Why Electronics Recycling?
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, mice, speakers or other electronics — there is currently no charge for these items thanks to incentives from our processor (ECS Regenesys).
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?
Rogue Disposal & Recycling has partnered with ECS Regenesys, a California-based electronic scrap processor, 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
