Stikeman Elliott donates over 150 electronic devices to non-profit e-waste recycling organization

September 20, 2019
To minimize the impact of Stikeman Elliott’s e-waste on the environment, the firm is happy to announce that it has donated used electronic equipment to the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA). This donation will result in the firm’s used equipment being redirected from landfills, refurbished and redistributed to well-deserving organizations across Canada.

From this donation, sixteen organizations will receive equipment to help them upgrade their technology needs without impacting their already rigid budgets. By receiving these donations, these organizations can use their technology funding for other projects they’re focused on. These 16 organizations share one common reason for their need of technology – they want to further their mission while creating a safer and healthier environment. The organizations who are recipients of Stikeman Elliott’s recent donation are:

Communauté Chabad De Dollard
Centre Communautaire Saint-Antoine 50+ Centre
Montreal SPCA
Residence Le Boulevard
Project 10
Afghan Women's Centre
Brightside Community Homes
Norfolk Housing Association
North Saskatchewan Independent Living Centre
e4c Financial Management Hub
Alberta Health Services
Society for Treatment of Autism
Sled Island Arts Fellowship
Rose City Handi-Van Society
Ozanam Recovery House

ERA was founded in 2004 and is a non-profit organization that aims to address the growing problem of e-waste. Over the last 15 years, ERA has helped individuals and organizations to prevent functional equipment from premature destruction. With a focus on recovery, refurbishment and reuse, ERA supplies charitable groups with donated IT equipment while securely managing the retiring IT assets of organizations and individuals across Canada.
