E-recycling depots open for business
Wednesday, July 28, 2004
Calgarians don't have to stockpile their old electronics for recycling
any more thanks to permanent E-recycling depots that have opened around

the Electronics Recycling Association of Alberta has set up a series of
drop-off points to collect used computers, stereos, cellular phones,
televisions and other devices, free of charge.
"There's such a high demand for proper disposal of equipment because
people understand that it's just not right to throw all this stuff
away," said Bojan Paduh, the association's operations director.
"People have said they would like to have this available permanently,
so we're setting up a system with no cost to taxpayers."
The association, in co-operation with several local businesses, has
developed collection centres where Calgarians can take their old
gadgets to be refurbished or recycled instead of having them interred
in local landfills.
In some cases, the depots offer small refunds for the equipment.
"Stores can keep some of the things, fix them and then re-sell them,"

Paduh said drop-offs should be arranged by calling the depots directly

association's website (www.era.ca).

It plainly marquis four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew
