Electronics Recycling, Secure Shredding & More at The Energy Corridor Recycles Day, November 15

Help make West Houston’s Premier E-waste Recycling Event our biggest yet

Let’s keep potentially toxic metals away from landfills and roadsides. Bring your outdated electronics, documents that need secure shredding and recyclable household items like textiles and batteries to The Energy Corridor Recycles Day 2014, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday, November 15, behind the ConocoPhillips gas station, 700 N. Eldridge Parkway at Dairy Ashford.

West Houston’s premier e-waste recycling event and a vital part of America Recycles Day, The Energy Corridor Recycles Day annually collects literally tons and tons of electronic gear and other recyclable materials.

Electronics are laced with potentially toxic materials that can seep into groundwater and soil when not disposed of environmentally.

But if sustainability isn’t your thing, then how about the opportunity to clear out home and office clutter?

Old cell phones, stereos with blown components, computers and hard drives collecting dust, VCR and DVD machines, televisions and monitors of all types, neglected gaming consoles and a lot more can all be taken to The Energy Corridor Recycles Day. CompuCycle, one of Houston’s most reputable electronics recyclers, will make sure your gear gets the proper environmental treatment.

Plus, clothes, towels, batteries and other recyclable household stuff can be conveniently dropped off.

You don’t even have to get out of your vehicle. Volunteers will unload your gear. They’ll even hand you a goodie bag just for participating. It’s one of the easiest ways to eliminate clutter in a sustainable fashion.

During last year’s event, hundreds of people brought enough electronics to stuff two 18-wheel trucks to the brim. Some 14,000 pounds of documents were turned into undecipherable confetti, enough to fill up the shredding truck before noon. More than 4,300 pounds of household textiles and materials were recycled. All told, 55,000 pounds of recyclable materials were dropped off.

Join BP, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Phillips 66 and The Energy Corridor District and dispose of your e-waste and other recyclable materials properly during The Energy Corridor Recycles Day 2014, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, November 15.
