Call2Recycle Processor Update


To fulfill our mission of responsibly managing batteries at their end-of-life, Call2Recycle, Inc. regularly evaluates our network of downstream vendors. While Call2Recycle's goal is to keep material management as close to its point of origin as possible, having the flexibility to adjust to market conditions is critical. For Call2Recycle, this means working with multiple processors for various chemistries and not solely one service provider in order to mitigate risks and capacity issues. This ongoing service provider selection and vetting process ensures we're meeting regulatory requirements and maintaining responsible oversight. Access our updated service provider network chart here.
