Call2Recycle®, North America’s most successful battery collection program, presents our 2012 annual report. By all accounts, it was a successful year: collections were up for the year, public awareness grew, outreach programs generated results and legislative advocacy gained traction.

  • Call2Recycle collected 10 million pounds (4.7 million kilograms) of batteries in 2012, a 16% increase over 8.9 pounds (4 million kilograms) in 2011.

  • Canada collected over 1 million pounds (454,000 kilograms) of batteries. Collections grew in part due to Call2Recycle’s selection as the official battery recycling program for the province of Quebec.

  • Call2Recycle is proud to be the first recycling program of its kind to receive the Responsible Recycling Practices (R2) certification.
Our progress in 2012 sets the stage for shaping a sustainable future. As always, we thank you for your continued support of the Call2Recycle program.
