Amazing Spaces® Storage Centers is Recognized by Mayor Parker a Valuable Partner in the New DROPoff Houston e-Waste Recycling Program

Houston, TX, October 11, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Yesterday morning Houston Mayor, Annise Parker, held a press conference announcing a partnership between the City of Houston, CompuCycle, GREENspot DROPoff, and a select handful of local self storage facilities that will work together to provide a more comprehensive electronics waste stewardship program for the residents of Greater Houston.

Amazing Spaces Storage Centers welcomes the partnership as they celebrate their second year participating in the GREENspot DROPoff program, a free e-waste recycling program, now officially partnering with the City of Houston and CompuCycle. To date, Amazing Spaces’ four Houston locations have collected a combined total of 92,439 lbs. of electronic waste keeping harmful materials out of our landfills and streams.

Amazing Spaces’ Vice President, Kathy Tautenhahn, says, “The communities we serve are thrilled that they can easily drop off their old electronics at any of our four locations with the knowledge that their e-waste will be recycled in a safe way rather than go into a landfill potentially releasing toxic chemicals into the environment. Over the past year, since we started the program, we’ve heard overwhelmingly positive feedback from the people who have taken advantage of our e-waste dropoff option. We are happy that our partnership with GREENspot DROPoff provides the community this much needed service.” Since June of 2012, Amazing Spaces has provided a storage space for members of the community to conveniently drop off old electronics with the peace of mind that their e-waste will be recycled properly.

Once the e-waste drop-offs accumulate, CompuCycle, a certified e-waste recycler, picks up the material to be processed at their facility. CompuCycle is R2 certified meaning that they follow strict compliances including ensuring secure data destruction, managing materials that pose a threat to the environment and worker safety, and practicing the remarketing and reuse of retired electronics.

Here are some examples items that are recycled with the GREENspot Program: Televisions | Fax Machines | Computer Monitors | DVD Players | Laptops | VCR / Beta | Keyboards | Cables & Cords Printers | Radios | Computer Mice | Stereo Components | Hard Drives | Tape & Zip Drives
