Houston To Expand Automated Curbside Recycling Program to Richwood Place

Houston Automated Recylcing
Richwood Place is on the list of neighborhoods that will receive new 96-gallon recycling bins that will begin to receive automated pickup service in November. In addition to increased capacity for recycling, the program now supports glass.

October 9, 2013 – Houston Mayor Annise Parker announced today a more comprehensive electronics waste products stewardship program for Houston residents. Since September 2011, the City has partnered with CompuCycle to provide a permanent electronics recycling drop-off site at CompuCycle headquarters located at 7700 Kempwood and monthly mobile e-waste collections on Saturdays at three City of Houston recycling sites. With the new expanded service, residents will be able to drop off e-waste free-of-charge at storage facilities participating in the GREENspot DROPoff Houston Program.

Cart delivery will begin the week of October 28, 2013, with the first collection occurring the week of November 25, 2013.
