B.O.P.A. is this Saturday

Bring your Batteries, Oil, Paint and Antifreeze, as well as large appliances and scrap metal to the Kingwood Metro Park & Ride Lot

Date: Saturday, October 29th
Time: 9 am to 1 pm
Location: Kingwood Park & Ride

Come to the second annual recycling and collection event at the Metro Park and Ride lot, please enter on Lake Houston Parkway.

Only rechargeable & lead acid batteries, used motor & cooking oil and latex paint (no oil-based paint) and antifreeze is accepted. The limit is 15 gallons of each. All liquids are required to be in sealed, non-leaking containers that are labeled as to contents.

NOT ACCEPTED: Oil-based Paint, Paint without labels, Household Hazardous Waste/Chemicals, Business Waste, Medical Waste, Radioactive Waste, PCB’s, Dioxins, Ammunition, Explosives, Compressed Gas Cylinders, Smoke Detectors, Household Trash or Tires.

And no need to bring EMPTY Latex paint cans or those that have HARDENED. These can be thrown away with your household garbage.

Since the B.O.P.A. is sponsored by the City of Houston and Councilman Dave Martin, only City of Houston residents are eligible to drop off at this event.  If you live in Harris County outside of the City or an adjacent county you must take your items to the county facility. Information is available on our website

Note that the City Solid Waste crew stops taking items at 1 pm.  Please get there before 1 pm! 

Also, Junky Business will take lead acid batteries, scrap metal and appliances from anyone.  He does ask that any appliances be cleaned out with no food residues inside.

Keep Kingwood Green volunteers are always at this event to help with traffic flow, to hand out recycling information, and answer your questions.  Look for our tent near the entrance to the parking lot.  We do recycle cell and smart phones as a fund raiser and would appreciate any contributions of those that you are willing to give us.

KKG will collect Alkaline Batteries at B.O.P.A.

Keep Kingwood Green will, for the first time, collect regular, single use Alkaline batteries at this B.O.P.A. event.

As a service to the community we will cover the cost to responsibly recycle AAA, AA, C, D and 9V batteries, which residents are currently unable to safely dispose off elsewhere.

We at KKG believe they do pose a danger to the environment and could leach heavy metals and other chemicals when buried at the local landfill, potentially contaminating our groundwater. So drop off your spent batteries with us (please no damaged ones) and if you want to help with the cost we would appreciate a small donation to help with our expenses.

Electronics Recycling again on Saturday, November 5th

From 9 am to 3 pm at the Kingwood Metro Park & Ride

Look for CompuCycle's truck and bring your old electronics to the monthly collection event. If you have a tv larger than 27", take it to CompuCycle in Houston for free disposal or check with Goodwill or Best Buy to see if they will take it. For a complete list of what they accept go to their
website or check out our site.
