Global Technology Systems Takes the Lead for Earth Day: A Free Recycling Program

Posted April 19, 2018

Today, April 22, is Earth day and it’s time to return the love to the planet we all call home. Thanks to Global Technology Systems (GTS) they will be providing a Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling program.

You may be asking yourself why do I need to recycle my batteries? Well, Lithium-Ion batteries consist primarily of chemicals and metals which in turn allow the battery to hold a long charge and remain light at the same time. These chemicals and metals consist of lithium, cobalt, and other materials that can be extremely harmful to the environment we live in. The improper disposal of these batteries as trash leads to water contamination, soil contamination, and among other things negative environmental/health outcomes.

The Recycling Process:

  • GTS will provide customers involved in the program with free battery recycling boxes at each enrolled facility.
  • Once the battery recycling box is filled, simply call the toll-free phone number on the box and it will be picked-up and properly disposed of by a GTS-certified recycling firm.
  • Once a recycling box has been provided to the recycling firm another recycling box will be provided to continue this free service.

Help make our Earth a better place to live, recycle the batteries that help power all of your mobile operations.
