Home Depot Drill Recycling Event

Home Depot Drill Recycling

Are you in the market for a new drill? Do you own an older NiCad Drill? If so you might want to take advantage of The Home Depot Drill Recycling Event going on now at your local THD Store.

WHAT: Drop off your old or broken drill and battery at your local Home Depot store for recycling. The Home Depot will recycle old drills and batteries with an environmentally safe, zero-landfill process, ensuring that every piece of material is reprocessed for reuse.

WHY: After doing your bit to save the environment, reward yourself with an upgrade!  Trade up to a lithium-ion drill – a revolutionary cordless tool that offers more power and less weight, charge fast and run longer.  Lithium-ion chemistry is not harmful to the environment and it outperforms NiCad by as much as 50 percent, requiring less charging time and saving energy.  You can learn the benefits of lithium-ion & view product demos any time at HomeDepot.com.

WHEN: October 7-27, 2010

WHERE: All The Home Depot locations in the U.S.

ADMISSION: Free of charge
