BALTIMORE - DeWalt, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, has announced National Power Tool Battery Recycling Month. During the month of October, users who recycle any power tool battery at one of DeWalt’s 87 service centers will receive a $10 discount on battery purchases.

The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), a non-profit public service organization dedicated to recycling used rechargeable batteries and old cell phones, has provided DeWalt with recycling bins to place in each of its 87 service centers. (To find a service center near you, visit www.dewalt.com/us/service/center_finder.asp.) Users can recycle nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH), and lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries from any battery manufacturer at service center locations nationwide. RBRC will then collect the batteries and recycle them for future use through its Call2Recycle™ program.

As a way to generate awareness and increase participation in the program, DeWalt will provide a $10 discount for battery purchases to users who recycle their batteries during the month of October.

“As a leading manufacturer of cordless power tools, DeWalt has grown its relationship with RBRC throughout the years and is pleased to announce its support of power tool recycling month,” said Jason McNeil, DeWalt product manager. “Recycling batteries is environmentally responsible and we are dedicated to making this program a success. We feel that providing an incentive to end users is a great way to bring focus to this important initiative and make recycling batteries a long term habit for contractors.”

DeWalt said that, to date, it has collected more than 3,792,000 pounds of rechargeable batteries.
