Otakuthon Anime Convention Receives Electronic Devices from ERA

By electronic recycling association June 27, 2022
The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) donated 10 laptops and 3 projectors to the Otakuthon Anime Convention located in Montreal, QC.  This donation will be used by the organization to enable them to work more efficiently on their event planning, to enhance productivity, and also to improve the service to the people they serve in their community. 

Otakuthon is an event that celebrates the cultural phenomenon known as anime (Japanese animation) and manga. Since 2008, the event has been held every summer at the Palais des congrès.  The convention remains the second-largest anime event in Canada.

Proud of its Quebec origins, Otakuthon strives to be a fully bilingual convention (French and English) since its beginnings.  Otakuthon has become an opportunity for attendees to enjoy and learn about our passion for Japanese culture, both modern and traditional.

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to address the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’. For over fifteen years, ERA has offered simple solutions to help individuals and organizations prevent operational equipment from premature destruction. With a focus on recovery, refurbishment and reuse, ERA continuously supplies charitable groups with donated IT equipment while securely managing the retiring IT assets of organizations and individuals across Canada.

We believe that reuse before recycling is critical in managing the waste created by computer hardware, and by offering industry-leading data destruction for all equipment we receive, we have securely repurposed hundreds of tons of equipment. Because not everything ERA receives can be reasonably repurposed, we have partnered with certified recycling organizations to process equipment that has reached the end of its productive life.
