Did you know?

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

  • In 2021, 341 million computers and almost 1.5 billion smartphones were sold around the world, a figure that’s expected to grow by about 8% per year.
  • Electronic devices sent to landfills release harmful chemicals into the environment, including carcinogens like cadmium, and lead, which can cause damage to the nervous system and kidneys.
  • Computers, phones, and servers can also contain sensitive data, making improper disposal a potential security risk as well as a health hazard. Quantum’s Information Technology Asset Disposition services ensure secure data destruction along with proper recycling of the electronics that contain it.
  • E-waste also includes home entertainment equipment like TV sets, more than 20 million of which are thrown into landfills every year.

Considering about 1 in 3 Canadian households has at least one unwanted computer, phone, or other device to dispose of, that’s a lot of e-waste that could end up in a landfill. Quantum’s electronics recycling services ensure these items are disposed of properly to keep the Okotoks community safe.

According to one recent estimate, some 3 million smartphones are thrown away in Canada every year. That number is only likely to grow as residents upgrade to the newest devices.

E-Waste Recycling for Businesses in Okotoks

Businesses tend to replace their electronics more often than the average consumer, and they have more of them to upgrade when they do. This makes businesses a significant contributor to the e-waste problem, producing as much as 80% of the world’s electronic waste, according to some estimates. Quantum makes it easy for a company to safely dispose of its unwanted electronics with our scheduled pickup service.

What Should You Look For in an E-Waste Recycling Service?

Some e-waste disposal companies don’t actually provide recycling services. Instead, they ship this waste to developing countries in Asia and Africa, where it becomes a health hazard for local residents and pollutes the environment. This is why it’s crucial to choose a certified and responsible company when you’re disposing of e-waste, ensuring it won’t simply end up in a different landfill half a world away.

Quantum Recycles E-Waste for All Okotoks Residents

Phones and computers aren’t the only electronics that can be hazardous if thrown away. Televisions, gaming systems, and kitchen appliances also contain circuit boards, batteries, and other materials and components that shouldn’t end up in a landfill.
