White Rock is the City by the Sea, with a location tucked along the Pacific Coast just north of the US border that gives residents and visitors alike access to stunning natural beauty. Recycling programs for unwanted electronics like cell phones, laptops, and appliances helps maintain the landscape and environment around White Rock so it can be enjoyed for years to come.
Computers use a lot of materials, including plastic, glass, and precious metals, as well as components like batteries, wires, and keyboards. 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.
Cell phones today contain precious metals like gold and silver, as well as other valuable materials like lithium and copper, all of which can be put to use in new devices. They also often contain saved passwords, financial data, and other personal information. 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.
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.
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.
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.
