The Philadelphia Phillies and Waste Management teammed up to help you celebrate Earth Day by conserving resources by recycling all of the glass, metals and plastics in the old electronics cluttering your basement and garage.
On Saturday, April 21, 2012, the Phillies and Waste Management hosted their second annual Red Goes Green eCycle Event at Citizens Bank Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fans were invited to bring their used electronics to Lot S (enter off Pattison Avenue), and have them recycled free of charge. Representatives from the Department of Environmental Protection, Environmental Protection Agency, Natural Lands Trust and Philadelphia Streets Department will also be on site to provide information to residents.
Items that were recycled included televisions, computer CPUs, monitors, and peripherals; VCRs, copiers, stereo equipment and radios, calculators, cell phones, scanners, fax machines, telephones and most other items that plug in or are powered by batteries. These items were accepted from households and businesses with fewer than 50 employees. Larger businesses should contact Waste Management for additional electronics recycling information.
Large household appliances and appliances that use refrigerants, including refrigerators, air conditioners, freezers and dehumidifiers, were not accepted.
The first 200 participants received an autographed photo card from Phillies player Hunter Pence, and Phillies Ballgirls were in attendance. Participants also received a 10% discount to the Majestic Clubhouse Store that day.

Fans donated over two tons of used electronics at the event. Items included small televisions, computer CPUs and monitors, VCRs, copiers, and cell phones.
Fans can rest assured that the electronics donated will not end up in a landfill and that the glass, metals and plastics they contain will be reused.
