Save the Date, then Save your Planet (or Garage): Energy Corridor Recycles Day is Nov. 15, 2014

Last year’s event stuffed two 18-wheelers with old electronics 

For five hours they came, car trunks and pickup beds filled full of outdated desktop computers, forgotten VCRs, malfunctioning stereos and MP3 players, fax machines long ago pushed aside for email, and cumbersome rear-screen projection televisions that took three people to unload.

When The Energy Corridor Recycles Day 2013 was over, West Houstonians had dropped off enough e-waste to stuff two 18-wheelers. They also brought so many documents for secure destruction that the shredding truck filled up in just over two hours.

From 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday, November 15, The Energy Corridor Recycles Day 2014 will make it easy to eliminate clutter from your home or office. All while making sure electronics are disposed of properly – keeping potentially toxic materials from contaminating groundwater or soil.

It’s a Texas three-step that’s about as easy as going through a fast food drive-through and perhaps more fulfilling.  

Step one: Save the date Saturday, November 15.

Step two: Fill your vehicle with old cell phones, outdated telecommunications systems, TVs, VCRs, game consoles, MP3 players, computers, hard drives, stereos and other electronics. Don’t forget those stacks of dog-eared documents deserving secure shredding.

Step three: Drive up to The Energy Corridor Recycles Day where a host of friendly folks (volunteers from Energy Corridor companies and The Energy Corridor District), a couple of forklifts, piles of pallets and a shredding truck await your stuff. (You don’t even have to get out of your car or truck.)

The Energy Corridor Recycles Day makes it easy to be green. And clean, as in “less clutter.”

It all takes place in the parking lot behind the Conoco gas station, 700 N. Eldridge at N. Dairy Ashford, just north of I-10.

And in the spirit of recycling, here’s the date again: Saturday, November 15, 2014.
