Question of the Week:
According to a recent release from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), how many pounds of e-waste did Oregonians recycle through the Oregon E-Cycles Program in 2011?
According to a recent release from the Oregon DEQ, Oregonians recycled 25.9 million pounds of e-waste through the Oregon E-Cycles Program in 2011! This is up from 19 million pounds in the program’s 1st year, only three years ago.
The 25.9 million pounds of electronics waste Oregon collected in 2011 represents 6.71 pounds per Oregonian and has an energy savings equivalent to 3 million gallons of gasoline. Greenhouse gas reductions seen through the recycled amount is the equivalent of tailpipe emissions of 6,100 cars per year.
Their goal for 2012 is 27.1 million pounds. Learn more at http://www.oregonecycles.org.
