Recycling your rechargeable batteries and cell phones is easier than you may think!
Many manufacturers and retail stores have taken steps to provide an easy, convenient opportunity for you to get your rechargeable batteries and cell phones out of the waste stream and into the recycling stream, with no cost to you.
According to the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), consumers use an average of six wireless products in their daily lives and cell phones are replaced every 18 to 24 months.
The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that there are currently 100 million cell phones ready for end of life management. This adds up to a considerable waste stream issue. The benefits of getting into the recycling stream include:
Plug-in To eCycling
EPA has launched a comprehensive recycling program called Plug-in to eCycling partnering with leading cell phone manufacturers, service providers, and retailers to encourage Americans to recycle their cell phones and accessories.
