Did You Know? Call2Recycle All Battery Offering


Like paper, plastic or glass, we want battery recycling to be a mainstream sustainable practice. Our battery recycling program offers the freedom to do just that with flexible options for all battery types. To enhance your battery recycling efforts or launch a corporate battery collection program, contact us or shop our store.

Charge Up Safety!™ Update


Call2Recycle launched our Charge Up Safety!™ campaign in fall 2017 to keep safety top of mind. Central to this effort: safety training to ensure our partners are well-versed in battery recycling protocols. All program participants are required to complete a brief, 10-minute training to stay active and receive collection boxes. Has your site completed training? For questions or to learn more, contact customer service via email or at 1-877-723-1297.

Help promote this eco-friendly practice and make it a great year for students and the planet!
