LSC-Kingwood will be the site of a used electronics drive April 1 – 17, 2014. The Honors Introduction to Computers class will be collecting old and broken computers, computer parts and peripherals including monitors, printers/scanners, keyboards, mice, and speakers, televisions, phones, cell phones, radios, fax machines, microwaves and related devices.
“Recycling these no longer used devices ensures that they are reused or responsibly recycled and that harmful contents such as mercury and lead are not introduced into our environment,” stated Margaretha Johnson, professor of computer information technology who heads this project.
The collection will be held behind the Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Royston Drive on Tuesday and Thursdays from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
For more information on the used electronics drive, contact Professor Johnson at 281-312-1603.
