Streamlight Announces Third Quarter 2013 Recycling Results

Streamlight, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance flashlights, announced that the company and several of its U.S. distribution partners recycled close to 3,500 pounds of rechargeable batteries during the third quarter of 2013, with a year-to-date total of nearly 6,800 pounds.

Streamlight, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance flashlights, announced that the company and several of its U.S. distribution partners recycled close to 3,500 pounds of rechargeable batteries during the third quarter of 2013, with a year-to-date total of nearly 6,800 pounds. 

Streamlight’s corporate headquarters in Eagleville, PA, recycled over 3,000 pounds of Nickel Cadmium and Small Sealed Lead Acid batteries during the third quarter. Participating distributors recycled approximately 400 pounds of Nickel Cadmium, Lithium Ion, Nickel Metal Hydride and Small Sealed Lead batteries during the same period.

Streamlight and its distributors are partners with Call2Recycle, the only free rechargeable battery recycling program in North America.  The program helps businesses care for the environment through its rechargeable battery collection program. 

“Streamlight is proud to do its part in ‘going green,’” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah.  “Once again this year, Streamlight and its participating dealers have joined thousands of U.S. businesses in serving as battery collection sites in a collective effort to maintain a healthy and safe environment for our communities." 

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 help prevent the used products from entering the solid waste stream.

Since 1996, more than 75 million pounds of rechargeable batteries have been collected through Call2Recycle. Various federal and state regulations govern the proper disposal of rechargeable batteries and cell phones, naming Call2Recycle in official legislation as the collection method for eco-safe rechargeable battery and cell phone reclamation and recycling.
