Did you know?

With more than 7,134,430 lbs of e-waste being generated in Mississauga annually, it is critical that your electronics are recycled in a safe and efficient manner.

  • The average CRT TV contains 5kg of lead – which can leach into ground water and cause neurological delays in children.
  • It’s not all bad though - E-waste is 100% recyclable and contains precious metals such as gold, silver and palladium.
  • Flat screen devices like LCD monitors and TVs contain mercury which contaminates water and accumulates in the environment.
  • Quantum ensures that these contaminants do not effect the environment by recycling your e-waste safely.

Recycling E-Waste in Mississauga

From life sciences to the aerospace industry, Mississauga’s 86,000 businesses are as diverse as they are progressive. But many local companies continue to dispose of their end-of-life electronics (e-waste) the wrong way because they’re unaware that safe and effective recycling options exist.

According to the OES (Ontario Electronic Stewardship), unwanted electronics represent the fastest-growing portion of our solid waste stream. But the good news is that some 90% of electronic component parts – like glass, plastics, and precious metals – can be recovered, reused, and made into new products.

Recycling your business e-waste correctly…

  • keeps it out of Peel Region landfills,
  • prevents it from being handled unsafely or exported illegally, and
  • helps move it back into the manufacturing supply chain

Some 60,000 metric tonnes of electronics were recycled in Ontario in 2016. And cities like Mississauga have the capacity to recycle dozens of office products safely – including your outdated phone systems, photocopiers, and desktop computers.

Computer Recycling in Mississauga

Laptop and desktop computers carry a high risk of data leaks, along with environmental hazards due to embedded batteries. When businesses need computer recycling services, it’s essential that the end-of-life assets are handled securely and in accordance with environmental regulations. We offer reuse and recycling services to help Mississauga businesses minimize their environmental impact and ensure compliance. At the same time, our certified data destruction services give you peace of mind in knowing any sensitive data is managed with the utmost level of security from the moment it leaves your facility.

Smartphone Recycling in Mississauga

Smartphones contain valuable materials including gold, silver, and lithium batteries. Without proper recycling, these resources go to waste. Furthermore, should they wind up in landfills, the lithium batteries in smartphones pose risks of fire and explosion. We work with Mississauga businesses and municipalities to make smartphone recycling convenient. Quantum is also fully certified, so you can rest assured any personal data is properly destroyed and your smartphones are recycled responsibly.

Quantum Can Help Your Mississauga Business Recycle

The EPRA (Electronic Products Recycling Association) oversees all of Canada’s regulated recycling programs. As an EPRA-certified recycling company, Quantum makes it easy to get rid of your business electronics the right way. From laptops to network servers, medical devices to point-of-sale equipment, our fast, secure, and convenient pickup service is available to businesses throughout Mississauga.

We disassemble your electronic materials safely to remove hazardous substances like lead and mercury, then recover valuable resources that can be re-used. Not only does Quantum guarantee any residual electronic data will be destroyed, we can often pick your items up from your business – and within 48 hours of hearing from you.
