The state of Oregon has implemented a FREE recycling program for computers, monitors, and televisions. What is NOT included are: mice, keyboards, printers, copiers, scanners, cell phones and other electronics including appliances.
The Oregon e-cycles website has additional information. What is not outwardly apparent is how to locate a participating recycler. After calling their toll free number, I was directed to look on the right hand side of the page, away from all the standard navigation… Viola! there is the link for participating recyclers.
Be sure to fully erase your hard drive before taking in a computer!
