Moose Jaw Family Services Receives the Gift of Technology

Moose Jaw Family Services was in desperate need of computers for staff. Their current systems are outdated and their computers are having issues around note taking and data tracking. The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is pleased to donate 4 laptops and 1 desktop computer to enable them to be more efficient in assisting their clients and community.

Moose Jaw Family Services is a registered non-profit organization, which has provided services to the people of Moose Jaw and the surrounding area since 1972.

Anyone can access the services at the Moose Jaw Family Services. Individuals do not need a referral, however, sometimes people are referred to them by doctors, lawyers, teachers, pastors, or other professionals.

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.

The ERA (Electronic Recycling Association), 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.
