Electronic Recycling Day in Clinton County June 29th!

The Clinton Streamkeepers and organizations of the Clinton County Green Alliance in partnership with Cohen Recycling announce a Clinton County Electronics Recycling Event, Saturday June 29th from 9am to 12noon in the parking lot out front of Southern State Community College, 1850 Davids Drive in Wilmington. 

Cohen staff will be on hand to receive electronic waste for recycling, with almost any electronic item being accepted (a list of items is located at, there is a small fee for the disposal of CRT Computer Monitors of $5 each, Tube TVs under 32” of $10 each, and Tube TVs 32” and over of $20 each due to the lead recovery process required for these components.

Electronic waste can have serious health and environmental impacts, as modern technology often has heavy metals, mercury and lead which is dangerous to the environment and discarding electronics can also present a variety of privacy, security, and intellectual property concerns but Cohen completely dismantles and shreds all hard drives and other materials at their secure facility in Middletown, ensuring both privacy and environmental safety of the materials. 

Cohen is regional recycler with 20 locations throughout Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee and a major electronics recycling using the R2 certification process ensuring that electronic wastes do not end up as hazardous pollutants in the environment or in a landfill.
