The City of Milwaukie has been recycling its old cell phones and other electronics for many year and now members of the public can do their part too. Cell phone recycling collection boxes have been setup at the Library, City Hall and Public Works and anyone can bring in their cell phones, batteries and charges to these drop off spots. This is a free service to the public with the City's partnership with The Wireless Alliance, and you can be sure that the equipment will be responsibly re-used or recycled.
