Fifth Third Bank, a recognized leader in environmental sustainability, hosted two electronic waste recycling events for its employees on Oct. 6. The events were held at the Company’s Madisonville Operations Center in Cincinnati and its Corporate Service Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“We are proud to offer our employees the opportunity to safely recycle their unused electronic materials and devices,” said Jeremy Faust, director of operational sustainability at Fifth Third Bank. “Our employees care about our environment and appreciate that we host these events to facilitate a place to conveniently drop off their old computers, tablets and phones and keep them out of the landfill.”
Partnering with Cobalt Recycling in Madisonville and Comprenew in Grand Rapids, Bank volunteers helped to unload and sort dropped-off items, which also included unwanted paint and paper for reuse and/or recycling. In Madisonville alone, more than 6,300 pounds of electronics were collected to be recycled.
