So much of what we consume every year goes to waste. Quantum is looking to change that.
Windsor’s strong history in automobile manufacturing, combined with the growth of the economy across the Windsor-Essex region, gives the city a stronger economic outlook than other regions of Canada. While business growth is overall good news for residents, it’s also important to limit the impact of that activity on the environment to maintain the natural beauty Ontario is known for. Properly recycling unwanted devices is one way to do this, and Quantum makes it easy with our range of pickup and dropoff collection services.
Desktop computer monitors are a leading contributor of lead in landfills, especially older-style CRT monitors. Laptops, meanwhile, have batteries that can release lithium into the water or soil, and can even explode and cause fires if improperly disposed of. When you recycle your computer instead, the glass, metals, and other resources contained in them can be reused, rather than becoming hazardous waste that contributes to pollution.
It’s estimated that more than 3 million cell phones are thrown away across Canada in a given year. That number is only likely to grow as smartphone use expands. Like computers, cell phones contain valuable materials like gold, copper, nickel, and lithium that can be reused in new products when you recycle your phone with Quantum instead of throwing it into a landfill.
Not only do businesses replace their electronics more frequently than the average person, they usually have more of them. Depending on the organization, they may also have more complicated electronic waste recycling needs, including things like manufacturing equipment, fax machines, printers, or server banks, in addition to computers, tablets, and appliances. Quantum’s pickup services help businesses quickly and easily dispose of all their e-waste, while our data destruction program gives business owners peace of mind that any information stored on these devices will be handled as securely as the items themselves.
Some disreputable e-waste disposal companies don’t actually recycle the devices they collect. Instead, they ship this hazardous waste to countries in Africa and Asia, where it contributes to global pollution and affects the health of local residents. This is why it’s crucial to work with a certified electronic waste disposal operation, like Quantum, that you can count on to safely dispose of everything people recycle with them.
There is more to electronic waste than just computers and phones. From home theater systems and equipment like headphones, speakers, televisions, and DVD players, to game consoles, cameras, electronic toys, and kitchen appliances, anything that uses electricity and circuit boards can be recycled. Windsor’s residents can bring any type of electronic waste to a Quantum location to make sure it’s disposed of the right way.
