So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
With its location in the Valley of Aluminum, Saguenay knows a thing or two about the importance of protecting natural resources. Recycling old electronics allows the materials they contain to be reused, helping to keep the environment across Quebec as beautiful in the future as it is today.
It takes a lot of resources to produce even one computer. There are more than 30 different minerals in every desktop or laptop, and roughly 1.5 tons of water and 530 pounds of fossil fuels are used to produce the average computer and monitor. When you recycle an old device, much of the copper, nickel, and other valuable resources in it can be repurposed for new products, and that’s a big help in reducing the environmental footprint of each computer that’s put into use.
One unique thing about smartphones is that they’re often replaced before they break. The average user gets a new phone every couple of years, and recycling the old one allows it to be refurbished and reused to extend its life. Phones that are broken can be a fire hazard in landfills since the lithium battery built-in to these devices can explode in the wrong conditions. This is why you should recycle old phones instead, regardless of their condition.
Businesses have a lot on their plates already, and Quantum aims to make it easy for them to dispose of unwanted electronics. We offer free pickup services for large loads and electronics so your company won’t need to think about how to transport old devices to our facilities. In addition, our data destruction services ensure any information contained on business computers or phones is dealt with as securely as the devices themselves.
E-waste is a broad category that includes more than just phones and computers. There are an increasing number of connected devices and electronics in the average home. An unwanted scanner, printer, speaker system, or gaming console contains the same mix of valuable and hazardous materials as other electronics, and needs to be disposed of in a similar way. Whatever type of appliance or device you have to get rid of, Quantum can help you do it safely and securely with our comprehensive electronics recycling program.
Canada is one of the largest producers of electronic waste in the world, and that’s not just Canada’s problem. When e-waste goes to a landfill, it’s often shipped to developing nations for processing, contributing to pollution and health problems for people in those communities. Quantum uses state-of-the-art recycling processes to safely break down old devices right here at home, creating jobs that boost the local economy while preventing environmental destruction elsewhere in the world.
