Computer and Electronic Recycling, The ERA Story
The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a Not for Profit Organization that has been reducing unnecessary electronic waste since 2004. We reduce adverse environmental contribution through recycling, repurposing and 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 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.
