iPod Battery recycling
has announced an iPod battery recycling program available at no extra charge to all customers who purchase a TruePower iPod battery upgrade from FastMac. This program is also available to the general public who purchase third party battery replacements and need to properly dispose of their original iPod battery. All disposal fees are covered by FastMac. FastMac will offer all purchasers of TruePower batteries a prepaid padded envelope for return of the original battery at no additional fee. Once received by FastMac, the battery will be properly disposed of at a recycling center where all usable chemicals and components will be recovered. FastMac will also accept iPod batteries from customers of any third party vendors who do not offer recycling options. These customers can ship their battery directly to FastMac for disposal.
