc

Many of the electronics thrown away in Canada don’t just end up in local landfills. Often, they’re shipped to developing countries, where they’re processed by underpaid workers who lack proper safety equipment, in addition to polluting their environment. This means trusting Quantum with your electronics recycling needs can help keep air and water cleaner around the world.
