Texas Commission on Environmental Quality – TCEQ

The history of natural resource protection by the State of Texas is one of gradual evolution from protecting the right of access to natural resources (principally surface water) to a broader role in protecting public health and conserving natural resources for future generations of Texans.
We encourage Texans to support the state’s economy and environment by repairing, reselling, donating, or recycling used electronics. Choosing to recycle used electronics over landfill disposal reduces the need to process raw materials for new products.
“The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality strives to protect our state’s public health and natural resources consistent with sustainable economic development. Our goal is clean air, clean water, and the safe management of waste.”
