NEXT STEP E-Waste Recycling is ON!

As a part of our premier green school program and partnership for sustainable schools, we are teaming up to keep electronics out of the landfill.  All this week, you can drop off any electronics (runs or ran on a battery or cord), WORKING  or NOT WORKING at our collection bin near the front office. If you have larger items, you can take them directly to Next Step.

Got a bunch of stuff like old computer parts, toasters, alarm clocks, and more taking up space at home or work? Why hang on to it? We want it! Bring it by to one of our Recycling center and we will refurbish it.   If we can’t fix it, we recycle it for you, working with eSteward and R2 Certified Recyclers. Remember the Eugene Recycling Center is located near the corner of West 10th Ave and Garfield St.
