The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) was happy to donate 2 laptops to the Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada (VLRC) which is a not-for-profit national healthcare organization and the leading provider of rehabilitation therapy and healthcare services for individuals with vision loss.
The donation will help support high-school aged students gain computer skills needed for their classes and everyday life. These computers will be used by students at home to complete homework and lessons with VLRSK’s Assistive Technology Specialist. Both students have vision impairments that make reading print challenging and access to a computer (with assistive technology) will allow them to participate fully in their classes and prepare them for post secondary school.
Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada services are tailored to the unique needs and goals of each person who comes to them for help. Just like every person who experiences vision loss is different, so are the things they’re working to achieve in 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. Individuals and organizations alike move through technology hardware for a number of different reasons, and often there is ongoing productive use.
The ERA believes that “reuse” where ever possible is the most ecological approach to this growing stream, and an excellent way to compel real community goodwill at the same time. The Electronic Recycling Association has a clear mission of reducing electronic waste through computer recycling, laptop recycling and computer donation services. With depots throughout Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and all of Canada. ERA provides a great way to recycle electronic equipment safely and securely.
