Baltimore-based DeWalt, manufacturer of industrial power tools, has announced the National Power Tool Battery Recycling Month. During the month of October, users who recycle any power tool battery at one of the company’s 87 service centers will receive a $10 discount on battery purchases.
The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corp., Atlanta, a non-profit public service organization dedicated to recycling used rechargeable batteries and old cell phones, has provided DeWalt with recycling bins to place in each of its 87 service centers. Users can recycle nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH), and lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries from any battery manufacturer at service center locations nationwide. RBRC will then collect the batteries and recycle them for future use through its “Call2Recycle” program.
