E-Waste Contract Approved by Houston City Council
Houston, TX - This morning, Houston City Council voted on and unanimously approved an amendment to the agreement for the purchase of electronic recyclable material between the City of Houston and CompuCycle, Inc. The contract, which has been temporarily suspended since July 2015, will allow the City to expand its scope of services to include monthly weekend e-waste drop off events in Kingwood and Clear Lake on the first and second Saturdays of each month respectively.
Council Member Martin has advocated for the renewal of this contract and has led the effort on behalf of District E constituents to ensure that this potential hazardous waste is disposed of safely and responsibly. He would specifically like to thank Keep Kingwood Green for not only being the voice of the recycling community in Kingwood, but also for their ongoing support and advocacy of the e-waste recycling efforts.
The first weekend drop off event that is scheduled for Kingwood is Saturday, March 5 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the METRO Park and Ride located at 3210 W. Lake Houston Parkway.
Clear Lake residents can expect the first drop off event to take place on Saturday, March 12 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Ellington/Clear Lake Neighborhood Recycling Center located at Highway 3 and Brantly Avenue.
