February 9, 2009 – The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a nonprofit organization that donates and recycles computers and electronics. They now have warehouse and drop-off locations in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.
The ERA’s mission is to accomplish two highly valuable services:
- To foster a better community by reducing electronic and computer waste.
- To enable the non-profit sector to achieve excellence by providing for their IT needs through the donation of computers.
The ERA reuses unwanted computers and related electronic equipment through recovery and refurbishment, and then recycles the refurbished equipment through donation to charities and non-profit community organizations.
The project prevents unwanted computers and related electronic equipment from ending up in landfill or being prematurely disposed of or recycled when someone else can still use them. All materials that are not suitable for donation are appropriately recycled in a responsible and environmentally friendly way.
Visit the ERA website for more information, or to find a drop-off location near you.
