Data protection is one of our main concerns before reusing and refurbishing laptops. Hard drive shredders enable even the most sensitive parties to safely donate their computers, while destroying only the data containing hard drives.

The Electronic Recycling Association Introduces more Mobile Hard Drive Shredders in Canada and USA.

The ERA has acquired several mobile hard drive shredders to further protect the sensitive data of its donors.

As featured at events Canada wide with RCMP in Vancouver, Calgary Police, Edmonton Police and other law enforcement agencies, the portable hard drive shredders offer a hassle free method of destroying and protecting personal and corporate confidential data.

The Ameri-Shred mobile hard drive shredders can process 200 hard drives per hour. Any data on the hard drives from laptops or computers donated gets completely destroyed, forever.

The ERA currently offers several solution for data protection. The solutions include software wiping, RCMP and DoD level of security military software wipe, and now, with the introduction of the more of its mobile shredders in Canada, and USA, ERA is able to offer complete data security for ultra sensitive information.

The ERA is currently in the process of moving into a new facility in Seattle, San Jose and in the Greater Vancouver area newly build warehouse at a landfill reclaimed site @ 11111 Twigg Road, at which time the public will be invited to bring their computers and laptops for donation, and will be given an opportunity to shred their hard drivers, usb thumb sticks, and cell phones at no charge.

ERA supports environmental protection, reuse of computers and laptops. Data security is of utmost concert to ERA and that is why it offers onsite hard drive shredding, ensuring 100% data protection and security to legal firms, hospitals, institutions and corporations.

Corporations and institutions can request for the ERA to deliver the mobile hard drive shredders to their offices, for data destruction for large quantities of hard drives. Smaller volumes can be shipped to ERA or delivered for destruction.

ERA will reuse the computers and laptops, by giving them to charities and non profits, as well as enabling low income families and companies to purchase them for very cheap. Not everyone can purchase a brand new IPAD or laptop, so the ERA allows low income people and start up companies to buy computers for as cheap as $20, and laptops for as cheap as $50. ERA also provides low cost servers, networking equipment and high tech devices.

ERA donates computers and electronics at no charge to charities and non profits, as much as it is able to. Since the ERA receives no government funding or grants, it sells used computers and laptops to pay for their shredders, trucks, warehouses, employees.

Many Vancouver and BC charities, Canadian charities and non profits have already benefited from the ERA programs, and the list of those is on the ERA website, http://www.era.ca

USA charities and non profits based in Seattle and San Jose can start to apply to receive free computers for their causes.
