Electronics Recycling


A one-of-a kind recycling program that guarantees your security, protects the environment and employs people with disabilities.

Today, the average consumer who purchases a new laptop computer is likely to upgrade within only three years. What happens to used cell phones? Most are discarded after only 24 months, on average. The DEQ reports that old computer monitors have historically constituted 33 percent of the total e-waste stream in Oregon landfills. They decided to create the Oregon E-Cycles program to designate approved drop-off sites for your out-dated electronics items. Garten is proud to have been identified as one of the Willamette Valley’s first DEQ E-Cycles sites!
Although your older electronics devices may have out-lived your needs, remember they may still have a useful life. Some items can be refurbished and reused, and a vibrant secondary market exists for models three years or newer.

Why Bring Your Electronics to Garten?

Since 1970, Garten Services has provided vocational and retirement opportunities for people with disabilities throughout the Willamette Valley. We are proud to be part of a world-wide movement toward corporate responsibility and greater sustainability in all we do. Our Electronics Recycling Program is a perfect example of sustainability in practice.

Ecological Sustainability: Our E-Recycling Program guarantees none of your surrendered electronics will end up in landfills — anywhere in the world.

Social Equity: When you bring us your e-recycling, you partner with us to provide jobs for people with disabilities here in your community.

Economic Vitality: When people with disabilities work, they pay taxes — just like you — so the economic benefits touch the whole community.
