Milwaukee Tool Receives 2012 Leader in Sustainability Award

Milwaukee Tool's "consistent dedication to recycling programs" has positive environmental impact.

Demonstrating an exceptional commitment to their battery recycling program, Milwaukee Tool was recently honored with Call2Recycle’s “2012 Leader in Sustainability Award.”

“In 2012, 10 million pounds of batteries were collected and diverted from local landfills through participants in the Call2Recycle program. This success is due in large part to the enthusiastic participation of Leaders in Sustainability like Milwaukee Tool,” said Carl Smith, CEO and president, Call2Recycle, Inc. “Their consistent dedication to recycling programs demonstrates how organizations can have a positive environmental impact.”

Milwaukee Tool has worked hard alongside Call2Recycle and other environmentally concerned manufacturers to ensure that batteries introduced into the marketplace are being responsibly recycled at the end of their life-cycle. Through a recycling partnership with Call2Recycle, the first product stewardship program for rechargeable batteries, Milwaukee Tool has helped contribute to the more than 10 million pounds of batteries properly managed and diverted from landfills in 2012.

"We are proud to partner with Call2Recycle to minimize the environmental impacts of the products we launch,” says Mark Hickok, director of Safety and Regulatory for Milwaukee Tool Corporation. “We have placed recycling centers in each of our authorized service centers, as well as our distribution facilities to ensure that all batteries are properly recycled.”

Call2Recycle first established the Leader in Sustainability award last year to recognize high-performing organizations in Canada and has extended the award in 2012 to include U.S. participants.  As a leader in cordless power tool development, Milwaukee says it is committed to continue in this product stewardship effort and looks forward to a continued relationship with Call2Recycle.
