    Recycling Your Cell Phones:
    If you are bringing in cell phones for recycling, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make sure the cell service is shut off on the phone. Most cell phones offer a "master reset" feature in the menu, which will wipe all data (contacts, recent calls, etc) from the phone and restore it to a factory state.

    Recycling Your Computers - Hard Drives:
    If you are bringing your computer from home for recycling and are worried about personal contents in your hard drive, you have THREE options:
    1. Remove the hard drive (and smash it up or use it in your new computer)
    2. Erase your hard drive (format it using any variety of programs; e.g., boot-n-nuke)
    3. Leave the hard drive in the computer. The hard drives in all computers dropped off at ABC-13 during the drive will be recycled by ABC-13 vendor CompuCycle, The hard drives will be destroyed and shredded at vendor's facilities, using industrial hard drive shredders.

    Recycling TVs, Household & Other Electronics
    The following items can be conveniently recycled at the City of Houston's Westpark Recycling Center, located at Westpark and Fountainview. The Center offers convenient drive-through services for the drop-off of household electronics (toasters, grills, vacuum cleaners), DVD players, stereos, game consoles, VHS decks and satellite receivers - as well as computer-related items. For more information, click on the following link: City of Houston eGovernment Center.

    KTRK Television Inc is not responsible for donated computer equipment or its handling by any third-party recycling companies or organizations.

    Excellent link, rbinck!

    It is great to see some real progress being made to spread the Green word. KTRK appears to be a leader amongst local newscasters.
