ERA & West Vancouver Police Offers FREE Data Destruction

By electronic recycling association February 14, 2023

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) and West Vancouver Police Department are partnering on March 11th, 2023 for a Fraud Prevention Month Event. The ERA will be shredding hard drives, phones, tapes and other small devices holding sensitive data from the Police department and the public.

We intend on educating the public on how important it is to dispose of their unwanted and old electronics correctly so that the data doesn’t find itself in another person’s possession. This will be a day to educate and supply answers to all of the publics’ fraud-related questions.

ERA will be bringing a portable hard drive shredder to allow the public to shred their personal devices, free of charge.
