Founded in 2004, The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a Not-For-Profit Organization focused on educating the public about the environmentally responsible disposal of unwanted electronic waste and subsequently assisting the public to reduce or even eliminate the toxic electronic waste that would otherwise end up in landfills.

The ERA accomplishes this goal by partnering with corporations and individuals who donate their unwanted electronic and IT equipment to us, where we remove all data and then evaluate the equipment for potential reuse. What we are unable to acceptably refurbish is appropriately recycled, ensuring a nil landfill contribution.

As a Not-for-Profit Organization with deep community roots, it is our reuse focus and donation activities that set us apart from others in this sector. We are an ISO 9001:2008 Certified Company who offers pickup services, comprehensive data security management 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 across Canada, the ERA provides a great way to recycle electronic equipment safely and securely.
