To speak with CompuCycle directly:
Used electronics collection events can be sponsored by private corporations, communities, or by local government. They reduce the amount of hazardous materials going to the landfill, which reduces the threat to humans and the environment. Electronics unable to be refurbished can be dismantled and stripped of the valuable resources contained within, such as various metals and plastics. Collection events allow refurbished electronics to be available at reduced prices, to the public. For electronic collection events in your area visit: Earth911
Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) sponsors a Municipal Solid Waste Grant program in the 13 county region through H-GAC in which electronic collection programs and projects are eligible for funding. Assistance from civic groups, grants, and local government, and private corporations may also be available.
