UNICEF Canada to Benefit Big from One Organizationís Waste Reduction Week Initiative


Electronic Recycling Association to host 5 fundraising e-waste collections across Western Canada with all proceeds going UNICEF Canada.

Calgary, Canada, October 17, 2015 --(PR.com)-- In recognition of Waste Reduction Week, which runs from October 19 to 25, Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) will be hosting electronics collection events across Western Canada, with all proceeds to benefit UNICEF. There will be events in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.

Individuals are invited to bring in unwanted electronic equipment to be confidentially processed. At the end of each event, equipment collected will be sorted and weighed by ERA. Rebates will be paid out to UNICEF according to ERA’s Moolah for Macros fundraising program, which attaches individual values to specific and/or operational equipment while peripherals and parts are paid out based on pounds collected. ERA will have collection bins onsite as well as an art display created by a local artist from upcycled computer parts, and will be holding a draw for several pieces of art.

“Waste Reduction Week has always been a great time for organizations to launch or promote waste reduction initiatives,” said Bojan Paduh, president and founder of ERA. “And now there is even more incentive for the public to get rid of the equipment that has been collecting dust for years in their homes.”
