Free Electronics recycling event in Houston - Nov. 15th '08

Hey folks...

Recycle, reuse reduce

This is a great opportunity to safely (and at no cost to you) dispose of some of your old electronics. 

Here is the email we received along with some links for you to find out more. Be sure to mark this on your calendars and take advantage of the opportunity to clear out that closet/garage/drawer/server room etc of all the old gear you have not used in years.

On November 15th, 2008 there will be a large electronics waste (e-waste) collection event in the parking lot at Space Center Houston. 


This is part of a larger event by Sony Electronics ( put on by Waste Management and Recycle America as well as CompuCycle). These companies will be participating in four simultaneous e-waste collection events happening around the Houston area. 




The other locations for the event are: 


Space Center Houston

1601 NASA Pkwy

Houston, TX

77058



-Reliant Park -8299 Kirby Dr., Houston, TX 77054


-Humble Civic Center -8233 Will Clayton Parkway, Humble, TX 77338


-Montgomery County Precinct 3 Recycling -1122 Pruitt Road, Spring, TX 77380




The greatest thing about this event is that it is open to the public and it is free, free, free!! 





Usually there is a fee attached to the recycling of electronics, which subsequently defers people from properly disposing of their electronics. This is an incredible opportunity to educate people about not only how to properly dispose of their electronic material, but why it is so important to recycle through an ethical recycling company; including both environmentally and protection for human rights. Many times e-waste ends up in developing nations where workers, often times children, are exposed to harsh chemicals and heavy pollution. 




Our main sponsor, Sony Electronics, is an EPA recognized "e-cycle" partner, ensuring proper ethical treatment of all materials and people involved. It is truly a unique experience to be part of an event like this.  




All sensitive material is physically shredded at the local Houston warehouse ensuring protection of privacy and identity. All working and non-working materials are accepted. 




If you or someone you know would like to volunteer to help at the event, please sign up at http://www.mysignup.com/jsc




This event will be open to any and everyone. I would sincerely appreciate your help in spreading the word on this and invite you to join us at Space Center Houston on the day of this Texas Recycles Day event.
