For years, you’ve asked us to add a single-stream recycling service for both single-use and rechargeable batteries. You told us it would make collections more efficient and eliminate consumer confusion. We listened and expanded our menu of services:
- New single-stream recycling of rechargeable and single-use batteries.
- New recycling services for damaged, defective, recalled (DDR) Li-Ion batteries.
- New pay-as-you-go collection kits in varying sizes, or a bulk shipping option, available in a new online store.
Our new services are designed to optimize battery collections for the growing volume of household batteries (under 11 lbs.) requiring end of life recycling as well as to relieve consumer confusion over which batteries they can recycle. Enrollment in the new program has been strong and steady.
Our rechargeable program is changing too. Many Call2Recycle collection sites are being moved to a fee-based rechargeable battery recycling service to help us keep pace with market changes. Public-facing collection sites, such as those offered by municipalities, industry stewards and qualified national retailers, remain eligible for free rechargeable battery recycling services. Our services are competitively priced to ensure everyone can participate.
These changes will ensure Call2Recycle’s nationwide battery recycling program continues to meet the highest environmental recycling standards. To learn more about how these changes apply to your organization, contact your Call2Recycle account manager or Customer Service at 877-723-1297 (available M-F from 8 am-6 pm ET).Share
