MISSION OF THE COASTAL PRAIRIE PARTNERSHIP
The mission of the Coastal Prairie Partnership is to
promote the conservation and restoration of coastal prairie ecosystems.

HOW WE WORK AND WHAT WE DO

Coastal Prairie Partnership (CPP) is a private, nonprofit collaboration of governmental agencies, non-governmental institutions, private individuals, and landowners working to achieve common conservation and education goals. Our ultimate goal is to help foster a more connected and empowered prairie community in coastal Texas and southwest Louisiana.

CPP plays five important collaborative roles in the prairie community.

  • Convener – CPP hosts meetings throughout the year to discuss pressing issues in prairie conservation and restoration and how the prairie community can be better served by collaborative action.
  • Adviser – Governmental entities, nonprofits, landscape architects, and private individuals routinely call upon CPP to advise on ongoing or new prairie conservation and restoration initiatives.
  • Teacher – CPP offers empowering classes, workshops, and field trips each year. We also help to interpret the prairie’s importance to the general public and teach others how to be effective prairie communicators.
  • Cheerleader – Saving and restoring prairies is difficult work. CPP is committed to honoring the efforts and dedication of our prairie colleagues by promoting their efforts and events and by recognizing their excellence through yearly awards.
  • Networker – CPP connects those in need of assistance with experts in the field. We also foster collaboration and networking among professionals events such as our annual Restoration Roundup and State of the Prairie Conference.

Electronics Recycling at Clear Lake Recycling Center @ Ellington Field/Clear Lake Neighborhood Recycling Center
Nov 4 @ 4:00 am – 10:00 am
Electronics Recycling at Clear Lake Recycling Center @ Ellington Field/Clear Lake Neighborhood Recycling Center | Webster | Texas | United States

The City of Houston Solid Waste Department and CompuCycle are providing monthly one day E-Recyclable collection events on the first Saturday of the month at the Ellington Field/Clear Lake Neighborhood Recycling Center.  This is primarily for City of Houston residents, but CompuCycle says no one will be turned away.

CompuCycle – Houston’s first R2 certified electronic solutions provider – guarantees that all data will be permanently destroyed and that electronic items will not end up in our landfills. If parts of the equipment can be reused, they will make sure that this is accomplished, and no parts will be sent to Asia or Africa.
Since the program began last year, collections have averaged about 15,000 pounds per month. Thank you for caring, recycling, and keeping these hazardous substances from the landfill! Compucycle is able to salvage for reuse or sell almost all materials turned in at these events. That is a win win for everyone!

Items accepted:
TVs, PCs, servers, keyboards, mice, laptops, game consoles, monitors, switches, small kitchen appliances, memory chips, hubs and routers, printers, copiers, scanners, fax machines, projectors, rechargeable batteries, cable boxes, car batteries, telephones, cell phones, PDAs, tape drives, hard drives, cords, cables, cameras, toner cartridges, stereo equipment, CD’s, floppy drives, VHS tapes, hair dryers, curling irons and straighteners, alarm clocks, irons, radios, and electric fans.   Any small appliance with a plug can be donated!

Also, CompuCycle has a mobile hard drive shredder to shred hard drives on-site for residents.
You can also recycle these items at the CompuCycle warehouse.  Check their web site for details: www.compucycle.net
Keep Kingwood Green will send a monthly reminder to our mailing list and Facebook page
