The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) was pleased to donate 2 laptops to the Spinal Cord Injury Alberta in Edmonton. This donation will go to clients in the community who do not have disposable income to purchase equipment, and to provide them with access to community networks. This will reduce isolation with keeping them engaged and provide comfort during financial hardship.
Since 1945, Spinal Cord Injury Canada has been a part of substantial change that has helped individuals with spinal cord injury and other disabilities from coast to coast. Their mission is to empower persons with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities to achieve Independence and full Community Participation. SCI Alberta supports its clients through it’s services in client support and service coordination, community development and systemic change, peer program, information services, and active living.

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.
