ERA and Cambie Community Centre Partner for Electronic Recycling Event

By electronic recycling association April 22, 2024

In a world increasingly reliant on electronic devices, the importance of responsible disposal and recycling cannot be overstated. Recognizing this need, on April 20th, 2024, the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) teamed up with the Cambie Community Centre in Richmond, BC, to host an electronic recycling event in honor of Earth Month.

The event served as a beacon of environmental stewardship, encouraging residents of Richmond and beyond to dispose of their old or unwanted electronics in a sustainable manner. With electronic waste (e-waste) being one of the fastest-growing waste streams globally, initiatives like these are essential to mitigate the environmental impact and promote a circular economy.

The partnership between ERA and the Cambie Community Centre exemplifies the power of collaboration in addressing environmental challenges. By combining resources and expertise, they were able to provide a convenient and accessible avenue for individuals and businesses to responsibly recycle their electronic devices.

Throughout the day, community members streamed to the Cambie Community Centre, each carrying a diverse array of electronic gadgets – from old smartphones and laptops to outdated gaming consoles and printers. Volunteers from ERA were on hand to assist with unloading and sorting the devices, ensuring that each item would be properly processed and recycled.
