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

***Bring your own lunch***

***RSVP Required***

The mission of the Houston Food Policy Workgroup is to nurture the growth of a sustainable local food system, accessible to all, through education, collaboration, communication, and creation of a food policy council for the Houston region.

Meetings are open to the public and generally include leaders from various diverse organizations in the Houston region working on food issues. The group meets to discuss and encourage the advancement of local food production and consumption, and has begun to take on projects to work towards the functions stated in the mission statement. This group depends on the varied areas of expertise of its members, which allows the group to successfully move forward in its endeavors.

The workgroup meets at 11:30 AM on the second Wednesday of each month.  All are welcome, as long as you RSVP.

Quarterly Rural Meetings
Every three months, we meet move the monthly meeting to somewhere around the Houston region to allow rural partners and farmers easier access to participate in the workgroup and to expose Houstonians to Houston’s agricultural assets.
