ERA Donates Computers to Edmonton Non-Profit

The Electronic Recycling Association was pleased to fill more of the Quarter Arts Society donation request and recently provided them with a laptop and desktop computer. These computers will help the staff of this Edmonton non-profit be able to operate more smoothly and effectively together.

“Thank you and ERA for the two computers, with video monitor, keyboard, and mouse. You delivered more than I expected. Gratefully yours,” said tech director Mike Tulley.

Quarters Arts Society (QAS) is a non-profit society that sees the Quarters Downtown and Boyle Street as a vibrant neighbourhood for the arts in Edmonton and seeks to encourage its growth by engaging people with inclusive, accessible, citizen-led projects while honouring the heritage and exploring the diversity of the community. QAS is committed to creating opportunities and providing safe(r) spaces in the Boyle Street area for all Albertans to share in the joy of artistic expression.

Formed by a collective of visual artists, writers, designers and musicians residing in Boyle Street and surrounding neighbourhoods in 2013, and incorporated in October 2014, QAS has been working with community members and groups to provide space to collaborate, create, and celebrate the Boyle Street neighbourhood for five years. They are incredibly excited to launch our newest endeavor, CO*LAB. Check out their website to learn more.

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.
