The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery
Recycling Corporation) Seal on the
nickel-cadmium or lithium-ion 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 or lithium-ion 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 or lithium-ion
batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural
resources by returning the spent batteries 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.
All Black & Decker Service Centers are staffed with trained
personnel to provide customers with efficient and reliable power tool
service. Whether you need technical advice, repair, or genuine
factory replacement parts, contact the Black & Decker location
nearest you. To find your local service location, refer to the yellow
page directory under "Tools—Electric" or call: 1-800-544-6986 or
