Computer and Electronic Recycling, The ERA Story

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a Not for Profit Organization that has been reducing unnecessary electronic waste since 2004. We reduce adverse environmental contribution through recycling, repurposing and donation of electronics and other IT Equipment. With a number of drop off locations around Canada based primarily out of Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Saskatoon, Toronto, and an electronic pickup service the ERA provides a meaningful way for organizations and individuals to deal with their old computer equipment in a safe and secure manner that matches or exceeds government standards.

Recycling Events

Fundraising Made Easy by ERA

The ERA recently launched a new fundraising program for charities. By putting together a collection event, your charity can earn hundreds or thousands of dollars to put toward program development or other fundraising goals. All you need to do is collect equipment, we'll take care of the rest. At the end, you'll receive a cheque from us, as well as peace of mind knowing you've diverted toxic e-waste and helped collect equipment that can be refurbished and donated back to charities just like yours. For more information, please click here
