Did you know?

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

  • A 2016 report from the University of British Columbia shows Canadians generate 725,000 tonnes of e-waste every year, and only 20% of it is recycled properly on average.
  • E-waste only represents about 2% of the trash in landfills, but produces 70% of the toxic waste they produce.
  • Producing one computer monitor requires 530 pounds of fossil fuel and 1.5 tons of water. By recycling 1 million laptops, it saves the energy equivalent of what 3,657 homes use in a year.
  • E-waste contains hundreds of substances, including toxic ones like mercury, selenium, cadmium, and arsenic, which are released into the air, water, and soil when it’s sent to landfills and incinerators.

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.

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.

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.
