Call2Recycle.org has met their goal of recycling over 1 million pounds of rechargeable batteries as of October 1, 2010. Recycling goals were set back on July 21, 2010 and over 1.24 million pounds of batteries have been recycled and not dumped into landfills. This program shows everyone the ease of recycling and the importance of protecting our environment from toxic materials. Rechargeable batteries are a long-lasting and environmentally friendly power source for many electronic devices. Rechargeable batteries can be found in laptops, digital cameras, camcorders, cell phones, cordless phones, cordless power tools, UPS devices, and other electronics. Even though the goal of recycling 1 million pounds of batteries has been met, we ask that you continue to recycle your rechargeable batteries and do not throw them away in the trash.
More information on how Call2Recycle met their 1 million pound battery recycling goal can be found on their battery recycling Web site.
