DETROIT EDISON HELPS CITY OF DETROIT RECYCLE USED BATTERIES

 DETROIT EDISON HELPS CITY OF DETROIT RECYCLE USED BATTERIES
 DETROIT, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Edison (NYSE: DTE) is working with the city of Detroit to provide for the disposal of used household batteries in an environmentally safe manner.
 The city has placed drop-off boxes for the collection of used batteries in Detroit Edison customer offices in Detroit.
 The city will collect the boxes -- which will accommodate all sizes and types of household batteries -- from the offices and then sort and recycle as many of the batteries as possible. Those batteries that cannot be recycled will be disposed of in a proper manner.
 Diana Rascano, director of customer offices for the utility's Detroit Division, said this project is part of Detroit Edison's ongoing commitment to improving the environment.
 "Protecting the environment is an important part of the way we do business," Rascano said. "Since the mid-1970s, Detroit Edison has spent more than $2.5 billion on environmental protection.
 "The collection program helps keep the batteries out of the waste going to the Detroit Resource Recovery Plant. This keeps metals out of the air emissions. Recycling used batteries also helps the environment by significantly reducing the amount of potentially harmful waste that must be disposed of in landfills," she said.
 Residents can drop off their used batteries at the Edison Plaza Office, 660 Plaza Drive; the Conner Mini-Office, 4804 Conner; the Grand River Mini-Office, 21600 Grand River; the Northeast Energy Center at 13303 E. McNichols, or the Northwest Energy Center at 17227 W. Seven Mile Road.
