Battery Removal and Disposal
This product uses Lithium Ion rechargeable and recyclable batteries. When the
batteries no longer hold a charge, they should be removed from the Vac and recycled.
They must not be incinerated or composted.
The batteries can be taken for disposal to a Black & Decker, Company-Owned or

recycling program (see “RBRC
Seal”). Call your local retailer for details. If you bring
the batteries to a Black & Decker Company-Owned or Authorized Service Center,
the Center will arrange to recycle old batteries. Or, contact your local municipality for
proper disposal instructions in your city/town.

The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation)
Seal on the 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 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 Lithium
Ion batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural resources by returning
the spent Lithium Ion 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.
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, call: 1-800-544-6986 or visit
