Streamlight's Recycling Total Grows

Based in Eagleville, Pa., the flashlight manufacturer recycled nickel cadmium and small, sealed lead acid batteries during the third quarter.

Streamlight announced it, working with several of its U.S. distribution partners, recycled almost 3,500 pounds of rechargeable batteries during the third quarter of 2013. So far this year, the recycled total is nearing 6,800 pounds, or three tons.

Based in Eagleville, Pa., the flashlight manufacturer recycled nickel cadmium and small, sealed lead acid batteries during the third quarter. Participating distributors recycled about 400 pounds of nickel cadmium, lithium ion, nickel metal hydride, and small sealed lead batteries this year.

Streamlight and its distributors are partners with Call2Recycle®, which the company reports is the only free rechargeable battery recycling program in North America. "Streamlight is proud to do its part in going green," said Streamlight President and CEO 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."
