CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Two Tri-State businesses collected electronic devices to be recycled on Saturday.

Whole Foods Market at Rookwood Commons took part in the electronics recycling event in honor of Earth Day. Residents were encouraged to participate by bringing computers, printers, cell phones and more. Televisions were also accepted for a flat fee of $10 with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Keep Cincinnati Beautiful.
