The historic town of Lévis enjoys panoramic views of the St. Lawrence River, as well as serving as a prominent industrial center. Balancing that thriving business landscape against protecting the natural environment can be a tall order. Lévis residents and businesses can help by recycling their unwanted devices with Quantum, allowing the precious materials they contain to be repurposed into new items rather than contributing to the pollution problem in a landfill.
More resources go into producing a computer than most people realize. A study from United Nations University found it takes around 1.8 tons of raw materials to produce one laptop. Among those resources are valuable, reusable metals like gold, copper, and aluminum, as well as harmful substances like mercury, chromium, and lead. Recyclers ensure the recovery of the valuable components, while keeping the toxic ones from polluting the air, soil, and water.
The average smartphone user gets a new phone every 1-2 years. With nearly 32 million cell phones in use across Canada, that’s a lot of unwanted electronics to dispose of, along with their accessories like charger cords, batteries, and headphones. Phone batteries in particular are a problem, prone to causing issues like fires and explosions when thrown in landfills. You can prevent these problems by recycling your old phone with Quantum.
Businesses need to update their equipment as often as individual consumers, and frequently have a greater number of devices to replace when they do. Disposing of these products is further complicated by the sensitive information that’s often stored on company devices. Quantum’s business recycling program is designed to meet all of these needs. We provide pickup collection for companies with a lot of electronics to recycle, while our data destruction services ensure any sensitive information stored on them is disposed of as securely as the devices themselves.
