2023 Year in Review:
Missouri City's 10th Annual Electronics Recycling Event a Big Success, Diverts Over 28,000 Pounds of E-waste from Landfills
The 10th Annual Electronics Recycling Event on Saturday, February 18 was successful thanks to the combined efforts of Missouri City Green volunteers, the City of Missouri City, Missouri City Parks & Recreation Department and CompuCycle, an R2 Certified Recycler.
Over 450 people participated and recycled a whopping 28,813 pounds of unwanted, outdated, or broken electronics. These items will either be refurbished or dismantled to retrieve their valuable component parts, which will then be used in the manufacturing process.
A big thank you to those who donated generously towards future community clean-up events.
Fort Bend Youth In Philanthropy Joins Missouri City Green
for a Day of Environmental Action
A group of 14 passionate Fort Bend Youth In Philanthropy (YIP) students teamed up with Missouri City Green and City Forester Paul Wierzbicki to engage in a day of philanthropy on February 11. The student volunteers kicked off their morning by spreading mulch around the trees at Hunters Glen Park. Following this, the volunteers took a break to enjoy a lunch while the board members of Missouri City Green shared their organization's mission.
After lunch, the students continued their philanthropic efforts by adhering 35 storm drain markers to storm drain inlets in the Parkway Trails neighborhood. These markers served as a reminder to residents and yard crews that only rainwater should go down the drain. The day concluded with the volunteers creating 90 wildflower seed balls to distribute at the upcoming Edible Earth Fest.
