Securing Your Data: ERA and London Police Joined Forces

By electronic recycling association March 26, 2024

On March 23, 2024, the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) and the London Police Service Financial Crime Unit partnered up for a fraud prevention event. Located at the Accident Reporting Centre in London, Ontario, the event offered a secure disposal solution for old electronics, from gaming consoles to servers.

By combining resources, ERA and the London Police aimed to combat identity theft and fraud stemming from improperly discarded electronics. Attendees not only disposed of their devices safely but also gained valuable insights into protecting against cyber threats.

This collaboration underscores the importance of public-private partnerships in addressing digital security challenges. Together, they demonstrated a commitment to community welfare and corporate social responsibility.

In thanking the London Police for their partnership, ERA emphasized the significance of such collaborations in fostering a safer digital environment. As we navigate an increasingly digital world, events like these serve as reminders of the importance of responsible electronic recycling for a secure future.

If you need help organizing an event contact the ERA. We will provide necessary resources (staff to assist with collection if necessary and confirmed in advance, collection bins, removal of equipment) as well as assist in handling the creation of marketing materials for your event (posters/flyers for you to distribute). All you’ll need to do is share event details with all of your contacts to ensure your collection is well attended.
