CALGARY, June 6, 2012 /CNW/ - The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA)
is launching secure drop-off depots across Canada. In partnership with
professionally trained computer data handlers, ERA will enable
companies and individuals to drop off their computers for donation and
recycling. Donors can rest assured that their sensitive information
will not fall into the wrong hands. ERA partners are trained and well
educated in handling computers, and ensuring data safety and security.
Depots will be added to our website over the next few months to ERA Depot Locations page.
ERA is also looking for more partners across Canada to be designated
Drop-Off Depots where the public can bring their computers and other
electronic equipment. Locations that are suitable drop off depots must
be willing to staff and handle the donations of laptops and computers,
with ERA training and support.
ERA is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing electronic waste
through the reuse and recycling of unwanted computers, laptops and
other related electronic equipment. Donated items are tested for
quality and then it is determined whether they can be reused, donated
or handled for environmentally responsible recycling. Once found
suitable the equipment is then donated to other organizations,
charities, schools and underprivileged individuals.
Equipment not suitable for donation is recycled with highest
environmental and government standards, in Canada. Data is handled by
professionals and erased with standards of the Department of Defense.
