Quantum is a fully audited electronics recycling company, compliant to the most stringent standards in the world. Our processes have been developed to minimize waste and maximize value and security. We operate state-of-the-art reuse and recycling systems that safely, securely and transparently break down your old equipment into its reusable components and recycled commodities.
So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
The embedded batteries in laptop computers make them a significant environmental hazard in landfills, even aside from the risks of the data contained on their harddrive. Disposing of a desktop computer doesn’t just include the tower but also accessories like the mouse, monitor, cables, and desktop computer speakers. Our reuse and recycling program helps businesses in Red Deer minimize their risk and environmental impact when disposing of computer electronics, with data destruction services as well as electronics recycling services.
Every cell phone contains valuable materials like gold and silver. They also contain lithium batteries, LCD screens, and other components that can release harmful chemicals in a landfill. With more than 31 million smartphone users in Canada, that’s a lot of potentially toxic waste. Quantum makes it convenient for business and people in Red Deer to get these devices to the proper waste management facility, and are fully certified in personal data destruction so you can trust both the materials and the information these devices contain to be handled safely.
Positioned on the corridor between Edmonton and Calgary, Red Deer is a mid-sized city along the Queen Elizabeth II Highway, one of the busiest and most important economic corridors in Alberta. This ready access to transportation makes it one of the best locations for entrepreneurs in Canada. There’s also plenty of entertainment for residents to enjoy, from beautiful Bower Ponds to museums like the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame. That means lots of action for the city’s waste management facility, too, to keep up with the e-waste it generates.
Business owners have plenty to think about without adding electronics waste to their list. Unfortunately, unwanted and outdated electronics are a hassle to store on-site, and finding information on how to dispose of them properly can be a challenge. The good news is, up to 90% of these devices can be repurposed, reused, or otherwise diverted from landfills. Taking advantage of Quantum’s electronics recycling program helps businesses protect the environment and control costs of storing and disposing of old equipment.
From tablets, laptops, and cell phones to video games, smart toys, and televisions, the range of devices with built-in batteries and electronic components is wider than ever before. Quantum makes it easy to recycle a variety of electronics in Alberta. Our pick-up service is free for companies with 25 items or more, and can be ordered for a small fee for fewer items. We’re proud to operate within the guidelines of recycling initiatives from the EPRA and NAID-Canada, providing trustworthy electronics disposal for both businesses and individuals.
Canada is the biggest producer of waste per capita in the world, generating 10 tonnes more per capita than the United States. Taking advantage of Quantum’s electronics recycling program can help reverse this trend and keep the air and water in Red Deer and across Alberta clean and healthy for all the life that needs it.
