Cohen Recycling Electronic Drop-Off Event

Bengals Players Support America Recycles Day

The Cincinnati Bengals are teaming up with Cohen Recycling to honor America Recycles Day to sponsor an electronic recycling event at Longworth Hall.

This drop-off gives Bengals fans an opportunity to recycle all your unwanted electronics safely -- keeping harmful materials out of landfills; and securely -- ensuring no data is recoverable.

The event will take place on Nov. 16, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the lot of Longworth Hall.

Dave Lapham, Margus Hunt and a teammate or 2 will be on hand for autographs and pictures between 11:30 and 12:30 during the event. Plus, everyone recycling items can also enter for a chance to win many great prizes.

One lucky recycler will win VIP experience with club seats and sideline passes when the Bengals host the Ravens on Dec. 29. Other prizes include a meet and greet with Dave Lapham plus dinner at Holy Grail during his radio show December 23, autographed footballs and Bengals Pro-shop gear.

Upon arriving at Longworth Hall, Cohen will be on hand to unload your car for you. Items accepted include computer towers, laptops, cell phones, cords, wires and just about anything else with an on/off switch.

E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the world. Every year, nearly 50 million metric tons of electronics are thrown away, many of which contain lead, cadmium, mercury, and other hazardous elements that can pollute the air, contaminate soil, and leach into water supplies. Health risks range from kidney disease to brain damage and other health dangers.

"I look forward to meeting Bengals fans and hope many take advantage of this great opportunity to recycle their unwanted electronic devises," said radio personality and former Bengal Dave Lapham.

A small fee will be applied to recycle CRT monitors ($5), and tube/ projector TVs (under 32" are $10, over 32" are $20). All other electronics are recycled free of charge.
