Did you know?

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

  • Electronic waste takes up only 2% of the space in landfills but accounts for up to 70% of total toxic waste production. Devices contain compounds like mercury, lead, beryllium, and flame retardants that can contaminate groundwater.
  • Recycling electronics doesn’t just help the environment, it also boosts the economy. Producing 10,000 tons of recycled material can create up to 300 new jobs.
  • Small appliances like microwaves, vacuum cleaners, and other household devices make up the largest share of e-waste by weight. Roughly 14% of consumers report throwing electronics away with their other garbage.
  • Some companies that claim to offer e-waste recycling just ship that waste to developing countries where it ends up in landfills. Quantum is certified by the EPRA, SERI, and other organizations that verify electronics recycling is being done the right way.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Sherwood Park

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.

Computer Recycling in Sherwood Park

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.

Smartphone Recycling in Sherwood Park

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.

Recycling Business E-Waste in Sherwood Park

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.

Make a Global Impact By Recycling in Sherwood Park

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.
