Electronic Recycling Association - Canada

Best eWaste Management Organisation - North America
Award for Excellence in eWaste Re-Use 2019
Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to address the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’. For over fifteen years, ERA has offered simple solutions to help individuals and organizations prevent operational equipment from premature destruction. With a focus on recovery, refurbishment, and reuse, ERA continuously supplies charitable groups with donated IT equipment while securely managing the retiring IT assets of organizations and individuals across Canada. ERA believes that reuse before recycling is critical in managing the waste created by computer hardware, and by offering industry-leading data destruction for all equipment they receive, they have securely repurposed hundreds of tons of equipment.
