Calgary Association of the Deaf Receives the Gift of Technology

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is proud to announce the donation of 3 desktop computer, 5 laptops, and 3 projectors to the Calgary Association of the Deaf.

The reason they asked for donation of this equipment is because they had a recent break in and all of their computers were stolen from their offices.  The ERA was happy to donate the devices they needed to get their office operational again.

Calgary Association of the Deaf (CAD) is a non-profit organization. The primary purpose of the Calgary Association of the Deaf is to protect and promote the rights, needs and concerns of Deaf Calgarians while endeavoring to improve the quality of life for Deaf people in general.

They are working towards accessible programs and services for the Deaf, late-deafened, Deaf-Blind, and Deaf with multiple disabilities in the primary language of American Sign Language.

Calgary Association of the Deaf is governed by Executive Board of Directors, members and volunteers. They collaborate with their affiliated associations of the Deaf at the local and provincial level. Their programs and services are provided to meet the needs of the Deaf community.

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to address the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’. For over fifteen years, ERA has offered simple solutions to help individuals and organizations prevent operational equipment from premature destruction.

With a focus on recovery, refurbishment and reuse, ERA continuously supplies charitable groups with donated IT equipment while securely managing the retiring IT assets of organizations and individuals across Canada. We believe that reuse before recycling is critical in managing the waste created by computer hardware, and by offering industry leading data destruction for all equipment we receive, we have securely repurposed hundreds of tons of equipment.

Because not everything ERA receives can be reasonably repurposed, we have partnered with certified recycling organizations to process equipment that has reached the end of its productive life. Call us at 1877-9EWASTE to book a pickup today!
