Supporting Kingwood and the greater Lake Houston Area
Electronics Recycling this Saturday
By now you probably know that Kingwood residents have the opportunity to bring their old and obsolete electronics to the Kingwood Metro Park & Ride lot every 1st Saturday of the month, from 9am to 3pm. The City of Houston contracts with CompuCycle, a responsible recycler with their headquarters and de-manufacturing facility right here in Houston, to responsibly recycle various electronics. 
While the event is sponsored by the City of Houston, CompuCycle will take most items from non-residents.  The only restrictions are on TV’s and monitors.  These items do not have enough recoverable components to make the recycling economically feasible.  Since the City does not want these units going to the landfill or dumped in a back alley somewhere, they do pay a supplement to CompuCycle to responsibly recycle these two pieces of electronics.  So, only City residents can drop off these items and there is a limit to the size of TVs and monitors they accept in Kingwood: They do not accept old CRT TVs and monitors larger than 27 inches.  CompuCycle will take any other electronics listed on their
website from everyone.

Another great place to take your obsolete electronics is the local Best Buy store. They also have a size limit regarding televisions or monitors: No items larger than 32 inches are accepted, we were told. For those larger monitors and TVs residents may have to drive to CompuCycle's headquarters in Houston.


Spring B.O.P.A. 
Mark your calendar: Spring B.O.P.A (Batteries, Oil, Paint and Antifreeze), collection event on Saturday, April 28th is just around the corner. Start looking around your home and garage for those items you would like to drop of at the Metro Park & Ride end of April, between 9am and 1pm.

Check out our website for more detailed information on B.O.P.A.

Also, in case you can't wait until B.O.P.A., you can bring your latex paint to the Environmental Service Center North (they also accept oil based paint) or the Westpark Consumer Recycling Center.

Both location had temporarily different operating hours, due to Harvey cleanup, but are now back to regular hours.
