In an effort to be an environmentally responsible organization, Streamlight Inc. has expanded its participation in Call2Recycle, to include its U.S. distributors that choose to serve as battery collection sites. By recycling used rechargeable flashlight batteries through Call2Recycle, a free rechargeable battery collection program, Streamlight and participating distribution partners are demonstrating their commitment to the environment by adopting green business practices.
“‘Going green’ is imperative in today’s business climate, and Streamlight is proud to offer the opportunity to participate in this program to its U.S. distribution partners,” said Ray Sharrah, Streamlight president and CEO. “Those who choose to serve as battery collection sites will join thousands of businesses nationwide who understand how battery recycling contributes to a healthy and safe environment for our communities.”
By recycling customers’ rechargeable batteries, Streamlight and its participating dealers will prevent the used products from entering the solid waste stream.
Since 1994, more than 50 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.
