CINCINNATI - PNC, the Reds and Players For The Planet are joining forces again with Cohen Recycling and many of Cincinnati's leading corporations for the 6th annual PNC/Players For The Planet E-Waste Recycling Drives on May 14-17. 

The PNC/Players For The Planet E-Waste Recycling Drives provide an easy way for Reds fans and residents of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky to recycle old electronics. 

The first 200 cars at each event will receive two free tickets to a select 2015 regular season Reds game, while supplies last. 

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

Thursday, May 14, 2015 - 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
