Did you know?

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

  • E-waste around the world is more than 41.8 million tonnes, which represents tens of millions of dollars in potentially reusable resources. That’s why recycling is so important.
  • Recycling the 2,123,820 lbs of e-waste generated by the people in Oakville is a priority.
  • Recycling one million laptops saves enough energy to power 3600 average homes in North America for a year.
  • Since e-waste is highly toxic, many developed countries pay to ship end-of-life devices to third-world countries, generally in Asia and Africa. Shipping dangerous e-waste to countries without the infrastructure to properly deal with it amplifies the effect that e-waste has on the environment.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Oakville

Computer Recycling in Oakville

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 Oakville 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 Oakville

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 Oakville 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 Oakville with e-waste

Oakville is home to several unique industries, many falling under the life science sector. There is a local emphasis on pharmaceutical development and elder care, as well as a substantial digital media, ICT, and film industry. Many foreign companies have chosen to establish their Canadian headquarters in Oakville.

These advanced fields require lots of technological support. Unfortunately, that translates to a hefty amount of e-waste.

Currently, Oakville only offers recycling options for batteries and cell phones. There are five municipal collection sites located at:

1. Glen Abbey Community Centre at 1415 Third Line
2. Halton Regional Centre at 1151 Bronte Road
