From my colleague Michael “Mando” Anderson

Earlier today, Jay Bruce, Ryan Hanigan and Marty Brennaman greeted recyclers at the 4th annual PNC/Players For The Planet E-Waste Recycling Drive.

Over 400 cars dropped off electronic waste at the PNC Bank at the Anderson Town Center.

Reds fans have additional opportunities to recycle e-waste this weekend:

Saturday, April 20, 2013 – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• PNC Bank, Glenway Crossing Branch, 5535 Glenway Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45211

Sunday, April 21, 2013 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
• Kroger Marketplace Newport, 130 Pavilion Parkway, Newport, KY 41071

The first 200 cars at each event will receive two View Level tickets to an upcoming 2013 regular season Reds game, while supplies last.

Players For The Planet will accept televisions, radios, VCRs, computer monitors, personal computers, hard drives and many other electronics. For a full list of acceptable items, please visit:

A donation of $10 per car is suggested to offset the recycling costs.

Cintas file and paper shredding services will be on-site Sunday.

Sponsors who make this event possible include PNC Bank, Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions, Duke Energy, Rumpke Consolidated Companies, Cohen, Cintas Corporation and Kroger.
