Congressman Gene Green to Create Jobs With New E-Waste Bill

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) -  E-Waste management company, Technocycle, welcomes Congressman Gene Green (D-TX-29) at the Technocycle facility. Technocycle supports H.R. 6252, The Responsible Electronics Recycling Act which Rep. Green introduced September 29, 2010.

"This bill will protect the environment and create jobs here in the U.S. by stopping the flow of E-Waste to developing countries," states Technocycle president Mike Buckles. "If this bill were passed into law today, we would have to double or triple our workforce. We are here as proof that Congressman Green is hard at work to produce Green jobs here in Texas." 

Mona Metzger of the Houston Green Scene is excited to see this legislation coming from Houston, "Gene Green elevates Houston as a Green City."

The Responsible Electronics Recycling Act is supported by the Texas Campaign for the Environment, the Electronics TakeBack Coalition, Natural Resources Defense Council, and corporations like Dell, Apple, and Samsung.
