Organization: Cincinnati Recycling & Reuse Hub
The Cincinnati Recycling & Reuse Hub will have their last electronics recycling drop-off event of the year on Saturday, September 25th from 10 AM - 2 PM at their warehouse, 911 Evans Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45204. If you are unable to attend the event, electronics will also be accepted during regular Hub business hours throughout the fall and winter.
Residents from all areas of the Tri-State are encouraged to attend. CASH ONLY. FEES are required for all electronic items, batteries and bulbs -- they pay for the responsible disposal of the hazardous waste components of these items and help cover a small amount of the Hub's operating costs.

-$25 for each small tv/monitor
-$35 for each large tv/monitor
-$15 each for small appliances with refrigerants

RecycleForce, a non-profit from Indianapolis, will de-manufacture items and shred all hard drives to address any privacy concerns. The plastics, glass, and metals are then sold to build new items, while all toxic elements, such as lead and mercury, are disposed of properly to avoid environmental contamination. COVID protocols will be in place and all individuals are required to socially distance and wear face masks.
The Hub is a 501(c)(3) non-profit made up of volunteers who want to increase reuse and recycling rates for the Greater Cincinnati Area. Donations to the Hub help cover operational expenses so that they can continue to provide services to the community. Materials handling equipment, safety equipment, and supplies for the Hub’s 2021 electronics drop-off days were provided in part by a grant from the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District.
Please contact the Hub at 513-538-3798 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or if you have questions.
COVID protocols will be in place; all individuals dropping items off must remain in their vehicles and wear face masks when interacting with Hub volunteers.
All hard drives and data cards for phones will be shredded by a certified recycler (RecycleForce) to address privacy concerns.
