STREAMLIGHT & PARTNERS RECYCLED MORE THAN 3,200 POUNDS OF RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES IN THIRD QUARTER-2011The third quarter recycling results for 2011 are in, and the numbers are truly inspiring. Along with its U.S. distribution partners, Streamlight collected more than 3,200 pounds of recyclable batteries in the third quarter; and approximately 12,500 pounds year to date.
"Going green is imperative in today's business climate, and we are proud to do our part," said Ray Sharrah, Streamlight's President and CEO. "Streamlight and its participating dealers, who serve as battery collection sites, are joining thousands of businesses nationwide who understand how battery recycling contributes to a healthy and safe environment."
Sharrah said that during the third quarter, Streamlight's participating U.S. dealers recycled approximately 400 pounds of Nickel Cadmium, Lithium Ion, Nickel Metal Hydride, and Small Sealed Lead Acid batteries in partnership with Call2Recycle®, the only free rechargeable battery collection program in North America. Call2Recycle helps businesses care for the environment through its rechargeable battery collection program.
Streamlight's corporate headquarters in Eagleville, PA also recycled about 2,800 pounds of Small Sealed Lead Acid batteries during the same period.
Rechargeable batteries are a long-lasting, eco-friendly power source for many electronic devices, including flashlights, laptop computers, cell phones, portable scanners and printers, power tools and PDAs. By recycling customers' rechargeable batteries, Streamlight and its participating dealers will prevent the used products from entering the solid waste stream.
