Battery recycling and disposal

Japan

IBM participates in the rechargeable battery collection and recycling system organized by the JBRC (Secondary Rechargeable Battery Recycling promotion center of Japan) and sponsored by the Battery Association of Japan (BAJ).

IBM pays into the system based on the number of machines it places on the market in Japan.

Consumers can return used batteries to recycling boxes located at major electronic product retail stores where rechargeable batteries are sold.
