Did you know?

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

  • Electronic waste sent to landfills is often incinerated, generating compounds like hydrogen chloride, dioxins, furans, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), many of which are carcinogenic and all of which are toxic.
  • Much of the e-waste generated in North America is shipped to developing nations in Asia and Africa. Two of the largest destinations include Guiyu, China and Agbogbloshie, Ghana, both ranked among the most polluted areas on Earth.
  • Devices like laptops and phones are often discarded when they’re outdated, even if they’re still in working condition. It takes about 9 gallons of water and 3.5 pounds of fossil fuels to produce a single computer chip, so reusing these devices instead of discarding them can save a significant amount of natural resources.
  • Quantum has developed a proprietary calculator to measure and track the impact of e-waste recycling on greenhouse gas emissions and their overall carbon footprint.

Recycling Your E-Waste in Victoria

The thriving capital of British Columbia, Victoria is best-known for two things: its colorful natural beauty and its booming technology sector. Quantum’s electronics recycling services help to ensure the latter doesn’t impact the former, helping tech companies and residents throughout Victoria dispose of their unwanted devices in a way that’s convenient, secure, and friendly for the environment.

Computer Recycling in Victoria

It takes a lot of natural resources to make a computer, and all of those materials go to waste if it ends up in a landfill. Even the components of broken computers can have a lot of value, from the lithium batteries in laptops to the gold, copper, and other precious metals used in circuit boards, cables, and wires. Other things inside computers can be harmful to the environment, like the lead in CRT monitors, flame-retardant chemicals, and plastics. Quantum’s e-waste experts identify unwanted devices that can be refurbished to extend their usable life, and break the others down into parts and materials that can be reused for future products.

Smartphone Recycling in Victoria

A smartphone contains a similar mix of reusable materials and potentially toxic chemicals as a computer. Cell phones also often contain a lot of information you don’t want other people to see, like stored passwords and logins or financial and personal data. Quantum can take care of both aspects of proper cell phone recycling. We work with businesses and communities across Victoria to make smartphone recycling easy, and are fully certified in both data destruction and electronics recycling, so you can trust our service to protect both the environment and your data privacy.

How Do Businesses Recycle E-Waste in Victoria?

Many business owners want to recycle their unwanted electronics but don’t have the time to research how to do it properly. Technology businesses particularly can generate a lot of e-waste since they need their equipment to be able to use the latest software and tools. This is where a certified e-waste collection service like Quantum can be a huge help. Our flexible recycling solutions include both drop-off and pickup options, and removal is free if you have 25 devices or more.

Why Does It Matter Who Recycles Victoria’s E-Waste?

Most people recycle old electronics specifically to keep them out of a landfill. Unfortunately, not all e-waste disposal services have that same goal. Some just send the e-waste they collect to other locations around the world, where it’s often incinerated to get to the valuable materials, releasing harmful chemicals into the air, water, and soil. You can avoid this by using a certified recycling service like Quantum. We’re R2 accredited and operate in accordance with the EPRA and NAID-Canada, so you can have complete confidence your used electronics are being recycled with complete respect for the environment.
