Consumer Electronics Recycling

November 15, 2016
7:00 am to 2:00 pm
Holzwarth Road and
Wellness Drive
(near Wellness Gate)

In celebration of America Recycles Day, the ExxonMobil Houston Campus and Harris County Improvement District No. 18 will be holding a collection day of electronic equipment, batteries, and more for safe and responsible disposal. Members of the Springwoods Village community and employees are encouraged to bring their old electronics from home.

Acceptable items:
  • Computers, laptops, and accessories
  • Routers, switches, and modems
  • Telephones, cellphones, and video devices
  • Printers, scanners, and ink cartridges
  • CRT TVs and monitors up to 50”, cable boxes, DVD and VHS players
  • Audio equipment
  • Rechargeable batteries (no alkaline batteries)
  • Electronic components and metals

Personal electronic materials will be collected by ExxonMobil’s e-waste disposal partner, CompuCycle,
at the intersection of Holzwarth and Wellness Drive.

On the day of the collection, members of the community who want to drop off electronics should
follow traffic directions and stay in the far left lane to avoid turning into the campus. Electronic materials should preferably be in the trunk, clearly separated from any other belongings so CompuCycle can easily remove the materials while drivers remain in their vehicles.
