Sept. 28 -- Home improvement retailer Lowe´s Companies Inc. said today it has installed recycling centers in nearly 1,700 U.S. stores to provide a one-stop recycling destination for customers.
In addition to recycling shipping materials such as pallets, wraps and cardboard, Lowe´s stores are now offering to recycle hard-to-handle products like mobile phones, batteries and CFL bulbs.
"Lowe´s is always looking for new and better ways to serve our customers and continue to be responsible stewards of the environment," said Michael Chenard, Lowe´s director of environmental affairs. "Recycling is a simple way to help reduce unnecessary waste in our communities. The recycling centers make it easier for customers to make a difference, and we look forward to continuing to partner with them to promote and support community recycling."
Call2Recycle will handle phones and batteries collected through the recycling centers. The recycling centers will be provided at 1,700 U.S. retail locations.
