Green Century is a leader in recycling.

Green Century operates as an R2v3 and ISO-certified recycling facility, ensuring top-notch standards for processing electronic waste (E-waste), Universal waste, Styrofoam, Stretch wrap, and solar panels.

While dropping off most electronic items is free of charge, there may be applicable fees for Universal waste, Styrofoam, and stretch wrap.

All electronic devices undergo processing according to the rigorous R2v3 and ISO standards. This includes verified data destruction and adherence to the highest material recovery protocols, surpassing both state and federal requirements. As a certified refurbish center, we prioritize reuse whenever possible.

Styrofoam is meticulously chopped and densified before being transformed into various consumer plastic goods such as picture frames, TV and computer cases. We charge $10 for a 45-gallon bag of Styrofoam, and for larger drop-offs, please contact us for pricing at 503-764-9963.

Universal waste is either recycled for material recovery or responsibly processed to dispose of chemicals, never ending up in hazardous waste landfills.

Giving Back to The Community

Your Electronic Donation Could Positively Impact a Child's Future
Green Century Recycling has partnered with with Holla Mentors this year.  In 2022, Holla will launch a culturally responsive public charter school in East Portland centering on the youth of color. The school will begin with K-2 adding one grade each year until it serves Pre-K-5th grade and will focus on entrepreneurship, steam education, and a culturally responsive curriculum.
Your donations of ipads, laptops, and other technology may be redirected to help this charter school get off the ground. We at Green Century believe in Holla mentors as an organization and the needs they meet in our community.

The Recycle Process

Your satisfaction is our top priority.

All items are tested for functionality. Computer related items found to be working are refurbished or parted out to be sold or donated.

We know that data security is a serious issue. All hard drives are wiped to NIST standards unless you request Data Destruction.

It was Primo! I so appreciate the Certificate of Destruction. The driver understood exactly what I was asking about.

My experience was great. The driver arrived within the time frame given and was quick to pick up the equipment. Very easy service to use. Thank you!
