Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) May 3, 2004
Located in the City of Calgary at 1301 34th Avenue S.E. (off Ogden Road and Blackfoot Trail) this new facility will serve as a place where companies and individuals can drop off their unwanted electronic items for reuse or recycling. Items that are accepted include such things as computers, monitors, peripherals, televisions, stereo equipment, and other electronic items.
The province wide programs is expected to bring in large amounts of electronic items to be refurbished, reused, or finally sent off to the recyclers. This will act as a collection and sorting depot for old electronic equipment in the City of Calgary and province of Alberta, Canada.
Such items are currently being dumped into our landfills and are creating a toxic cocktail of heavy metals in the land they are buried in, potentially contaminating the land for years to come. The Computers and Electronics Depot is the alternative to the expensive electronic recycling solutions currently available in Alberta.
Companies and individuals are encouraged to use this new facility and drop off any unwanted electronics items. Most items are accepted at no charge, provided they can be refurbished and resold, or provided to different charities or individuals in need through programs offered by the Electronic Recycling Association. Items that are accepted for a fee only include such things as wooden console televisions, damaged or broken electronic items.
The E.R.A also offers a collection service to companies that are in need of disposing of their old unwanted equipment. If a value can be recovered out of the items collected then there are no fees, and 1 out of 5 companies can actually generate a return out of their otherwise non valuable surplus electronic equipment. Equipment is refurbished, all data is erased from the computers with technology that matches the highest possible Department of Defense standards.
Various other services are being offered through this association of organizations that specialize in dealing with electronic items in the most environmental and socially conscious way.
