Calling Out to All Companies Disposing of their Unwanted Obsolete Devices (Featured Article)
Featured Article from the ERA, a CIPS Corporate Partner
 

The Electronic Recycling Association is asking for your help to fulfill countless amounts of donations from their waitlist.

We are seeking your help. Due to the economic downturn, we are finding it extremely difficult to obtain enough donations from individuals to fulfill every charitable organizations wish.

Currently, the ERA has a growing list of over 300 pending organizations that are looking for devices. These devices range from laptops, servers, switches, projectors and other sorts of IT equipment. These items are needed to improve the lives of others, act as an anchor so that organizations can progress and make a real difference within the community.

This is ERA’s highest number of organizations ever to wait on a total of 2416 laptops and 900 computers. They are urging for your help and for you to be involved in changing an individual’s life for the better. “Over the years we have seen a notable increase in the need for technology through the staggering numbers portrayed on our waiting list each year.” Said Bojan Paduh, Founder and President of the Electronic Recycling Association. “If we all give a little, these donations would be filled in no time. I am looking for your help in making these organizations dreams a reality.”

Many organizations find it extremely hard to save a portion of their already rigid budget to buy the technical equipment they may need to create more awareness online. In the eyes of other organizations, it is not a necessity and therefore isn’t first on the priority list when deciding on where to spend the money they have been allocated.  Therefore, ERA donating devices to organizations in need is a big weight off their shoulders and they can use their technology funding for other projects they are working on throughout the year.

ERA will pick up your obsolete devices for free in order to fulfill all of these donation requests. They supply data security services for individuals and companies across Canada ensuring that your data is taken care of and securely erased.

If you can help, please call ERA at 1.877.9EWASTE or email info@era.ca for more information.
