Battery Group Expands the “Charge Up to Recycle!” Program
ATLANTA, September 10, 2000 — The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) will promote their expanded battery recycling program at the National Recycling Coalition’s (NRC) 19th Annual Congress & Exposition during September 10-13, 2000 at the Charlotte Congress Center, Charlotte, NC, Booth #425.
While exhibiting at the conference, RBRC will be featured as a participant of the National Recycling Challenge, an initiative of the White House Task Force on Waste Prevention and Recycling. RBRC is also a national sponsor for America Recycles Day and will encourage all Americans to Charge Up to Recycle!
RBRC is a nonprofit public service organization dedicated to Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd) rechargeable battery recycling in the U.S. and Canada. Charge Up to Recycle! is a battery-recycling program funded by more than 300 manufacturers and marketers of portable rechargeable batteries and products. These companies are committed to preserving the environment and pay a fee to place the RBRC Battery Recycling Seal on Ni-Cd batteries and product packaging.
Committed to conserving the environment, RBRC will expand its existing battery recycling program beginning January 2001. The expanded program will include Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) and Lithium Ion (Li-ion) rechargeable batteries, commonly found in cellular phones, laptop computers and other portable electronic products. In addition, Small Sealed Lead Acid (Pb) rechargeable batteries, which power camcorders and other portable electronic products will be recycled.
