Milwaukee Tool was recently honored with Call2Recycle’s 2012 Leader in Sustainability Award. Call2Recycle first established this award last year to recognize high-performing organizations in Canada and has extended the award in 2012 to include U.S. participants.

"In 2012, 10 million pounds of batteries were collected and diverted from local landfills through participants in the Call2Recycle program. This success is due in large part to the enthusiastic participation of Leaders in Sustainability like Milwaukee Tool,” said Carl Smith, CEO and president, Call2Recycle Inc. “Their consistent dedication to recycling programs demonstrates how organizations can have a positive environmental impact.”

Milwaukee Tool has worked alongside Call2Recycle and other environmentally concerned manufacturers to ensure that batteries introduced into the marketplace are being responsibly recycled at the end of their life-cycle. The company has placed recycling centers in each of its authorized service centers, as well as its distribution facilities to ensure that all batteries are properly recycled.
