DEWALT and Call2Recycle Partner to Celebrate Earth Day – Offer Discounts for Recycling Rechargeable Batteries

ATLANTA (April 10, 2012) – DEWALT® is offering a discount on purchases of new DEWALT power tool batteries when customers recycle their rechargeable batteries. Call2Recycle®, North America’s only free battery and cell phone collection program, partners with DEWALT to offer battery recycling to its customers year-round. During April 2012, when customers drop off any brand rechargeable battery from a power tool such as a cordless drill, cordless screwdriver, cordless saw or cordless nailer at one of the company’s 77 service centers they will receive a 10 percent discount on their purchase of a new Porter Cable, Black and Decker, or DEWALT battery. (Purchase must be made at the same time the battery is brought in for recycling.)

“We’re excited to partner with Call2Recycle to reward our customers for properly disposing of their rechargeable batteries,” said Nate Pellerin, Marketing Manager of DEWALT Factory Service. “Our long-standing and continuing partnership with Call2Recycle is an important part of our commitment to environmental stewardship.”
