Electronic Recycling Association

The ERA (Electronic Recycling Association), is focused on reducing unnecessary waste and/or environmental impact through effective management of retiring electronic and IT equipment. As an Not for Profit Organization with deep community roots, it is our "reuse" focus and donation activities which set us apart from others in this sector. We are an ISO 9001:2008 Certified Company who offers pickup services, comprehensive data security measures and subsequent reporting. Individuals and organizations alike move through technology hardware for a number of different reasons, and often there is ongoing productive use. The ERA believes that “reuse” where ever possible is the most ecological approach to this growing stream, and an excellent way to compel real community good will at the same time.

The Electronic Recycling Association has a clear mission of reducing electronic waste through computer recycling, laptop recycling and computer donating services. With depots throughout Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and all of Canada. ERA provides a great way to recycle electronic equipment safely and securely.
