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.

That means lots of action for the city’s waste management facility, too, to keep up with the e-waste it generates.
