So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
Sherbrooke has evolved from a manufacturing center, and is today better known for the region’s beautiful mountains and lakes than for its industry. There is still a thriving industrial core in the city, however, including plants producing parts for electronic devices. Recycling old devices is one way to reduce the environmental impact of these products, and protect the environment, not just here in Quebec, but across Canada.
A broken laptop may seem like trash, but the materials they contain are more valuable than many people realize. From the glass used in screens to the gold and other metals in computer chips, there are a lot of limited resources in computers that can be repurposed when they’re recycled. Recycling also keeps things like mercury and lead that are contained in laptops and desktops from contaminating the soil and water, which is a risk when these devices are thrown in a landfill.
Cell phones contain a lot of the same potentially valuable materials as computers. Their built-in batteries are also a fire risk when they’re thrown away, and contain things like lithium and nickel that can be reused, as well. The information stored on old cell phones is another concern for many people, and a big reason why these devices often end up gathering dust in drawers. Quantum’s data destruction services ensure that private information is handled securely, as well as the device that contains it.
A business often faces unique challenges when disposing of electronic waste. They may have larger items like server banks or photocopiers to get rid of, or have rooms full of outdated computers awaiting collection. Quantum can pick up any amount of electronic waste, and even offers free pickup services for large orders, making us the ideal partners for businesses in Sherbrooke to take care of their e-waste disposal needs.
North America produces a lot of e-waste, and it’s not all handled here. Instead, it’s often sent to countries like China, India, Ghana, and Nigeria, where it’s often processed by underpaid workers with inadequate safety protection. Recycling your devices with a reputable company like Quantum ensures they’ll be disposed of in a safe, healthy way.
Quantum’s recycling program was developed based on our more than 30 years of experience and is certified by organizations like the EPRA. We can apply our state-of-the-art recycling process to a range of devices, including tablets, TVs, game consoles, wearable devices, and the whole array of cords, chargers, headphones, and other accessories that go with them. Whatever devices you need to recycle, you can count on Quantum to do it right.
