Players for the Planet

Join us for the 7th Annual PNC/Players for the Planet E-Waste Recycling Drive

Want to do something good for the environment, meet Reds players, and score tickets to a game?

From May 5-7, when you drop off your old electronics for recycling, you'll receive two free tickets* to a game at Great America Ball Park. Plus, we'll share tips for how you can make simple changes that benefit our environment, wherever you work, live or play. 

Players for the Planet is requesting a minimum donation of $10 per car to offset the recycling costs and benefit the Reds Community Fund.

*While Supplies last. One qualifying donation per car.

Cohen is a Proud Sponsor of the Cincinnati Reds and Players for the Planet

The largest family-owned metal and electronics recycler in the region, Cohen was one of the first US companies with the Responsible Recycling (R2) certification, which guarantees your electronics are recycled properly, and is now duel certified with the e-Stewards Certification.

We believe that the community where we live and work—and play—is vital to our health and well-being. And because the Cincinnati Reds do so much to help properly dispose of electronic waste (which is growing significantly every year), we are especially proud to be an official sponsor of the team.
