The Woodlands Township Launches New Tennis Ball Recycling Program
THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodlands Township has launched a new tennis ball recycling program in partnership with RecycleBalls, a nonprofit powered by Wilson, to divert waste from landfills. Players can now conveniently recycle tennis balls in the green RecycleBalls bins at five different locations in The Woodlands.
With tennis balls taking more than 400 years to decompose in the landfill, tennis players in The Woodlands are encouraged to “play it green” and start recycling their tennis balls with RecycleBalls.
Please note tennis balls can only be recycled through these special collection bins; they are NOT accepted in curbside recycling carts. Tennis ball canisters are recyclable curbside only if the metal ring is separated from the plastic container.
For more information about the new tennis ball recycling program, please contact the Tennis Program Coordinator at Bear Branch Recreation Center at 281-210-3950.
