They will take public comment on Deepwater Horizon spill recovery plans on March 12, at the Pasadena Convention Center, from 6-8 PM, doors open at 5:15 PM.

Computer manufacturers reported collecting more than 43.8 million pounds of electronics from Jan. 1, 2012, through Dec. 31, 2012. The TCEQ allowed computer manufacturers to report other electronics collected, not just the computer equipment covered under the program.
Currently, 90 manufacturers representing 133 brands are participating in the computer recycling program. As part of the program, computer manufacturers collected more than 24 million pounds of covered computer equipment in 2012. Of that collected weight, more than 20 million pounds were recycled and 3.7 million pounds were reused. Read the entire report.
Once a year, thousands of volunteers gather along the Texas waterways to do their part in cleaning up the environment and participate in the largest statewide event to educate the public about the importance of our water resources. On March 23, YOU can join them and clean it like you mean it!

The TCEQ oversees the collection, processing, and recycling or disposal of over 24 million tires discarded each year in Texas. Proper management of used and scrap tires benefits the environment and public health. Anyone who stores more than 500 scrap tires must register with the TCEQ; however, the scrap tire rules apply to all generators and handlers, regardless of whether they are registered.
