Electronic Recycling:

Did you know that state law requires computer manufacturers to offer Texas consumers free and convenient computer equipment recycling? Thanks to a 2008 state law, computer manufacturers are responsible for recycling the following items in Texas: desktop and laptop computers, monitors (display devices without a tuner), and the accompanying keyboard and mouse made by the same manufacturer. This program applies to personal and home business computers only, and manufacturers are responsible for recycling only their own brands.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and Take Care of Texas provide valuable educational resources about computer recycling in the state of Texas. By visiting the TCEQ link below, you can find important articles about E-recycling, a directory of places you can take your electronic equipment to, as well as e-recycling flyers and brochures to share with your friends- all in the same place! http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/assistance/P2Recycle/electronics/consumer-info.html
