The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) disclosed a new program that offers a safe and secure option for unwanted computer equipment with a strong focus on giving back to the community through technology donations.

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, and have already started making a difference in the community with tech donations, volunteering and fundraising opportunities,” said Bojan Paduh, founder and president of ERA.

“We’ve developed a strong data security program as well, and work in partnership with various law enforcement agencies to make sure the public is aware of and has access to recycling options that guarantee the safety of their personal information. This month we have already hosted free public events in partnership with the Calgary Police and the North Vancouver Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and plan to bring similar events to the Toronto area in the future.”

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. For individuals looking for an alternative, ERA also has a volunteer program that allows members of the public to earn a computer by volunteering their time. ERA also has an e-waste fundraising program, which allows participants to raise money for charitable causes by collecting e-waste.
