I’ve had a little experience with cell phone companies’ attempts to recycle batteries, and I understand that many of them do a good job of it — but I’m sad to say I know very little about tool companies’ recycling programs. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of the bins.
Have any of you had experiences with these bins and the businesses’ practices regarding them? If so, let us know in comments.
