Oregon's E-Waste Recycling Program

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 6:31 PM


Since 2010, Oregon passed a law making it illegal to dispose of old computers in trash-cans and landfills. The Recycle Ban came into effect in January of 2010, stating that consumers must either reuse or recycle their old electronics. Fortunately, Oregon has a free E-cycling program that allows people to bring up to seven computers, monitors, and tv's. Starting in 2015, other items such as keyboards, mice, and printers will also  be required for recycling. To locate a nearby recycling site, call 1-888-5-ECYCLE (532-9253), or visit the Oregon E-Cycles website
