So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
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.
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.
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.
Lethbridge started as a coal mining and agriculture hub, but it’s become an industrial center for southern Alberta. The machines, materials, and equipment used by manufacturers and other industrial businesses is a major contributor to e-waste in the province. Thanks to Quantum’s e-waste pickup service, companies can easily and safely dispose of outdated machine parts, materials like wires and bulbs, and other potentially hazardous waste, before it can impact the health of the community.
Cell phones and computers aren’t the only contributors to e-waste. A wide variety of items fall into this category, from electronics accessories like printers and routers to IoT devices and kitchen appliances like microwaves and coffee makers. Quantum can recycle any smart device you’re not using anymore, whether you call us for pick-up or drop it off on-site at one of our Lethbridge locations or events.
It’s not just your local area that’s affected when electronics and devices are thrown out. Often, this e-waste is shipped to developing nations, turning Alberta’s trash into a global problem. When you use the electronics recycling services in your community, you can help create a cleaner world for everyone.
