Electronic Recycling Association seeks to supply charitable groups with donated IT equipment

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA), Calgary, is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to try and address the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’. ERA has offered 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 managing the retiring IT assets of organizations and individuals across Canada.

“We are proud to provide charities, non-profits, schools and care facilities all across Canada with the computers they require for their programs. This gives them access to reliable technology while allowing them to apply their resources to what they’re good at, developing programs to help Canadians struggling with poverty, health concerns or are otherwise experiencing misfortune,” said Bojan Paduh Founder and CEO of ERA.
