So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
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.
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.
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.
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 Their outdated computers and devices also often contain sensitive information about the business and its customers that shouldn’t fall into the wrong hands.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.
The environment in Canada isn’t the only area at risk when electronics are thrown away. Often, this electronic waste is shipped to developing nations, contributing to health problems and pollution in those communities. Bringing your old appliances and devices to one of Quantum’s locations keeps potentially hazardous e-waste from becoming a worldwide problem by recycling it safely right here in Canada.
Our mission at Quantum is to make unwanted electronics disappear the right way. As a certified and fully-audited electronics recycling company, you can trust the security and safety of our disposal process, whether you bring your devices to one of our locations or arrange a pickup for yourself, your business, or your community.
