Stanley Black & Decker and TerraCycle have partnered to launch a free disposal program designed to recycle home appliances and tools, including products containing integral lithium-ion batteries.
The program accepts a number of products under the Stanley Black & Decker brand portfolio, including DeWalt, Craftsman, Porter-Cable, Bostitch and more. Participants in the program create a TerraCycle account, fill a box with the appliances and tools and mail them using a free shipping label that can be downloaded on the TerraCycle website.
The waste material is then cleaned, sorted and remolded to make new recycled products, according to the companies.
The site for recycling tools containing lithium-ion batteries can be found at this link.
