PNC, The Cincinnati Reds and Cohen Recycling are joining forces again with many of Cincinnati's leading corporations for the 9th annual PNC/Reds E-Waste Recycling Drive on May 3-5, 2018. 

The e-waste recycling drive provides a safe and easy opportunity for Reds fans and residents of Greater Cincinnati to recycle old electronics responsibly.

The public is encouraged to visit three convenient locations with their electronic waste for recycling:

Thursday, May 3 (7 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
• PNC Bank/Kroger - Northgate Square: 9650 Colerain Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45251

Friday, May 4 (7 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
• PNC Bank - Mason/Deerfield Township: 5283 Bowen Drive, Mason, OH 45040

Saturday, May 5 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
• PNC Bank/Kroger - Hyde Park Plaza: 3740 Paxton Road, Cincinnati, OH 45209

Accepted e-waste items include: personal computers, cell phones, cords, monitors, televisions, small home appliances and most other electronics. The full list of acceptable electronics is listed at: cohenusa.com/reds.

The first 500 cars at each event will receive two free tickets to a select 2018 regular season Reds game. 

A minimum donation of $10 per car is suggested to offset recycling costs and to benefit the Reds Community Fund. Reds players and personalities will be on hand to assist and meet recyclers.

Last year, more than 170,000 pounds of obsolete computers, printers, monitors, televisions and other e-waste was collected over three days. And over the past eight years of the event, Reds fans have recycled and helped divert more than one million pounds of potentially hazardous materials from local landfills.

Sponsors who make this event possible include PNC, Cohen Recycling, CBTS, Duke Energy, Kroger, Macy's and TriHealth. 

Organizing partners include Green Umbrella, City of Cincinnati Office of Environment & Sustainability, Hamilton County Recycling & Solid Waste, Warren County Solid Waste Management and the City of Mason.
