E-cycle this Saturday and Meet Phillies Closer Ryan Madson

June 22, 2011

As a gargantuan baseball fan, I already esteemed the Phillies for their stacked, entertaining roster (R2C2!) and the beautiful ballpark they’ve turned into a gastropub. (They’ve been recognized by the Food Network for offering gourmet, vegetarian and gluten-free options along with various local craftbrews.) But additional plaudits are due for their emergence as the greenest team in baseball. (Their green initiatives range from composting food waste to powering the stadium with 100% renewable energy.)

This Saturday, June 25, the Phillies and Waste Management are hosting the first Red Goes Green eCycle Event at Citizens Bank Park. From 8–11 a.m., fans can bring used electronics and have them recycled, free of charge (up to two items per person) at Lot S.

The first 200 participants will receive an autographed photo card from Phillies pitcher [and current closer!] Ryan Madson, and all participants will get a 10% discount at the Majestic Clubhouse Store!

Examples of items you can recycle include: small televisions, computer CPUs, monitors, and peripherals; VCRs, copiers, stereo equipment and radios, calculators, cell phones, scanners, fax machines and telephones. NOT accepted are console televisions, microwave ovens, large office copiers and other items too large for one person to carry.

For questions about items that can be recycled, contact John Hambrose, Community Relations Coordinator, Waste Management at (570) 562-1600 ext. 244 or email

    Hey Josh,

    There weren’t any comments. So I felt bad.

    I noticed that this blog talks about food and baseball a lot.

    I like that they have the e-cycle drive before the game…seems like they should do it all the time. If my older electronics still work, I usually try to give them away on craigslist, but for broken stuff it’s not the easiest thing to find and get to a recycling center that takes it.
