RBRC Announces Recycling Increase for 2008

Atlanta-based Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) has announced an approximately 10 percent increase in rechargeable battery collections for 2008, recycling 6.9 million pounds.

"Many factors contributed to this year's success, including new partnerships and the expansion of our collection program to include a new battery chemistry,” said Carl Smith, CEO of RBRC, in a press release. “But more than anything, continuous support and ongoing involvement from our retail, consumer and community partners has helped us grow our collection efforts year over year."
