Technology is constantly changing, resulting in an increasing amount of unwanted electronics. Some of these electronics may contain valuable materials that may be recycled. Additionally, some may contain toxic materials that are hazardous to the environment if not disposed of properly.
As of January 1, 2010, computers, monitors, and TVs cannot be disposed of in the garbage or at disposal sites such as landfills, transfer stations, or incinerators.
The Oregon E-Cycles
program makes it easy to recycle your unwanted computers, monitors, and televisions for free at participating locations.
- Anyone can bring seven or fewer computers (desktops and laptops), monitors, and TVs at a time to participating Oregon E-Cycles collection sites for free recycling.
- Please note that computer peripherals (keyboards, mice, etc.) and other types of electronics are not included in this program. Oregon E-Cycle collection sites may accept these materials but there may be an associated fee. Contact the collection site for more information.
