Recycle electronics, get free Reds tickets


You can get two free Reds tickets simply by donating your old televisions, personal computers, monitors, small home appliances and other electronics for recycling.

The first 200 cars at the Cincinnati Reds and Players for the Planet E-Waste Recycling Drives will receive a pair of tickets to a regular season Reds game while supplies last.

The sixth annual event kicks off Thursday and will go through Sunday.
