Did you know?

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

  • Electronics use valuable materials like gold, palladium, silver, and copper. It’s estimated that more than $7 billion of raw materials are thrown away in e-waste each year in North America alone.
  • Along with the more than 1,000 harmful chemicals that exist in electronics already, improper disposal creates new ones. For example, mercury generates methylmercury, an even more toxic form of the heavy metal, when it’s combined with decaying organic waste.
  • In 2019, the total amount of e-waste globally reached 53.6 metric tonnes, an increase of 21% in just 5 years.
  • Smart devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) are a fast-growing contributor to e-waste. The number of IoT devices worldwide surpassed the Earth’s population in 2018, and is expected to reach 30-50 billion by 2030.

As much as 90% of these materials can be reused when a computer is dropped off at a recycling center instead of thrown in a landfill. Quantum’s electronics collection services make it convenient for businesses and residents of White Rock to get rid of old or broken computers the right way.

Our data destruction services are conducted in accordance with NAID-Canada, while our electronics recycling process is R2 certified to follow best practices for e-waste disposal.

How Businesses in White Rock Recycle E-Waste

Businesses don’t just have individual computers or cell phones to dispose of. Instead, they often have an entire office’s worth of unwanted devices after a hardware update, along with bulky electronics like fax machines, photocopiers, servers, and similar equipment. Many business owners don’t have the time to research where to take their e-waste, or the time to take it to a recycling center once they’ve found one. Quantum offers White Rock businesses multiple collection methods, with pickup and dropoff options for retailers, IT companies, and other local businesses with unused devices to get off their hands.

Quantum is White Rock’s Electronics Recycling Solution

British Columbia has recently expanded the type of materials you can leave at the curb for recycling, but this still only includes materials like paper, aluminum, plastic, and glass. That certainly doesn’t mean those are the only things that can and should be recycled, though. Let Quantum serve as your electronics recycling experts for TVs, game consoles, kitchen appliances, speakers, and whatever unwanted devices you have taking up space in your home.

E-Waste Recycling in White Rock Makes a World of Difference

The environment around White Rock isn’t the only place that’s affected when electronics are thrown in landfills. Trash from Canada is often sent to developing countries for processing, and the places it often ends up have become some of the most polluted areas of the world. Recycling unwanted devices instead helps keep our planet a safe and healthy place for everyone.
