Streamlight Recycles More Than 10,000 Pounds Of Rechargeable Batteries In 2013

Company and distributors collect 3,500 pounds during fourth quarter, company says.

EAGLEVILLE, Pa. — Streamlight announced that the company and several of its U.S. distribution partners recycled nearly 3,500 pounds of rechargeable batteries during the fourth quarter of 2013, with a year-to-date total of over 10,000 pounds.
 
Streamlight’s corporate headquarters in Eagleville, Pa., recycled just over 3,000 pounds of Nickel Cadmium, Lithium Ion, Nickel Metal Hydride, and small Sealed Lead Acid batteries during the fourth quarter. Participating distributors recycled nearly 500 pounds during the same period.
 
The company 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.
 
“We’re proud to do our part in ‘going green,’” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “In 2013, Streamlight and its participating dealers continued to join 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 85 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.

Now LED lights are everywhere, and we’re all familiar with them, even in our homes, but the automotive industry has reaped the benefits as much as, if not more than, any other industry. Just like a diode, LEDs allow current flow in only one direction. When current, or electron flow occurs, photons are released.
