The Edmonton metro area is home to the largest section of urban parkland in North America. It’s also home to more than 1 million people, more than 70,000 of whom live in Sherwood Park. Part of keeping Strathcona County beautiful is making sure local residents and businesses have an easy way to get rid of their garbage, and that includes their electronic waste. Quantum’s electronics recycling services are available for all of the communities in and around Sherwood Park, with pickup services as well as fee-free drop-off options at our facilities.
Even broken desktop computers and laptops can still have value. They contain metals like gold, silver, aluminum, and copper that can be extracted and recycled into new devices, cutting down on how many natural resources it takes to produce them. Unfortunately, they also contain harmful materials, like the lithium in a laptop battery, or the lead found in CRT monitors. The good news is, recycling these devices instead of throwing them in the trash lets the valuable materials be put to a new use, and keeps the harmful ones from contaminating the soil, air, and water.
Cell phones are powered by lithium rechargeable batteries that run the risk of exploding or catching on fire when they end up in landfills. This is along with the variety of other valuable metals and potentially toxic chemicals that go into these ubiquitous devices. Since most people don’t think to wipe their smartphone memory before throwing it away, they’re also potential causes of data leaks and identity theft. The electronics recycling services offered by Quantum use full mechanical and manual separation, as well as certified data destruction, to neutralize all the risks associated with disposing of unwanted and broken smartphones.
Businesses need to update and replace their electronics as often as consumers, but they have more of them, and contribute a proportionately larger share to the global e-waste problem. While disposing of items like fax machines and photocopiers can be a hassle, getting rid of business computers and company cell phones poses different risks, especially if it contains sensitive customer information or proprietary data. Quantum makes it convenient for Sherwood Park businesses to get rid of all their devices, with 48-hour pickup for loads of 25 items or more and convenient drop-off locations for smaller loads. Our data destruction services are conducted in accordance with NAID-Canada standards, so you won’t need to worry about information security when you recycle electronics with us.
A significant portion of the electronics that are thrown away in Canada end up halfway around the world, shipped to landfills and processing plants in Africa and Asia. Bringing your e-waste to one of Quantum’s electronics dropoff sites ensures it will be separated for reuse, recycling, and safe disposal, not just turned into someone else’s problem.
The average Canadian household has 3-4 unused electronics, and they’re often holding on to them because they’re not sure how to dispose of them properly. Quantum is the answer for Sherwood Park’s residents and businesses. From computers and smartphones to kitchen appliances and devices in the IoT, we’ll help you get rid of all your unwanted electronics safely and easily.
