The electronic waste problem in Saguenay

Saguenay has a population of 145,965, who generate 1,459,650 lbs of e-waste every year.
Built along the Saguenay River, the unique fjord and three national parks nearby make Saguenay a popular adventure tourism and ecotourism destination, and proper disposal of e-waste helps to maintain this natural beauty.
The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region is known as the Valley of Aluminum, with a third of all aluminum produced in Canada coming from Saguenay’s refineries.

Did you know?

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

  • E-waste contains valuable materials like gold, silver, copper, nickel, and palladium, roughly 90% of which can be recovered through proper recycling.
  • Roughly 27% of Canada’s electronic waste was recycled in 2019–a big increase from the 12% recycled in 2009, but 73% still ends up in landfills.
  • Hazardous materials like cadmium that are found in batteries can accumulate in the soil and water when they’re not properly disposed of.
  • Roughly 130 million cell phones are thrown away annually. Recycling them instead would save enough energy to power 24,000 homes for a year.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Saguenay

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.

Recycling Computers in Saguenay

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.

Recycling Cell Phones in Saguenay

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.

Handling Business E-Waste in Saguenay

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.

Quantum: Saguenay’s Go-To Electronics Recyclers

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.

When Saguenay Residents Recycle, the World Benefits

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.
