Recycling in Houston

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
It’s not just a catchy slogan, for us it is a way of life. If we can keep it from going to a landfill, we will.
[blockquote sub_text=”Katy Home Organizer”] “If you don’t have the time or desire to recycle, we can do that for you.” [/blockquote]

Cell Phones for Soldiers is a special program intended to help soldiers around the globe stay in contact with their friends and family back home. It was started in 2004 by two young siblings in Massachusetts. The program sells the used phones to a recycling company and uses the funds to purchase pre-paid phone cards to send to soldiers on deployment. You send them you[/one_third]

Westpark Consumer Recycling Center  ~  713.837.0311

5900 Westpark, Houston, TX 77057 ~ Located at Hwy. 59S between Chimney Rock & Fountain View 

 

The Westpark Consumer Recycling Center is a drive-through facility where citizens of Houston can drop off their recyclables.  Currently, more than 11,000 citizens per month bring their recyclables to the center. .

As recommended by the Westpark Consumer Recycling Center:

“Pre- sorting your materials and bringing them in one way containers that do not have to be returned to your vehicle will help us reduce your wait time. We’ll be able to service you quickly and get you back on the road.  Your help is greatly appreciated. Examples of one way containers: cardboard boxes, paper grocery bags. Plastic trash bags can be used but are less preferred due to the tendency of some to mix garbage with the recyclables.”
