Electronic Waste Disposal at City Hall

Dead batteries? Empty printer cartridges? Old cell phones?
Don’t put it in the landfill! Simply throwing electronic waste in
the trash may be the easiest option at the time, but it can cause
more harm than many realize.

Electronic waste can take thousands of years to decompose. During that time, it has a damaging and long-lasting effect on the environment. Toxic chemicals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium, and lithium are released into the soil and groundwater. This contamination can compromise the food chain and pose numerous health risks; including reproductive and developmental problems, cancer, and immune system damage.

Sweet Home Sanitation has provided a receptacle at City Hall for
their Halsey customers to dispose of small electronic waste items. The bin is located just outside the lower entrance to City Hall and is accessible 24 hours a day.

Computers (desktops, laptops, and tablets), peripherals (keyboards and mice), monitors, televisions, and printers can be disposed of for
free through the Oregon E-Cycles Program. For more information or
