Rogue Transfer & Recycling Inc. partners with Valley View Transfer & Recycling Station and ECS Regenesys to provide free electronics recycling through the end of 2008.
Rogue Transfer & Recycling Inc., based in Medford, Ore., has partnered with Valley View Transfer & Recycling Station, Ashland, Ore., and ECS Regenesys, Medford, to collect electronics for recycling at no charge through December 2008, in advance of the state’s 2009 launch of its electronics recycling program.
The service is for household customers and businesses with fewer than 10 employees. Beginning Jan. 1, 2009, covered electronic devices (computers, monitors and televisions with screens larger than 4 inches measured diagonally) will be accepted for free, but fees may apply to other electronic devices.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Ashland Sanitary & Recycling and ECS Regenesys,” Stephen Gambee, CEO, Rogue Disposal & Recycling Inc. “Rogue Disposal & Recycling has been serving southern Oregon since 1938, and as part of our 70th Anniversary ‘thank you’ to the community, we are proud to offer e-waste collection, ahead of the mandated time, free of charge, through 2008.”
Russ Chapman, co-owner of Asland Sanitary & Recycling, says, “Ashland Sanitary & Recycling, in partnership with Rogue Disposal & Recycling, chose ECS Regenesys because of the company’s standing as the premier recycler of electronic devices. We feel this is a very important service for our community and hope local residents take advantage of the no-charge collection offer through the end of the year.”
ECS Regenesys is the collection service center for ECS Refining, an e-waste processor based in Santa Clara, Calif. “With its automated proprietary ‘Regenesys Process,’ ECS has the ability to process 30,000 pounds of electronic products per hour and turn them from waste back into raw materials,” says Curt Spivey, president of Regenesys collection services division. “ECS can guarantee both environmentally safe recycling of computer products and the secure destruction of confidential data.”
