Oregon E-Cycles, a new program created by Oregon’s Electronics Recycling Law, provides free recycling of computers, monitors and televisions to anyone with seven or fewer items to recycle at a time.
Electronics manufacturers and the DEQ-administered State Contractor Program have contracted with collectors around the state, like Free Geek, making e-cycling convenient and easy. You can be assured that items taken to participating Oregon E-Cycles collection sites are handled safely and responsibly according to environmentally- sound management practices established by DEQ.
If you have more than 7 computers, laptops, monitors, and/or televisions please call ahead to determine whether you are eligible for free recycling of these items.
