Recycling Batteries

You can click here to find the store nearest you. It's an easy way to protect our environment and conserve Earth's natural resources. By recycling the batteries from your cordless or wireless phone, laptop, camcorder or power tools, materials can be reclaimed to make stainless steel products and new batteries.

RBRC (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) will recycle Ni-Cd, NiMH, Lithium-ion, and Lithium-ion-polymer batteries. They will also recycle Lead-acid batteries up to 2 lbs. / 1 kg per battery. They do not recycle primary batteries, rechargeable alkalines or lead-acid batteries weighing more than 2 lbs. / 1 kg each.
