BALTIMORE, MD – DeWalt, a manufacturer of industrial power tools, announced National Power Tool Battery Recycling Month. During the month of April, users who recycle any power tool battery at one of DeWalt’s 87 service centers will receive a $10 discount on battery purchases. The company executed a similar promotion in October 2008 and collected more than 23,500 pounds of rechargeable batteries.

The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corp. (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 service centers. Users can recycle Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cad), 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.
