ERA Adds Several New Computer Donation Depot Locations in Calgary

Calgary, AB (PRWEB) January 24, 2007

ERA has added several new computer donation depot locations in Calgary, making it easier for residents in Calgary's NW, NE, SW, and SE communities to donate their old laptops, computers, and networking equipment. Computer donations and recycling in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, help out local charities and non profits access computers they couldn't otherwise afford.

"Corporations and smaller companies can always call the ERA to schedule a pickup directly from their offices," says Boyan Paduh of ERA.

ERA offers a hard drive destruction service on site, where ERA technicians can come to offices and erase data from hard drives, as well as destroy the hard drives on site, eliminating any chance that confidential information will get into the wrong hands.

ERA uses the only RCMP certified software "Blancco" which can erase all the data from hard drives, making it impossible for data to be compromised.

ERA requires additional donations of computers, laptops, servers, networking equipment to facilitate donations of computers to the local community. The requests for old laptops, computers, servers and networking equipment are getting overwhelming, and without more donations, the ERA may not be able to provide enough of these computers to the community.

If your company has old computers to dispose, please call the ERA first. Other recycling companies will only collect old computers for destruction and smelting, therefore eliminating any possibility of these computes being used by the underpriviledged and the poor. ERA is the only organization in Alberta that collects old computers for donation to the community. Please visit for pictures of donations made by ERA, and for a list of causes ERA is involved in.
