Supporting Kingwood and the greater Lake Houston Area

Metal Meets E-Waste this Saturday!


E-Waste Recycling this Saturday:

Metro Lot in Kingwood
9 AM to 3PM   Free, Rain or Shine
This Saturday is the first Saturday in May and as always Compucycle will be in Kingwood for their monthly electronics pick up.  All you need to do is load it in your car or truck and bring it to the Park and Ride lot.  So get that old computer, printer, monitor, or TV to them and give the components another life. 

Large Appliance and scrap metal Recycling:

From 2 PM to 3 PM Junky Business will be there (see above) to take your scrap metal, car parts, old lawnmowers, and small and large appliances.  Please do not bring large appliances before 2 PM as the Compucycle crew is not equipped to handle them.  This pick up is free but is only for metal objects, no other items are accepted.  If you cannot transport your item to the Metro lot, Pete will pick up at your residence but there will be a charge.  You can contact him by going to his website  

Spring BOPA is a big success
Thank you to all the Kingwood area residents who participated in the collection on April 25th.  While we have not heard the final amount of hazardous waste collected we know it was thousands of pounds and many gallons of paint, oil, and antifreeze.  Our apologies for the slow start as a thunder shower at 8:30 delayed set up.  Nevertheless, as the sun came out the City crew was able to quickly process all the materials fast and efficiently.  We always hear from residents that could not make it or heard about the BOPA after it is over.  There are alternative ways to dispose of your hazardous waste responsibly.  Go to our web site: and you can learn all about the City's Environmental Service Centers or their Westpark Consumer recycling center.  While they are not as convenient as driving to the Park and Ride, they are a good alternative especially if you are headed downtown for another reason. 

Healthy Kids Day at the Y and Earth Day at Lone Star College Kingwood
During the past few weeks volunteers from Keep Kingwood Green have had "tabling events" at both the Y and the College.  While most of the readers of this newsletter are pretty well informed about recycling opportunities in the area, there are thousands of people who don't have a clue.  No disrespect, but lots of people just think of aluminum cans, old newspapers, plastic and glass bottles, and cardboard as trash. If the trash man picks it up it must be trash!  We all know better and that is why we offer our services to help educate residents and students about all the ways we can recycle in the Lake Houston area.  If you ever have an event in which you would like us to participate, contact us through our web site or call our hot line at 713-206-0558. 

Curbside Recycling
In the past year, lots of neighborhoods have adopted curbside recycling as part of their normal trash services.  This is a convenient way to recycle and we know it has almost complete acceptance in those neighborhoods that now have it.  We also know it increases the recycling rate exponentially.  We understand Bear Branch Village is currently voting on a proposal to include it.  Let us know if we can help in any way to bring this service to your village.  For those still without this service, the Metro lot has bins available every Weekend from Friday at noon until dusk on Sunday.  

Put it on your calendar
Saturday, June 20th, 10:30, Kingwood Library
Home Composting Made Simple
Up to 30% of what goes to the landfill could be going back into your garden, lawn, or landscape as mulch or compost.  This program, presented by Keep Kingwood Green, will be led by a Texas Master Composter who will discuss the tools and equipment you need and the techniques used to turn all those leaves, grass, and dead plants into what gardeners call "Black Gold".
