Oregon E-Cycles provides free recycling of
computers (desktops and laptops - including tablets), monitors, TV, printers and peripherals (keyboard and mice). The program does NOT
currently provide free recycling of speakers, scanners, game consoles or
other types of electronics or appliances.
Oregon E-Cycles allows households, small businesses and small nonprofits to recycle more than seven items at one time. Oregon E-Cycles defines small businesses and small nonprofits as having 10 or fewer employees. Please call the collection site ahead of time to inquire about any verification needed and to ensure the collection site has the capacity to handle your items.
If you are a larger organization, you may still take your devices covered by the program to an Oregon E-Cycles collection site or service for recycling, but you may be charged for items over the seven unit-at-a-time limit. Please call the collection site ahead of time to make arrangements.
You can search for Oregon E-Cycles collection sites and services on this website or by calling, 1-888-532-9253.
You can also look for the Oregon E-Cycles logo at collection sites. Sites displaying the logo are participants in the program.
And remember that when you buy a new computer, monitor or TV, retailers will provide you with printed information about Oregon E-Cycles, reminding you to visit the Web site or call the hotline for more information.
No. Locations affiliated with Oregon E-Cycles will display the
Oregon E-Cycles logo, indicating their participation in the program.
Locations that are NOT part of Oregon E-Cycles are not required to
provide free recycling of computers, monitors and TVs.
An Oregon state law passed in 2007 requires electronics
manufacturers to pay Oregon E-Cycles. Oregon E-Cycles is an example of product
stewardship, where the company that makes a product is responsible for
recycling the product. Manufacturers include the costs of recycling their products
in the cost of doing business.
If you are not one of these entities, collection sites may charge
you for computers, monitors and TVs over the seven item limit.
If your local Oregon E-Cycles collection site does not accept
other devices, there are many other businesses that recycle electronics. Some
may charge a fee, depending on what items you want to recycle. If you live in
the Portland Metro area, call Metro’s Recycling Information Hotline at
503-234-3000. Otherwise, contact your local solid waste offices office for
recyclers in your area.
