The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is calling out to all businesses and individuals to donate their unwanted computers and laptops to help them fill requests from charitable organizations and individuals in need.

The 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 seventeen 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.

"We are proud to provide charities, non-profits, schools and care facilities all across Canada with the computers they require for their programs. This gives them access to reliable technology while allowing them to apply their resources to what they're good at, developing programs to help Canadians struggling with poverty, health concerns or are otherwise experiencing misfortune," said Bojan Paduh Founder and CEO of ERA.

Currently, the ERA says, the following are some of the organizations that need donations.

  • In Alberta, the Boys and Girls Clubs, Big Brothers, Big Sisters need 100 laptops and 40 desktop computers
