GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Rechargeable nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries are indispensible to keep your army of wireless gadgets going. But after a while they lose their punch and need to be phased out.
Return them for recycling instead of tossing them out, urges the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation, a not-for-profit organization that sponsors the ''Charge Up to Recycle!'' program.
To find a retail site or recycling center, call 1 (800) 8-BATTERY; Web site is rbrc.org.
