Do you want to become a Call2Recycle® collection site?

      Program Benefits:

    • Used batteries and cellphones are properly and safely recycled at no charge to you
    • An easy way to keep potentially hazardous waste from entering landfills and give reclaimed materials a second life
    • Collection kits and marketing materials provided at no charge
    • Free shipping (Collection Kit or Bulk)

What is an Industry Steward?

Battery and/or product manufacturers – or what Call2Recycle refers to as their Industry Stewards – have united to ensure that the batteries they are introducing into the marketplace are responsibly recycled when they reach their end of life. Licensees specifically refer to those manufacturers who are financially supporting the Call2Recycle program through the licensing and placement of battery seals on their rechargeable batteries and/or battery-powered products.

What are the Benefits?

  • Producer Responsibility: demonstrates your commitment to environmentally-sound recycling of batteries.
  • Regulatory Solution: fulfills manufacturers’ recycling requirements in the U.S. and Canada, including compliance with state, provincial and federal regulations, including The Battery Act
  • Simplicity: allows manufacturers to manage complexities by supporting one program

What batteries do you recycle?

  • Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd)
  • Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH)
  • Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn)
  • Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
  • Small Sealed Lead Acid (SSLA/Pb)
