Protecting the environment

Should you find one day that your appliance
needs replacement, or if it is of no further use to
you, think of the protection of the environment.
Black & Decker repair agents will accept old
Black & Decker tools and ensure that they are
disposed of in an environmentally safe way.
Separate collection of used products and
packaging allows materials to be recycled and
used again. Re-use of recycled materials helps
prevent environmental pollution and reduces the
demand for raw materials.
