Electronic Recycling Association of Alberta Donates 1000 Computers to Needy Recipients in Alberta Thanks to Donations of Old Computers from Alberta Corporations

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 7, 2006) - Electronic Recycling Association of Alberta donated 1000 computers to various charities and non profit groups in Alberta thanks to support from Shell, Esso, Shaw, Office Depot, Deloitte and Touche and many other corporations.

In 2006, Electronic Recycling Association has identified some 50 third World countries that have many school and universities and colleges that still can not afford computers for students to use.

It is the Electronic Recycling Association's goal to collect over 100,000 computers in Alberta and British Columbia from various corporations and government departments to use in its socially beneficial programs. Ensuring that everyone has access to computers and technology including, Seniors, children, disadvantaged communities, charities and non profit groups, in Canada and world wide.

You or your company can also help these programs succeed by donating your old computers rather than taking them to the landfill. The Electronic Recycling Association has many drop off depots in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver where you can deliver a computer for donation and recycling. A pickup service to large companies and government departments is also available.

Any computers that can not be used would be recycled and kept out of the landfills ensuring environmental protection of the highest standard. The Electronic Recycling Association is currently proposing to develop a landfill collection program in British Columbia to prevent all computers and electronics from being buried by placing specialty made bins for separation and removal of all electronics.
