All batteries included. (Back Page).

The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corp. (RBRC), Atlanta, is now accepting rechargeable batteries of all chemistry types.

The move was encouraged by some 300 manufacturing and marketing companies who said they would support RBRC's expansion beyond nickel-cadmium batteries.

Additional batteries that the non-profit group will now accept include nickel-metal hydride, lithium ion and small sealed lead rechargeable batteries. The move allows RBRC to broaden the types of wireless power units it can collect.

"Our battery recycling message is now very simple: If you can recharge it, you can recycle it'," says RBRC president and CEO C. Norman England. "Now that our program's expansion is official, we can further our mission to keep rechargeable batteries out of landfills."
