ERA Donates 5 Computers to Toronto North Support Services

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is happy to donate 5 computers to Toronto North Support Services for the ongoing recovery of their clients. This donation will be provided to individuals who have moved into permanent housing and need computers to be able to access community social activities and virtual groups specific to their mental health and health needs.

Toronto North Support Services (TNSS) is a community-based, multi-service agency providing mental-health and homeless programs to adults in Toronto. Their work is client-centered, they believe in the inherent ability of those experiencing mental-health challenges or homelessness to make positive changes in their lives and they are honoured to be a part of that process.

They offer a variety of programs aimed at those experiencing mental-illness and/or homelessness. All of our programs are free of charge. For a complete list of our programs, please visit their website here.

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.

Do you have an old laptop that you don’t use anymore? A Samsung phone that doesn’t work? A stack of old electronic devices that are of no use? If so, the Electronic Recycling Association can help you, local communities, and the environment all at one time. Our goal is to collect unwanted or malfunctioning electronic devices from people and businesses across Canada, refurbish them, and donate them to charities and programs. Your donation can make all the difference, so start electronic recycling with us today.
