Free Electronics Recycling at The Exchange

Recycling electronics at ORS is now FREE! (Formerly $15) Orcas became an official member of the state E-cycle program and can now accept TVs, CPUs, and computer monitors at no charge, though donations are accepted.

Televisions and computers contain a host of toxic substances such as lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic. These toxic substances can contaminate groundwater when landfilled. What can you do? Separate them from your waste stream.
