Recycle Those Rechargeables

Atlanta, GA— Many people may not know that the rechargeable batteries that power the portable electronics products they use everyday, such as cellular and cordless phones, digital cameras, laptop computers, camcorders, electric toothbrushes, electric shavers and cordless power tools, can and should be recycled when they can no longer hold a charge. Before retiring old household portables, take a minute to check for and remove any used rechargeable batteries.

According to The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) there are over 30,000 retail and community battery collection locations throughout the U.S. and Canada that participate in RBRC's battery recycling program Charge Up to Recycle! (R). National U.S. retail stores participating in the program include: Batteries Plus, Best Buy, Black & Decker, Cingular Wireless, Circuit City, The Home Depot, RadioShack, Sears, Staples, Target, Verizon Wireless and Wal-Mart.

Consumers can call 1-800-8-BATTERY or go to rbrc.org to find a list of nearby drop off locations. All types of rechargeable batteries found in portable electronic products can be recycled: Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) and Small Sealed Lead (Pb) (weighing less than 2 lbs. or 1 kg.).
