Recycling Your E-Waste in Lethbridge

In 2019, Lethbridge became the fourth city in Alberta to exceed a population of 100,000 people. That growth is a positive thing for the local economy, but it also means even more TVs, cell phones, and other devices are being used in the city than ever before. Knowing the right way to dispose of these electronics can prevent them from adding to Canada’s growing e-waste problem.

Recycling Computers in Lethbridge

The metals, glass, and other components inside old computers don’t need to go to waste. Recycling lets these be repurposed, conserving our finite natural resources. Other computer parts can be highly hazardous if taken to landfills. Laptop batteries leach lithium into the environment, and monitors contain compounds like lead that can damage the environment. Proper recycling keeps the natural environment around Lethbridge beautiful for future generations to enjoy.

Recycling Cell Phones in Lethbridge

Almost everybody has a smartphone these days, and the average person replaces their phone every 1-2 years. Those old devices, as well as the batteries, screens, wires, and other parts they contain, are a significant contributor to Canada’s e-waste problem. The data contained on phones can cause a different kind of harm if it falls into the wrong hands. People in Lethbridge can protect both their privacy and the environment by bringing their phones to one of Quantum’s local dropoff locations.
