Kokopelli Music today announced it participation in a worldwide battery recycling program organized by the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), a non-profit, public service organization created to promote the recycling of portable rechargeable batteries and cellular phones. Kokopelli will now accept any rechargeable battery, regardless of where it was purchased, and recycle it. They ship all their old batteries to RBRC, where they use a thermal recovery process to reclaim the metals (nickel, iron, cadmium, lead, and cobalt) from the batteries and prepare them for use in new products such as new batteries and stainless steel.
