Waste Management Announces Recycling Pilot

Danielle Jackson

Houston -- Waste Management Inc. has announced a residential electronics recycling pilot program with the city of Houston.

Under the program, the City's Environmental Service Center and the Westpark Consumer Recycling Center will accept personal computers, monitors, cell phones without batteries, televisions, printers, keyboards, mice, scanners, fax machines, telephones, VCRs and smaller consumer electronics.

Once collected, the items will be transported to Waste Management's Atascocita Recycle America facility in Humble, Texas. The company then will disassemble the electronics and transport about half of the materials to recyclers in North America and the remaining half to end-markets in Europe and Asia.
