City expands electronic recycling

From CitizenNet, the City of Houston eNewsletter:

The City of Houston has a more comprehensive electronics waste (e-waste) products program for residents. Houstonians can now drop off e-waste to be recycled free of charge at storage facilities participating in the GREENspot DROPoff Houston Program.

Currently, there are over 30 locations throughout the city where residents can drop off e-waste, with the goal to add an additional 20 locations by the end of 2013. For GREENspot locations, visit

Here are some examples of everyday items that can now easily be recycled: Beta/DVD/VCR players, cables, computer mice and monitors, cords, hard drives, fax machines, keyboards, laptops, radios, stereo components, televisions and zip drives. Note: All personal information will be stripped before recycling.

Since September 2011, the City has partnered with CompuCycle to provide a permanent electronics recycling drop-off site at CompuCycle headquarters located at 7700 Kempwood Houston 77055, and monthly mobile e-waste collections on Saturdays at three City of Houston recycling sites.
