Drug Take-Back Event

This Saturday, October 28th from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Kingwood Park & Ride

Bring your expired or unused medication to the National Prescription Drug Take-Back event, hosted by the Drug Enforcement Agency

The disposal service is free and anonymous for consumers, with no questions asked. Keep in mind that needles, sharps, asthma inhalers, and illicit drugs are usually not accepted

On April 29th, 2017 the DEA and over 4,200 of its state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners collected 900,386 pounds of unwanted medicines — about 450 tons — at almost 5,400 sites spread through all 50 states. The top two states with the largest collections were California with 74,864 lbs and Texas with 72,361 lbs.
NO Fall B.O.P.A. event!
The City of Houston Solid Waste Department
CANCELED the  B.O.P.A. collection event!
We at KKG hope there will be a Spring B.O.P.A., as Kingwood residents have come to rely on these bi-annual collection events. We will let you know as soon as we hear any news from the City.

If you can’t wait for the B.O.P.A. event next year and have items to drop off, there are other options:  Go to our website and check out our Local Recycling Guide.

If you want to recycle your scrap metal or old appliances, please call local Junky Business at 832-377-5865 and Pete will come and pick up your water-damaged refrigerator, washer or dryer for free!

If you have oil based paint or other hazardous substances, take it to the City's Environmental Service Center, or go to the Harris County Hazardous Household Waste Collection Facility.

E-Waste Recycling is back!
Mark your Calendar: There will be an E-Waste collection again on the first Saturday next month. On the 4th of November from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Kingwood Metro Park & Ride.

Bring your damaged and outdated electronics to the monthly collection event. CompuCycle will take a wide range of electronics except for televisions and monitors larger than 27". Please note that, since the City pays for the recycling of TVs and compute monitors - these items are accepted from City of Houston residents only!

Please check out CompuCycle's
website to see a complete list of items they accept.

Best Buy accepts monitors and TVs up to 32".


City's Curbside Recycling still on hold!
The City of Houston Solid Waste Department still has not resumed it's curbside recycling pick-up service in the Kingwood. (The private firms, Waste Management, Republic and Best Trash never stopped picking up recyclables.)

Please use the the large recycling bins at the Metro Park and Ride lot, supplied by the City.  The bins are always there by noon on Friday and some of them arrive much earlier. You can drop items there until dusk on Sunday. There are bins for cardboard, paper, metal cans, plastic bottles, colored glass and clear glass.
