New Tech Option for Toronto Based Charities
The Electronic Recycling Association launches computer donation program in Toronto
TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is pleased to announce the opening of a full service depot in Toronto. They are seeking new partnerships with charitable organizations who are in need of computer equipment and companies who are in need of secure and socially responsible e-waste management.
"We are thrilled to be up and running in the Toronto area, it means we can start making a difference in the community with tech donations and fundraising opportunities for deserving charities," says Bojan Paduh, founder and president of ERA. "Last week I was honored to personally deliver donations to Chai Lifeline, who support seriously ill children and their families with necessary resources, and Wychwood Open Door, whose programs assist homeless and socially isolated community members. There is a huge need for this kind of program in Toronto, and we are looking forward to working with more local charities and businesses."
ERA accepts donations of unwanted computer hardware and related equipment from companies and individuals for responsible and secure reuse or recycling. They refurbish what they can and provide local charities, non-profits, care facilities and educational intuitions with refurbished equipment donations. ERA also has an e-waste fundraising program, which allows participants to raise money for charitable causes by collecting e-waste.
Unwanted equipment may be dropped off at ERA's depot, located at 8, 491 Brimley Road. To arrange a professional pick-up and removal of unwanted equipment, book an e-waste fundraiser or to become a charitable partner, visit www.era.ca or contact [email protected], or 1.877.939.2783 (1.877.9EWASTE).
