Public broadcaster hosts electronic waste recycling to raise money
Oregon Public Broadcasting, which has long made money by accepting junker cars as donations, is now expanding into 'e waste.'
OPB, the state's leading public radio and TV network, is accepting electronics waste for recycling at its parking lot in the Johns Landing area of Portland, 6932 S.W. Macadam Ave., on Friday, April 15, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, April 16, from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m.
OPB is teaming with Green Century Electronic Recycling and IMS Electronics Recycling. There's a $5 fee to have your CRT monitor recycled, and a $1 fee per diagonal inch to have your TV recycled.
Other electronics accepted without a fee include LCD monitors, cell phones, telephones, networking and communication equipment, computers, laptops, printers, fax machines, standing floor copies, ink and toner, keyboards, mice, DVD players, stereo audio and video equipment, cameras and hand-held devices.
