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
"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."
