Did you know?

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

  • The amount of e-waste generated worldwide is equivalent to throwing away 800 laptops every second.
  • There are hundreds of substances in electronics, including toxic chemicals and metals like mercury, arsenic, lead, selenium, and cadmium.
  • E-waste also includes valuable metals like gold, silver, palladium, and copper. If all the metals were recovered from the electronics discarded in Canada in 2019, they would be worth more than $57 billion.
  • The e-waste produced globally in 2020 is roughly equivalent to 350 cruise ships.

Recycling Your E-Waste in London

The average Canadian household has at least seven active connected devices, and roughly 38% of them also have unused electronics collecting dust in their homes. Recycling these items allows the materials in them to be reused, benefiting the environment along with decluttering your drawers and closets.

Computer Recycling in London, Ontario

Computers contain a lot of materials that shouldn’t end up in a landfill, from hazardous chemicals like mercury and lead to valuable metals and materials. The batteries in laptops are an especially big safety risk, causing explosions and fires when they’re disposed of improperly. Bringing your broken computers to a Quantum location, along with accessories like printers, cables, monitors, and other peripherals, saves energy and safeguards the environment.

Recycling Cell Phones in London, Ontario

There are more than 31 million smartphone users in Canada, and the average person gets a new phone every 1-2 years. Often, these phones are still functional and can be refurbished to extend their life, while broken phones still contain valuable circuit boards and materials that can be recycled and reused. Quantum’s cellphone collection service makes it easy to get rid of an old phone or charger the best possible way.

How Businesses in London, Ontario Recycle Their E-Waste

Manufacturing businesses, like those found across London, have unique needs when it comes to old equipment disposal. The unwanted things they have to dispose of are larger and heavier, for one thing. Their outdated computers and devices also often contain sensitive information about the business and its customers that shouldn’t fall into the wrong hands. Quantum’s certified data destruction services ensure that the information stored in business e-waste is handled as safely and securely as the devices themselves. We also offer on-site pickup for large orders, making it easier to get rid of heavy equipment.
