The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA.CA) say that old PCs don't need to add to Canada’s 'e-Waste Mountain' and can be a resource for local community

IT Computer Hardware Disposal, Recycling solutions and Environmental Compliance

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 youths."

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.
