Staples Joins Other Retailers in the Collection of Rechargeable Batteries

Atlanta, GA— The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), a non-profit organization dedicated to recycling rechargeable batteries, announced the rollout of RBRC's battery recycling program in Staples stores throughout the United States.

Staples customers can now drop off their used rechargeable batteries at the store customer service desk, where the RBRC boxes will be located.

Additional national retailers that already participate in the RBRC program include Best Buy, Circuit City, The Home Depot, RadioShack, Sears, Target, Wal-Mart and many more.

"Our program with Staples marks the first time we've joined forces with a national office supply retailer," said Ralph Millard, executive vice president, RBRC. "Staples customers already know where to go for office supplies and business services, and it's now more convenient than ever for customers to stock up and be green at the same time!"

Many people don't know that the rechargeable batteries that power an ever-growing list of cordless electronics products can and should be recycled when they can no longer hold a charge. These products include cellular and cordless phones, digital cameras, laptop computers, portable DVD and CD players, PDAs, two-way radios, remote control toys, and cordless power tools.

"Rechargeable batteries power many of the electronic products that Staples offers every day, and we're now helping customers recycle these batteries responsibly at the end of their use," said Mark Buckley, vice president of environmental affairs at Staples. "Our new program with RBRC, the latest initiative in our overall environmental commitment, makes it easy for customers to 'close the product loop' whenever they visit their local Staples store."
