Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday has come and gone again. This huge shopping day for many meant amazing deals, but it often also means unwanted gadgets needing a new home.
Too much stuff can drive you crazy. And during the holidays it seems to get even worse. Between holiday, gift giving, entertaining and everything else that comes with the season, the clutter can be overwhelming. Before you’re knee deep in stuff, it’s time to declutter your space. Instead of letting it sit idle in your home or office, why not donate it?
It’s always nice to give back, and a used laptop, cell phone, or tablet is a valuable tool for a family without the resources to buy one. If you’d like to contribute an electronic to a family or organization in need, ERA can help you make that happen.
With drop off locations all across Canada, donating your obsolete electronics to the ERA is simple and secure. You can also give us a call at 1877-9EWASTE to see if you are eligible for a free pickup!
The ERA is focused on reducing unnecessary waste and/or environmental impact through effective management of retiring electronic and IT equipment. As a non-profit organization with deep community roots, it is our “reuse” focus and donation activities that set us apart from others in this sector. We are an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Certified Company that offers pickup services, comprehensive data security measures and subsequent reporting. Individuals and organizations alike move through technology hardware for a number of different reasons, and often there is ongoing productive use.
The ERA believes that “reuse” where ever possible is the most ecological approach to this growing stream, and an excellent way to compel real community goodwill at the same time. The Electronic Recycling Association has a clear mission of reducing electronic waste through computer recycling, laptop recycling and computer donation services. With depots throughout Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and all of Canada. ERA provides a great way to recycle electronic equipment safely and securely.
We work with charities across the country to provide refurbished electronics for their programs. This gives them access to reliable technology while allowing them to apply their resources to what they’re good at: developing programs to help Canadians struggling with poverty, health concerns or are otherwise experiencing misfortune. Because the Electronic Recycling Association is an advocate of equality, we are not specifically affiliated with a given charity. The ERA helps hundreds of charitable organizations each year through the donation of necessary computer equipment. Organizations qualified for donations through ERA’s donation program include: registered charities, non-profit organizations, care facilities (seniors homes, hospitals, daycares, etc.) and educational institutions.
