Players for the Planet E-Waste Drives

Baseball season is in full swing, with my beloved Indians in first place! (What can I say, I am from Cleveland). The Cincinnati Reds are rockin out this year as well, not just on the field, but for Earth Month as well. Read the following press release for details on today and tomorrow's e-waste drives for "Players for the Planet" -

Reds players Jay Bruce, Drew Stubbs and Ryan Hanigan and Players for the Planet have joined forces with Global Environmental Services and many of Cincinnati’s leading corporations for the second annual PNC/Players for the Planet E-Waste Recycling Drive to provide an easy and convenient way for Reds fans and residents of Greater Cincinnati to recycle old electronics. The public is encouraged to visit the two PNC Bank locations with electronic waste items for recycling.
