The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) was delighted to donate 5 laptops and 5 cell phones to Felana Maitso Centre in Madagascar. This donation will enable them to work more efficiently, to enhance productivity, and also to improve the service to the people they serve.  Students will now have access to technology they desperately need.

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA), 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.
