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.
