For Local Governments

Local governments have the opportunity to play an important role in promoting the Oregon E-Cycles program. This can include educating people about the importance of recycling electronics, e-cycling, helping individuals and businesses locate participating collection sites, and assisting with inquiries from the public and media. If you receive technical questions that you cannot answer, please direct them to Oregon E-Cycles program staff.

Monster in Your Closet Campaign

DEQ's “Monster in Your Closet" campaign is designed to inform, remind and motivate Oregon households to take advantage of the state's free electronics recycling program. This campaign was the result of extensive research that revealed two-thirds of Oregon households have old, unused electronics stored away that are eligible for the Oregon E-Cycles program. 

Local governments and other partners are invited and encouraged to use the campaign resources.
