Earth Day 2016 Brings Convenient E-Waste Management to CrossIron Mills

ERA and CrossIron Mills partner to offer the public secure and responsible disposal of unwanted electronic equipment

Calgary, AB (April 19, 2016) – The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) has partnered with CrossIron Mills to host an electronics collection event for mall patrons and the general public. Individuals are invited to drop off unwanted electronic equipment to be processed. Free hard drive shredding will also be offered inside the mall.

An ERA truck and e-waste collection cages will be stationed in the West parking lot of the mall, across from H&M, for patrons to drive up and drop off equipment. Hard drive shredding can be accessed at ERA’s display inside the mall, next to the community kiosk. All individuals who drop off equipment will receive a ‘Think Green’ reusable shopping tote.

ERA accepts most electronic equipment (computers, laptops, printers, phones, tablets, stereos etc.) and will remove data from all equipment received prior to evaluating it for reuse potential. Reusable equipment will be refurbished to support ERA’s Canada-wide computer donation programs while end-of-life equipment will be passed on to ERA’s accredited recycling partners for responsible final processing.

Media representatives are invited to attend and cover this community event.
