The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling
Corporation) Seal on the nickel-cadmium battery (or
battery pack) indicates that the costs to recycle the
battery (or battery pack) at the end of its useful life have
already been paid by Black & Decker. In some areas, it
is illegal to place spent nickel-cadmium batteries in the
trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC program
provides an environmentally conscious alternative.
RBRC in cooperation with Black & Decker and other battery users,
has established programs in the United States and Canada to
facilitate the collection of spent nickel-cadmium batteries. Help
protect our environment and conserve natural resources by
returning the spent nickel-cadmium battery to an authorized
Black & Decker service center or to your local retailer for recycling.
You may also contact your local recycling center for information on
where to drop off the spent battery, or call 1-800-8-BATTERY.
