Cincinnati electronic waste recycler E-Waste Systems Inc. collected more than 20,000 pounds of used electronics April 27 through a partnership with Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries.

Area residents dropped off computers, TVs and other used electronic equipment at Ohio Valley Goodwill’s headquarters in Woodlawn for the first-ever Goodwill Earth Day Electronics Recycling Celebration, the company said in a news release.

The collaboration follows E-Waste Systems’ recycling partnership with the Ohio-based automotive glass division of Japan Asahi Glass Co. Ltd., which yielded 60,000 pounds of e-waste for recycling.

“The demands for proper recycling outlets, particularly for specialty items, are greater than ever,” said Julie Peterson, president of E-Waste Systems, in a statement. “There is still confusion on how to properly dispose of unwanted items. We are working to change all of that by building a network that will eventually integrate e-waste recycling as a fixture in our daily lives, in the way we have seen bottle and can recycling progress in past decades.”
