Metro Find a Recycler Database


If you are looking for information about proper disposal of electronic waste or e-waste, be sure to visit: E-Stewards

"The e-Stewards Initiative aims to create a more sustainable and just world by creating a responsible recycling solution to our growing electronic waste (e-waste) problem. Our goal is to give each of us an answer to the question — what is the right thing to with my old TV, computer, mobile phone, or tablet? Doing the right thing is extremely important as collectively consumers can create the positive changes needed to prevent our electronics from polluting the environment and poisoning local and global communities."

You will find a listing of certified e-waste recyclers, consumer e-waste drop-off sites, and information about the E-Stewards certification process.

Looking to sell (some sites even accept damaged electronics) or buy used tech?  Try:  Gazelle, Decluttr, SwappaNextWorth, USell

Legacy Health Recycling Program

According to the Legacy Health, Legacy has an 8,500-square foot recycling center on the campus of Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center.

They recycle more than 2,000 tons of material a year, including:

  • Child car safety seats and bike helmets
  • Electronics (computers and peripherals, other electronics)
  • Food waste
  • Glass
  • Kitchen oil
  • Metals (steel, tin, lead, copper, aluminum and others)
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Plastics, including sterile, blue plastic wrap and Styrofoam (block and peanut)
  • Solvents
  • Toner cartridges
  • Yard debris/landscaping waste

Material from Legacy and from our recycling partners is commingled inside our facility and sorted by workers from SCVP Inc., a nonprofit that employs alternatively-abled workers. Many of these workers have been with Legacy for more than a decade.

Community partnerships

Legacy is a recycling support location for many local businesses. In fact, we often collaborate with other community groups to investigate new recycling opportunities.

In another form of recycling, our surplus office supplies are available free to employees, various non-governmental organizations and the public.

Plastic blue wrap

Visionary members of our operating room staff implemented a program to recycle the plastic blue wrap that is used to package sterile surgical instruments. Today, Legacy's efforts have helped to make a market for this commodity. The result — literally thousands of tons of blue wrap kept out of landfills.

Toner cartridges

All sizes and types of toner and ink-jet cartridges, whether from Legacy departments or employee homes, are recycled or, where possible, re-used.

Car safety seats

Legacy Health is happy to recycle your used/outdated car safety seats and dispose of the materials in an environmentally correct manner.

Car seats may be dropped off from 5:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily at the Main Admitting desks of either Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel or Legacy Emanuel Medical Center - 2801 N. Gantenbein, Portland, OR 97227.

Please remove all fabric, foam and harness straps before dropping car seats off with us for recycling.

Contact the Car Passenger Safety Program for details, 503-413-4005. 


In addition to the list below, The Rebuilding Center has put together a comprehensive listing of area recycling, reuse, and salvage resources.  Some are duplicates of those beneath, but you might find one or 2 not included.  Rebuilding Center



Additionally, the Oregon Chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) compiled the useful hints below.

Batteries:

  • Put single-use batteries in a plastic bag to prevent leakage in landfills. Hazardous-waste collection sites and BatteriesPlus stores accept rechargeable batteries.

Junk Mail:

  • Next time you move, don’t fill out a change of address form at the Post Office—directly contact everyone yourself.
  • List your telephone number in your local directory without an address or get an unlisted number.
  • Don’t send in product registration cards.
  • Don’t use stores’ “buyer’s club” card when making purchases.
  • Call the customer service number on unwanted catalogs and ask to have your name removed from their mailing list.
  • When unwanted mail comes with a postage paid envelope, use it to return the mailing label along with a written request to remove your name from the organization’s mailing list.
  • When contacting a company that is already sending you unwanted mail, be sure to use the exact name and address that is on the label you receive. You’ll improve your chances of getting your name removed when the information is an exact match.

Medications:

  • Ask at your local pharmacy if it will properly dispose of old medications for you.

Magazines:

  • Don’t use magazines as a fire starter in your fireplace. They contain toxic chemicals that shouldn’t be released into the air.

Paint:

  • Let latex paint dry and put it out with your regular trash. Mix in cat litter or sand to dry up cans more than a quarter full. Take oil-based paints to waste-collection centers.
