Electronic Recycle

Did you know that a new electronic recycle law took effect January 1, 2010? It is now illegal to dispose of computers, laptops, monitors, or TVs in Oregon. The ban prohibits disposal of these items in the garbage or at disposal sites such as landfills, transfer stations, and incinerators.

Electronics may contain toxic materials such as lead, cadmium, and mercury which are dangerous to landfills. Approximately 1.9 to 2.2 million tons of electronics reaches the end of their usefulness each year. Only 18% of computers, cell phones, and televisions are recycled.

The following is a list of local drop off locations, (it’s a good idea to contact them for more information on what they recycle, especially if it is a large item).

Employees at SPARC Enterprises accepts all electronic devices at Allied Waste Services 1920 Northwest Washington Boulevard, Grants Pass, For more information please call SPARC at 541-472-9300.

The staff at Goodwill and charitable organizations accepts used working electronics.

Southern Oregon Sanitation, 1381 Redwood Avenue, 541-479-5335

Josephine County Transfer Station, 1749 Merlin Road, 541-479-3371

Most of these drop off locations are accepting laptops, monitors, and televisions, but it is always good to call in advance and make arrangements.  Some drop off centers do not accept printers, scanners, digital cameras, microphones, and monitors.

Electronic recycle information is located at oregonecycles.org, another great site is Appliances Recycling to Guide Green web site, and more local recycle information is located at the Recyling in Grants Pass Area website

If you have questions regarding the site, please contact the webmaster.
