Got E-Waste? Get Rid of it This Weekend

Courtesy WLWT.
According to the EPA, an estimated 600,000 tons of monitors, 67,000 tons of computer mice and keyboards and 20,000 tons of mobile devices are disposed of each year in the United States. Just a small percentage of that and other electronic waste, or e-waste, is recycled. But you can do your part to properly, and safely, recycle your old electronic products.

On Sunday, May 17 from 10-2 at Target in the Newport Pavilion the Cincinnati Reds and Players For The Planet are joining forces once again with Cohen Recycling and many of Cincinnati'’s leading corporations for the sixth annual PNC/Players For The Planet E-Waste Recycling Drives. Joining us to discuss e-waste recycling are  Steve Skelly from Players for the Planet, and from Cohen USA, Adam Dumes.



The PNC/Players For The Planet E-Waste Recycling Drives provide an easy way for Reds fans and residents of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky to recycle old electronics. The first 200 cars at each event will receive two free Reds tickets to a 2015 regular season Reds game, while supplies last. 

A minimum donation of $10 per car is suggested to offset the recycling costs and to benefit the Reds Community Fund. Players For The Planet will accept televisions, personal computers, cell phones, monitors, small home appliances and many other electronics. For a full list of acceptable items, please visit: www.cohenusa.com/reds.

Sunday, May 17, 2015 - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.: Target - Newport Pavilion, 160 Pavilion Parkway, Newport, KY 41071
