Recycling Your E-Waste in St. Catharines

As a vibrant manufacturing hub, St. Catharines has a wide variety of both businesses and residents with electronics recycling needs. Often, these people and companies want to recycle their unused devices, but don’t know how to go about it. Quantum takes the hassle and guesswork out of e-waste disposal, with an array of drop-off locations and pickup services for people across St. Catharines and throughout Ontario.

Recycling Computers in St. Catharines

Desktop computers contain a variety of materials, from the gold and copper used for their interior components to the plastic and glass utilized in the monitor and housing. Not only can many of these resources be recovered and reused, but they can cause serious problems if they end up in landfills, releasing hazardous compounds like lead and mercury into the environment. Laptops have a similar array of components, and add lithium batteries to the mix, which can make a laptop a fire risk when it’s thrown away. Recycling computers, as well as accessories like cords, keyboards, speakers, and mice, helps make the most of their useful parts while limiting their impact on the environment.

Recycling Cell Phones in St. Catharines

The average cell phone is only used for about 1-2 years before it’s replaced, but its usable lifespan is potentially much longer. Quantum refurbishes and resells cell phones to extend the use of these items. Phones that don’t work can still be broken down into their components and recycled into new devices, reducing the environmental footprint of each new phone that’s put out on the market. With more than 31 million smartphone users across Canada, this can be a big help in making smarter use of our natural resources.

How Do Businesses Recycling Electronics in St. Catharines?
