NewerTech Battery Recycling Program ensures ‘Green’, environmentally
WOODSTOCK, IL (Aug. 3, 2006) Newer Technology Inc. (NewerTech) today
announces the launch of a new recycling program providing a no-cost
means for customers to ensure their old PowerBook and iBook batteries
are properly disposed of and that associated recoverable materials
are responsibly recycled.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nearly 3
billion cell-based batteries are purchased each year in the United
States. Improper disposal of batteries creates environmental risks to
groundwater supply and air quality, in addition to the non-recovery
of recyclable materials.
Now included with all NewerTech NuPower laptop batteries is a free
return shipping label. Batteries returned using this label are
directed to the appropriate recycling/disposal center ensuring
properly handling. Information on this recycling program as well as
local disposal options can be found at
“NewerTech has long led the way with the highest capacity and longest
lasting Powerbook and iBook batteries available;” said Larry
O’Connor, President of Newer Technology Inc. “NewerTech is now proud
to lead the way by taking steps that ensure proper
environmentally-friendly laptop battery recycling/disposal with this
no-cost option for our customers.” NewerTech manufactures the NuPower
battery line – the highest capacity replacement batteries available
