Are Your Batteries “Juice-less?”
ATLANTA, April 08, 2002 — According to a new survey by the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), consumers have an average of five or more cordless products in their homes. This list includes cordless power tools, cordless and cellular phones, camcorders, and even electric toothbrushes and mini vacuums.
Our portable lifestyle is powered in large part by rechargeable batteries. But what do you do when the rechargeable batteries that power these products can no longer hold a charge? Did you know that these batteries can and should be recycled? The RBRC survey found that given the opportunity, 63% of respondents would recycle them at convenient retail locations when purchasing replacement batteries, which is why RBRC is sponsoring Battery Check Week.
Battery Check Week is a national call-to-action that encourages consumers to check the rechargeable batteries that power their cordless products, and if they can no longer hold a charge, to recycle them.
The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) is a non-profit dedicated to recycling rechargeable batteries, working with retailers, businesses and community programs to set up battery recycling programs.
Battery Check Week is April 22-28, 2002Share
