Jenny Baldwin is program manager for the environmental support services contract at NASA JSC.

“The last e-waste event that we did, we had over 500 cars that came through, so we usually have a very good response.”

Sims Recycling Solutions is sponsoring this year’s event and will recycle collected e-waste. Houston-based company Shred Pro will provide document-shredding services at the drop-off point.

The recycling event is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Space Center Houston parking lot from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday, November 5th. A full list of the types of e-waste that will be accepted for recycling is available online at www.nasa.gov.
