Battery Recycling for Electronics

Recycle your portable rechargeable batteries to conserve natural resources, to prevent rechargeable batteries from entering the solid waste stream, and ultimately, to preserve our environment.

The Power Tool Institute says that batteries can be recycled by depositing them into battery collection boxes at Home Depot stores in the U.S. and Canada. Or to find a collection site near you, visit www.rbrc.org or call the consumer help line, 1-800-8-BATTERY.

Information about battery recycling is available from:

Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation – www.rbrc.org.
