Curated blog posts from Quantum

Did you know?

There's a whole category of waste dedicated to the electronic devices that most of use on a daily basis. But, despite these electronics bringing us so much entertainment, when their lifecycle is over, they can cause serious harm.

  • The category of e-waste is made up of hundreds of different substances, many of which are extremely toxic to humans and the environment. Some examples of such toxins include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, chromium, selenium, and flame retardants.
  • Every year, more than 300 million computers and 1 billion cell phones are produced.
  • The number of computers and cell phones being produced is expected to grow at about 8% every year.
  • Roughly 12.5% of our e-waste actually gets recycled. The rest goes to incinerators and landfills. If burned, e-waste releases toxic chemicals into the air that can cause damage to the central nervous system.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Vaughan

For the more than 312,000 citizens living in Vaughan, e-waste recycling is just now beginning to catch on as more and more facts are released about just how many of our electric devices go to waste. Overall, Canada sends just 12.5% of its electronics to recycling programs every year with the rest ending up in landfills. So, what can people and businesses in Vaughan do to help and why isn’t more being done already?

Computer Recycling in Vaughan

Laptop and desktop computers carry a high risk of data leaks, along with environmental hazards due to embedded batteries. When businesses need computer recycling services, it’s essential that the end-of-life assets are handled securely and in accordance with environmental regulations. We offer reuse and recycling services to help Vaughan businesses minimize their environmental impact and ensure compliance. At the same time, our certified data destruction services give you peace of mind in knowing any sensitive data is managed with the utmost level of security from the moment it leaves your facility.

Smartphone Recycling in Vaughan

Smartphones contain valuable materials including gold, silver, and lithium batteries. Without proper recycling, these resources go to waste. Furthermore, should they wind up in landfills, the lithium batteries in smartphones pose risks of fire and explosion. We work with Vaughan businesses and municipalities to make smartphone recycling convenient. Quantum is also fully certified, so you can rest assured any personal data is properly destroyed and your smartphones are recycled responsibly.

As Vaughan Grows, So Does E-Waste

Vaughan’s economy continues to pull ahead as new infrastructure is developed and foreign interest begins to accumulate in this beautiful region of Ontario. With that said, as more people and businesses move into the area, more e-waste is being produced by the city. Surprisingly, the problem is not the lack of programs to recycle old electronic devices, the real issue is that there is a tremendous lack of awareness about these programs.

Education Is Key

Like many other cities, Vaughan is just beginning to recognize how essential it is that we recycle and recover the 90% of components in our electronic devices that can easily be re-used to produce new devices for the market. However, many people and businesses still haven’t been informed about the countless hazards that go along with throwing away old electronics. Many more aren’t sure of the impact that recycling just a single device can make.

Businesses Can Take Acton Today

The good news? While education is still a massive undertaking that countless organizations are working to check off their list in Vaughan, your business can take action today and begin making a real impact on the environment and economy at large. Whether you produce a few devices a year or countless every single month, your recycling efforts will make a difference in the community.

Schedule a Pickup

If you’re a business owner in Vaughan, you don’t have to go far to recycle your electronic devices safely. In fact, you can reach out to Quantum and schedule a pickup. Not only will you be confident that your electronics are going somewhere good, you can also trust that we will safely and permanently destroy any data on the devices you hand over.

Additionally, every business who goes through Quantum will receive a certificate that shows just how big of an impact your company is making.
