it stops to ensure a complete discharge of the batteries. Using a phillips screwdriver,
remove the screws from the product housing and take the two body halves apart. Lift
the batteries out and pull off the terminal clips. See "Service Information" for battery
replacement and RBRC for battery recycling.
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.
