The modern digital world has ushered in a variety of technologically advanced equipment, from state-of-the-art computer networks and comprehensive office phone systems to flat-screen TVs, complex copy machines and more. Yet with technology comes obsolescence – and a growing amount of electronic waste, also known as e-waste. The good news is that most electronic waste can be reused or broken down into its smaller components, with the materials recycled. That’s where Rogue Disposal & Recycling comes in. We offer a comprehensive electronics recycling program at our Transfer Station.

Why Electronics Recycling?
Oregon Electronics Recycling Law
Oregon E-Cycles, established by Oregon’s Electronics Recycling Law, is a statewide program that provides free recycling of all brands of computers, monitors and TVs. Rogue Disposal & Recycling is an approved collector in this state program.
While the state program does not provide free recycling for other e-waste — such as keyboards, computer mice, speakers or other electronics — there is currently no charge for these items thanks to incentives from ECS Regenesys, our processor. ECS Regenesys is a part of the e-Stewards program — a global network of individuals, institutions, businesses, nonprofit organizations and government agencies united to uphold a safe, ethical and globally responsible standard for e-waste recycling and refurbishments.
Putting Electronics In the Trash Is Illegal
Did you know that putting electronics in your trash is against the law? It is — and you could be fined. Electronic devices often contain lead and mercury, which can create health problems if they’re released into the environment. So don’t toss any electronics in your trash container. Just bring them to the Transfer Station where they can be recycled at no cost.
What Happens to My E-Waste?
Recycling Old Electronics
Rogue Disposal & Recycling has partnered with ECS Regenesys, a California-based electronic scrap processor and partner in our e-stewards program, to recycle obsolete electronics. ECS has a collection service center here in Medford. At its main facility, ECS has the ability to process 30,000 pounds of electronic products per hour.
The processes ECS uses to recycle electronics are guaranteed environmentally safe. Confidential data is securely destroyed. Then the various components are separated and shredded.
- steel and aluminum are recycled as metals
- plastic is recycled as plastic
- copper and precious metals are sampled, prepared and packaged for shipment to a primary copper smelter
