Players for the Planet

Thank you for joining us for the 6th Annual PNC/Players for the Planet E-Waste Recycling Drive

It's a new record... nearly 200,000 pounds of obsolete computers, printers, monitors and televisions were recycled at the 6th Annual Players for the Planet e-waste drive May 14-17.

Special thanks for Reds players Jay Bruce, Tony Cingrani and Todd Frazier and sportscaster Marty Brennaman for helping us unload some of the 2200+ cars and trucks that dropped off their old electronic items over the four day drive. Volunteers from PNC Bank, Cincinnati Bell and CBTS Duke Energy, Macy's, Bishop Brossart High School, Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste, Campbell County Solid Waste, Rumpke, Kroger, the City of Cincinnati Office of Environment and Sustainability, Target and Green Umbrella helped to fill 8 tractor trailer and 6 box trucks full of items that would likely have ended up in area landfills.

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.
