In addition Junky Business will be there to collect appliances, (large and small), scrap metal, and lead/acid batteries.  Pete said they will accept material from anyone.  He does ask that any appliances be cleaned out with no food residues inside. Also, if you tell him you heard it from Keep Kingwood Green, he will come to your house between now and May 5th to pick up large appliances you would normally take to the BOPA. If you are in the Kingwood, Humble, Atascocita are, he will waive the pick up charge during this time for large appliances or large amounts of metal. You can contact Pete if you have questions as to what he will take. Check out his website. Or call him at 832-377-5865 and don't forget to tell him you heard about the free pick up from Keep Kingwood Green.

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 at the front 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. Drop those off at our tent.  No need to go through the line if that is all you are bringing. 

No other electronics will be accepted that day. Electronic collections are always the first Saturday of every month at the same location. 

If you can’t make it to the B.O.P.A. but have items to drop off, there are alternatives. 
Go to our
website and check out these alternatives under the B.O.P.A. section. We always have residents who do not realize that this event is only for the items listed above.  If you have oil based paint or other hazardous substances you will have to take it to one of the ESC’s.  Click on our website to get that information. 
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.  Again, information is available on our
We look forward to seeing you.


Also on Saturday: National Drug Take-Back Day

Saturday, April 29th from 10am to 2pm at the Metro Park & Ride

The Drug Enforcement Agency in cooperation with the Houston Police is offering another safe prescription drugs disposal opportunity on Saturday, April 29th.
Need to clean out the medicine cabinet?

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is a national initiative that encourages individuals to turn in unused or expired prescriptions, controlled substances and over-the-counter medications for safe disposal.

The medication collection allows citizens to give their unused medications to law enforcement officials without releasing personal information. After the event, law enforcement officials will dispose of the medications collected in an environmentally safe manner.

Last year the DEA and over 4,200 of its state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners collected 893,498 pounds of unwanted medicines—about 447 tons—at almost 5,400 sites spread through all 50 states, beating its previous high of 390 tons in the spring of 2014 by 57 tons, or more than 114,000 pounds.  The top five states with the largest collections, in order, were Texas (almost 40 tons); California (32 tons); Wisconsin (31 tons); Illinois (24 tons); and Massachusetts (24 tons).
