We reduce adverse environmental contribution through recycling, repurposing and through the 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 Winnipeg, 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.

“I have been dealing with the ERA for almost as long as I have been working in the Desktop and Workspace Department. Over the last 5 years I have had an excellent relationship with this company. Their service keeps continuing to improve and supply the kind of support I require to keep things moving.”
“...I am writing to recommend the services provided by ERA a non-profit organization who has been taking our old computer equipment for recycling and refurbishment since 2013...ERA also provides invaluable services such as hard drive high level format and emails all certificates of completion directly to us...I would highly recommend ERA to any future donors of old computer equipment...”
“…we are pleased with the performance of the ERA…Alistair Noble and his team worked hard to complete the assignment and ensured reporting and communications were completed to a high standard…”
It is our experience that they deliver what they promise and to the highest standard…Their customer service is impeccable and as an organization that values Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility, I couldn’t think of a better partner than ERA.
“Our (computer donation) requests are for families of members who cannot afford to purchase home computers. They are low income families whose child/children attend our programs. They currently access the computers we have at the program, but they are limited to our program hours. If they had laptops, they would be able to do their homework at home, which would enable them to complete their assignments and enroll in more classes.”Director
“Being a financial institution, security is a major concern, and we always receive a certificate of destruction to confirm that any hard drives have been properly disposed of by being shredded. This does help to provide peace of mind that none of the information on the drives can fall into the hands of someone that may use it for criminal purposes”
Donations of unwanted equipment help to keep unnecessary electronic waste out of the landfills. With our reuse programs your donations are revitalized and given a new home. If the electronics absolutely cannot be reused, we will recycle it responsibility.BOOK A PICKUP
