Lone Star College-Kingwood’s Introduction to Computers Honors Class will collect unwanted electronics through April 22.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-1:15 p.m., the community can bring old and broken computers, computer parts and monitors, printers/scanners, keyboards, mice, and speakers to the college. A separate community e-waste drive will be held on April 20 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. All collection will take place at the circular drive in front of the college’s Performing Arts Center located on Royston Road.
“Recycling these electronics ensures that harmful contents such as mercury and lead are not introduced into the environment,” said George Martin, LSC-Kingwood honors student.
The campus will also accept televisions (tube and flat panel), phones and cell phones, radios, fax machines, microwaves, and other related electrical devices. Electronics are generally not reused and all e-wastes will be given to the Texas Green Electronics Recycling Company, R-2 certified.
