Did you know?

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

  • Much of the e-waste from North America is shipped to Asia, where workers are exposed to toxins and paid an average of $1.50 a day to extract precious metals. The rest is often incinerated, releasing those toxins into the air.
  • Electronic waste is the fastest-growing waste stream globally, and only a small fraction of it (around 12.5%) is recycled properly.
  • Although electronic waste is classified as hazardous waste under Canadian law, only about 20% of the approximately 700,000 tons of e-waste produced here each year is properly disposed of.
  • Organizations like the Electronics Products Recycling Association (EPRA) and Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) oversee e-waste recycling operations to verify they’re following industry best practices and government regulations. Quantum is certified by these and other organizations, so you can trust us to dispose of your electronics properly.

Recycling Your E-Waste in St. Albert

Originally settled as a Metis community, St. Albert is today the second-largest city in Edmonton’s metro area.

Recycling your electronics helps to maintain the natural landscape around St. Albert so the city can continue to thrive in the future.

Computer Recycling in St. Albert

As of 2021, about 80% of households in Canada had at least one computer, according to Statistics Canada. This is a dramatic increase over previous years, and is only likely to grow as internet access becomes necessary for education and work as well as entertainment. Recycling laptops, desktop computers, and accessories like scanners, monitors, keyboards, and mice allows for the metals, glass, and other materials used in them to be recovered and reused, rather than becoming sources of toxic waste in landfills.

Recycling Cell Phones in St. Albert

The average smartphone user upgrades their device every two years. Unfortunately, old and broken phones are often thrown away, allowing toxic chemicals from their built-in lithium batteries to be released into the environment and wasting the valuable metals used to build them. We help St. Albert residents get rid of unwanted cell phones the right way.
