Electronic Recycling Association

The Electronic Recycling Association is a not for profit organization with a mission to reduce electronic waste and the negative impact it has on the environment by reusing and recycling unwanted computers, laptops and other electronic equipment. We tend to prevent unwanted electronics from ending up in landfills or being prematurely disposed of and recycled when there is somebody that can still use them, maximize the life span of computers by refurbishing and donating them to your local charities and other not for profit organizations at no cost, and, if the equipment is not suitable for donation, recycle it in an environmentally friendly way.
