ATLANTA, November 10, 2009 – Call2Recycle®, the only free rechargeable battery and cellphone collection program in North America, today announced that Battery Pack Rebuilders LLC has recycled more than 7.5 tons (15,000 pounds) of rechargeable batteries since joining the Call2Recycle program in 2005. The amount of batteries collected is equivalent to the weight of about three mini-vans.
“There is a deep satisfaction that comes with knowing our organization has kept 7.5 tons of batteries out of Washington State’s landfills, just by taking responsibility for our actions,” said Celaine Hadley, Owner of Battery Pack Rebuilders. “Call2Recycle makes protecting the environment a hassle-free process, and we hope to set an example in our community and our state to encourage other businesses to avoid unnecessary waste. We could not offer our services without the Call2Recycle program.”
“It’s exciting to watch businesses like Battery Pack Rebuilders see tangible results of their diligent recycling efforts,” said Linda Gabor, VP of Marketing and Account Management of RBRC, which operates Call2Recycle. “Businesses that have made a commitment to environmental sustainability should be commended for developing green business practices that make our communities a safer, more enjoyable place to live and work.”
Battery Pack Rebuilders sends less than 10 pounds of waste to landfills each week, due to their policy to reuse and recycle used materials.
