Recycling Drive Saves Tons of Donated E-Waste ... Literally

POSTED UNDER Recycling & Waste Reduction

Did you know over 70 percent of electronic waste ends up in landfills? Even the most conscientious and earth-friendly of us don’t – nor do we really know how or where to recycle our used technology. But better late than never for us to find out and work to drop that percentage. Macy’s has teamed up with co-sponsors for years to fund, volunteer and promote Players for the Planet’s E-Waste Recycling Drive.

With help from several co-sponsors, including the Cincinnati Reds, as well as an impressive amount of donors, we were able to save over 148,000 pounds of e-waste from the landfills. That amounts to about 75 tons of technology - unbelievable. We were able to fill up nine full-size trailers.

Reds’ third baseman Todd Frazier even showed up to lend a helping hand. Leave it to the Reds to make a green difference!

The Fifth Annual E-Waste Recycling Drive was one of the largest, if not the largest, electronic recycling events ever held. It’s amazing how simple recycling these materials can be when people get the word out. Don’t let your once cutting-edge technology go to waste in a landfill. Give it new life - find an electronics recycling drop-off near you.
