THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (October 27, 2022) – The Township invites residents to celebrate America Recycles Day by bringing select items for a free, one-day collection at the 3R Recycling Drive-thru located at The Woodlands High School on Saturday, November 12, 2022, 9 a.m. to noon. The items collected at this event do not belong in your curbside recycling cart but can be recycled at this event or at a local drop-off location year-round.
This year’s Village Recycling Challenge item is light bulbs. Bring intact incandescent, compact fluorescent (CFL) and LED light bulbs to help your village win scholarship money. This friendly competition awards funds donated by The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N. to villages with the highest participation.
Guidelines for collection: Collect bulbs in a box and label with your village’s name, and make sure there are no broken bulbs or tubes over 4 feet. Bag or box other like items together and place in your trunk or back seat. Volunteers provide a full-service drive-thru; please stay in your vehicle. No businesses’ items accepted.
Please note, most of these items can be recycled year-round at participating locations in The Woodlands. Check out the Recycle More Guide for a list of convenient drop-off locations at www.thewoodlandtownship-tx.gov/recyclemore.
The 3R Recycling Drive-thru is hosted by The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department and sponsored by Chevron Phillips Chemical, H-E-B, Howard Hughes, Waste Management, The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N. and Woodlands Water.
