[ARCHIVED] Recycle Electronics at Campbell Center

Inspired by the City of Eugene's internal Zero Waste Program, staff at Campbell Community Center invite residents to bring their old, broken or worn out electronics to the center for recycling. Winefelly Recycling will collect the electronics and recycle the base component materials, keeping them out of the landfill. There is no charge to recycle your electronics.

The basic rule is “If it fits in the in the E-Cycling Barrel by the front door and it uses electrons, Winefelly accepts it.” This includes appliances, old cell phones, monitors, wiring and cable, batteries, etc. The only exception is that if it still works and someone else would want it, Winefelly requests you donate it to charity.

The City’s Zero Waste Program seeks to reduce waste from internal operations and to divert more waste from the landfill. Purchasing strategies to reduce waste include promoting reduce and reuse, buying recycled content goods, requesting less packaging for new goods, and developing service contracts from a resource management perspective. The goal is to reuse, recycle, or compost 75 percent of City-generated waste through internal operations by 2014, and 90 percent by 2020.
