Supporting Kingwood and the greater Lake Houston Area
Don't trash your Christmas Tree: Recycle it!
Keep Kingwood Green urges residents to recycle their once live Christmas tree by taking it to the curve in front of the Kingwood Library on Ben’s Branch.  You can drop off your tree anytime from now until January 15th. Hundreds of trees have already been recycled at that location. The City of Houston Solid Waste Department turns the trees over to Living Earth, which turns them into mulch and compost.

Please remember that the trees must have all decorations, ornaments, tinsel, lights and stands removed. Flocked trees cannot be recycled.

If you drop it at the curb in front of your house, it will be taken to the Atascocita landfill and buried, unless you have yard waste pick up by the City of Houston.
E-Waste Collection on Saturday, January 7th

This Saturday at the Metro Park & Ride Lot

Did you get a new computer, TV, cell phone, or other gadget for Christmas?  Tons of electronics were sold right here in the Lake Houston area, not to mention online.  Please remember to recycle any electronic item that you will no longer use or need.  CompuCycle will be at the Metro Park and Ride lot the first Saturday of every month from 9 AM to 3 PM all year.  They are an R-2 recycler.   This means they must verify that all components are recycled or disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.  They too, guarantee that any content left of a hard drive or other memory unit will be “wiped clean”
Do you have left over or old Christmas lights?  Do bring them to the E-waste collection on January 7th for responsible recycling.  As you replace old light strings with new efficient LED lights, do recycle the old ones so the copper can be saved and reused.

Consider all Recycling Options in Kingwood

Recycling more than ever 

Most Kingwood residents know that if you do not have curbside recycling in your neighborhood you can bring your plastic, glass, paper and metal to the weekend recycling collection bins at the Metro Park & Ride lot, thanks to the City of Houston Solid Waste Department. But did you know, that if you do not want to wait until the weekend, you might be able to bring all your paper and flattened cardboard to a Paper Retriever bin at your local school or other collection bins around Kingwood. There are also collection bins now for old clothing and shoes in various strip mall parking lots or local gas stations.

Help Keep Kingwood Green

Please consider volunteering with us

Keep Kingwood Green is a 501-c-3, all volunteer, non-profit organization.   Our mission is to advocate for more and better recycling options in the Lake Houston area and to educate residents, students, and businesses how and where they can recycle. 

We are often asked to increase the scope of our mission to include other environmental problems.  With limited finances and limited volunteers we have concentrated on the recycling issue.  There is still much to do to improve and increase recycling in our area.  

We would love to have more community volunteers to help us with this mission.  As with any volunteer organization, volunteers can spend as much or as little time as they have available.   If you would like to have more information about volunteer opportunities, please let us know by sending a note to:
We raise some funds to meet our expenses by collecting cell phones at Alspaugh's Ace Hardware and Local Print Solutions. We also provide recycling services at community events like the 4th of July celebration with the help of generous sponsors. Going forward we are actively looking for corporate sponsors. If you are a local business owner interested in partnering with us please give us a call or
email us.  

Or, if you simply appreciate what we do in the community we would love any monetary contribution you wish to make by sending it to PO Box 5125, Kingwood, TX 77325.
