ERA and Calgary Drop-In Centre Working Together to Change Lives

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is proud to announce our on-going partnership with the Calgary Drop-In Centre (the DI).  They support our mission of reducing e-waste by recycling their unwanted electronic devices with the ERA. Through the use of ERA’s pickup services along with our data security measures, we are able to refurbish their devices to give to organizations in need while still being able contribute to the DI’s Computers for Low Income Calgarians (CLIC) Program.  The ERA recently donated 40 Keyboards, 40 Mouse, 40 Monitors and 80 powers cables to the DI’s CLIC Program.  The program helps provides low-income Calgarians with free refurbished computers.

The Calgary Drop-In Centre (the DI) is more than an emergency shelter. They provide essential care as well as health services, employment training, and housing supports to people who need help. Their programs and services connect people to permanent housing that meets their individual needs.

Rooted in community and fueled by kindness, the DI proudly serves as part of the Homeless-Serving System of Care, the Canadian Shelter Transformation Network, and they are in full support of the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness initiative, Recovery For All.

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a non-profit organization that has been reducing unnecessary electronic waste since 2004. We reduce adverse environmental contribution through electronic recycling, repurposing and through the donation of electronics and other IT Equipment. With a number of drop off locations around Canada based primarily out of Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Saskatoon, Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg, and an electronic pickup service, the ERA provides a meaningful way for organizations and individuals to deal with their old computer equipment in a safe and secure manner that matches or exceeds government standards.
