Ohio Valley Goodwill Hosts First Ever Electronics Recycling Celebration

Cincinnati, OH ·· April 21, 2014 .. Ohio Valley Goodwill is excited to announce that the organization is hosting its first-ever “Goodwill Earth Day Electronics Recycling Celebration” on Sunday, April 27th from 12 noon until 6:00 pm at its 10600 Springfield Pike headquarters in the village of Woodlawn. In partnership with Goodwill recycling vendor, E-Waste Systems, Goodwill looks forward to the event which will offer Greater Cincinnati residents the opportunity to drop off unwanted computers and other electronic items FREE of charge and also, to recycle responsibly. Goodwill is actually very committed to environmental stewardship and as such helps to recycle more than 43,000,000 lbs. of donated items every year diverting them from area landfills.

Ohio Valley Goodwill’s recent partnership with E-Waste Systems provided the opportunity to co-sponsor a recycling event that would promote not only Green living practices but also, help to promote Goodwill’s commitment to responsible recycling and build awareness of how donors can support that cause. The best part is, it’s very easy! Just load your old computer and unwanted electronic equipment in a box and bring it to Goodwill’s 10600 Springfield Pike location on Sunday, April 27th from 12 noon until 6:00 pm. Donors will receive a very sincere “Thank You” and upon request, a receipt for their generous donation.

Ohio Valley Goodwill provides skill training, employment and personal enrichment programs for individuals with disabilities, our nation’s veterans and at-risk youth. In 2013, Goodwill served more than 3100 people and helped 947 get jobs in the Greater Cincinnati community. It is donations to Ohio Valley Goodwill that has made this mission of service possible for the past almost 100 years.

Goodwill looks forward to hosting it’s 1st-ever “Goodwill Earth Day Electronics Recycling Celebration” on Sunday, April 27th from 12 noon until 6:00 pm at its 10600 Springfield Pike location.
