Employees of Fifth Third Bank recycled nearly 8,000 pounds of materials at two employee electronics waste events in September. The annual events were hosted by Fifth Third and local waste recycling companies to give employees an easy way to recycle their electronics and avoid disposal in a landfill.

The first event was held at the Fifth Third Corporate Service Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan on September 16 in collaboration with e-waste recycler, Comprenew. In addition to electronics, employees could also submit paper documents to be securely shredded and recycled.

At the second event, held on the Madisonville campus of Cincinnati on September 23, employees brought in 3,447 pounds of material to be recycled. Fifth Third collaborated with Cobalt to recycle electronics, paper and unused paint. The paint was donated to a local nonprofit, Matthew 25: Ministries, that re-mixes and donates the paint for use in developing communities.
