IT Computer Hardware Disposal, Recycling solutions and Environmental
VANCOUVER, June 4, 2013 /CNW/ - An ethical, and practical solution for
disposing of old electronic equipment is offered by ERA.CA, award-winning computer recycling organization, in response to the
problem of 'e-Waste Mountain'.
There is a perception that the waste industry is not ready to deal with
the increase in demand for E-waste recycling which is now becoming an
environmental and ethical issue. However, ERA.CA has been prepared since 2003 with a number of socially responsible
solutions to ease the burden for Canadian companies such as
refurbishment, re-use then recycling. This method enables access to
low-cost computers to those unable to afford new ones and maximum
environmental benefits as re-use requires less energy than recycling.
"Businesses have to consider the re-use and recycling of their IT
equipment as part of their business strategy, we prioritize re-use so
that our clients can donate some of their old computers to local
community groups thus maximizing the social return on what otherwise
would become an environmental liability" commented Bojan Paduh, of ERA.CA. "We can provide nationwide collections of IT and electronic equipment.
ERA.CA can guarantee that all sensitive data is removed on-site or off-site
and that the non re-usable equipment received is re-cycled to approved
standards and by authorized specialists. We are also a social
enterprise, providing training to local unemployed and unskilled
ERA.CA also provides tracking reports to show exactly what happens to the
equipment collected. This can be achieved while still minimizing the
financial impact of compliance.
