Stanley Black & Decker has announced a partnership with TerraCycle®, an international recycling leader to encourage customers to recycle home appliances and tools products containing integral lithium-ion batteries. The free program accepts a variety of products under the Stanley Black & Decker brand portfolio, including BLACK+DECKER®, DEWALT®, CRAFTSMAN®, STANLEY®, PORTER-CABLE®, IRWIN®, LENOX®, MAC TOOLS®, and BOSTITCH®.
Through this partnership, consumers are invited to recycle three categories of Stanley Black & Decker products. Participants of the tool free recycling program are invited to send in Stanley Black & Decker power tools, hand tools, and accessories by signing up on the TerraCycle program page. After signing up, customers can mail in eligible waste using the provided prepaid shipping label.
Participants interested in recycling their Stanley Black & Decker small home appliances, including food processors, coffee makers, blenders, toasters, and more, are invited to sign up on the TerraCycle program page. When ready to ship, customers can download the provided prepaid shipping label, package the appliances in a secure package, and send it to TerraCycle for recycling.
The lithium battery free recycling program invites consumers to recycle appliances and tools with integral lithium batteries. Sign up on the program page and receive a shipping kit to begin collecting. Any products larger than the provided shipping kit cannot be accepted by this program.
Once collected, the waste is cleaned, sorted by the material composition, and reduced into material that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Stanley Black & Decker’s environmental, social, and governance strategy is to be a force for good and is built off a long history of environment, health and safety, social responsibility, and community engagement. The company is focused on reducing their overall environmental footprint, including waste.
